I started a new post because the other template wallpaper threads are not accurate. This template will not scale and has layers of both landscape and portrait home screen outlines. I also made a layer with the landscape icon grid for adjusting backgrounds to match icon placement.

I made this template through trial and error.

The template is in .psd format.
There are 6 layers.
- 1 Landscape homepage outline (Green)
- 2 Portrait homepage outline (Red)
- 3 Landscape Icon Grid (White)
- 4 Test border (Red) used to test borders.
- 5 Wallpaper Dead Space (Greenish, used to show dead space)
- 6 Background (Dark Grey)

To use in GIMP. After opening template, goto file, open as layer. make sure opened layer is between 4 & 5th layers. Align, turn off visibility to all layers but 5 & 6, then save as a png.

Upload to tab and use stock Gallery and stretch as far as possible.

Again, the green is dead space, it will not appear once loaded.


Thumbs of template:

Here are a couple of wallpapers, not great wallpapers, but HD images to show the power of our screens.

I just removed the other images, they are too big, they can be found at the link above.

Great work, Honeycomb's useless wallpaper picker is my biggest complaint with it, this will be very helpful.

i was gonna use your template to make my own wallpaper, but I found the one you made with the record and it was pretty much what I was gonna make anyway, so I totally stole it! Seriously though, thanks a bunch! you are awesome.

Post an image or a link, and I'll make a wallpaper and post it. Has to be at least 1920x1080.
1920x1200 works better if you use portrait mode.

Glad to hear it's getting used.

Give me some thanks if you like it.

Much appreciated.

i found on my Iconia very strange behavior

ROM HV 1.2 with Richard's Kernel 3.4

I just took one of your wallpapers (i tried as well others) and put on my home screen and directly after that i saw small pieces of those green corners on my tablet in every corner - but only on the last left or right screen - in landscape - in portrait was ok.

But after reboot - green pieces where gone and the wallpaper looks great.

Hi, Scott,

I have tried to use your template here but I'm not having any luck getting this to do what I want, I have attached the image would you be so kind as taking a look at it and if possible fitting it to within your template. I would like it to be perfectly centered so that if in landscape or portrait it is perfectly in the middle, with a light blue background on the image.

Thanks for looking at this.

No Problem
Hope this works, I took some liberties.

The easiest way to get an image is to open it some sort of editor and make the dimensions 1918 x 1406.

My template was for the original ROM, I have since change several times and for whatever reason, each ROM is a little different. I believe the template I used was right, but if not let me know what the issues is, namely some of the green is showing up and I will see what i can do.

If you like, hit the 'Thanks' button.
