Post [Screensavers] Show off your Nook Touch ScreenSavers

I haven't seen a lot of good Screensaver sets out there for the nook touch, most don't even properly fit the screen, and I don't care for the two that come with it. I'd like to have this thread be a place where people can post theirs and get lots of awesome ones. The only rule I can think of is all pictures should be .jpg and have to be at 600x800 res.

Installing screensavers is as easy as follows:
  • Plug nook into computer via usb.
  • In the internal flash storage go into a folder call screensavers.
  • Make a new folder in here. Note: the name of the folder will also be the name of the screensaver/set.
  • Whatever pictures you put in the new folder will be added to that screensaver/set.

I'll start off with a clean version from one of my favorite mangas Elfen Lied! If you would like the non-clean (just 5 extra pictures) pm me.

I gathered a bunch on high resolution personal photos (family, pets, vacations), opened them in gimp, cropped them so that they were the correct ratio than scaled them down to 800x600. Lastly i converted them to grayscale. Some were landscape, some were portrait. If they were landscape i had to rotate them clockwise. The hardest part was trying to get the right ratio without cutting too much out.

They fill the whole screen and look great!

Well, don't forget about these sites for your NST Screensaver pleasure:

The Nook Wallpapers Pool
The Kindle Backgrounds Pool (these work just fine as they are all in exactly the same res as the NST backgrounds)
...and, of course, the ever-popular Nook-Look.com (with screensavers for both color Nooks and e-ink versions)

Lots to choose from.

This sounds stupid, but I'm still looking for other "dead author" pics of famous people... even living authors. I know that the B&N brick and mortar store has one of Stephen King that looks pretty cool. I think that style of portrait is pretty neat. Maybe someone can come up with a Photoshop filter or something to do that...

Anyone want to pack the kindle ones up into screensaver sets(as their already black and white)? And I know someones got to have made their own that they want to show off! Like ones' of their favorite authors or the covers of their favorite books? Drizzit anyone?

Default Pair of Nook Simple Touch Screensavers

Bought my Mom a Simple Touch for Xmas; she likes flowers so I put together a 5-picture flower screensaver for her that includes the "press Nook button" graphic on the bottom. Also, made a light & dark version of the B&N Nook logos for screensavers. Hope somebody can use them.
