A Little Goodie

The other day I was testing Pixelmator 1.6 Nucleus by playing with the famous Bokeh tutorial (brought to Pixelmator users by the famous graphics designer Fabio Sasso), and I created a desktop picture for my Mac, iPhone, and new iPad (yay, I do have that one and highly recommend it to everyone!). And boy, this Bokeh desktop picture came out so amazing on all three – Mac, iPhone and iPad.

Even though you can do one yourself easily in Pixelmator, I could not resist doing a good thing and sharing it with you, so download it now (package includes Bokeh backgrounds for your Mac, iPad, and iPhone).

Also, you can sort of personalize it quickly by opening the downloaded images in Pixelmator and, for example, changing the color hue and/or saturation (Choose Image > Hue and Saturation).


Update: The package now also includes standard-size (1024 x 1024) version of Bokeh picture for your iPad (Thanks to Dave M. for letting me know about it – I am not that experienced iPader yet 🙂 )

    Guys, iPad wallpaper needs to be 1024×1024 so that no matter what orientation the iPad is in, the wallpaper looks the same.

  • Oomu

    Tes 1024×1024 in fact. That way, the wallpaper will fit both orientation

  • Saulius Dailide

    Will add 1024 x 1024 version tomorrow. I am a bit tired today. Still lot’s of work with Pixelmator 🙂

  • Dave M.

    I just took the desktop wallpaper, cropped it to a square ratio and resized it to 1024×1024 with Pixelmater. 🙂

    I just wanted to make sure you guys know that iPad wallpapers should be 1024×1024.
