Windows Phone 7 Lockscreen Wallpaper Repository [Template/New]
We all know Windows Phone 7 doesn't have custom wallpapers for the homescreen, however it does have custom wallpaper for the lockscreen.
The lock screen of course displays metro stylized textual information.
This information has a nasty tendency to move around based on how much information it needs to display. However, if you have a scheduled event always on your calendar with a locational field filled - this information rarely if ever moves beyond these defined limits. As such, we can stylize wallpapers around this information.
[Provided you always have something scheduled between now and the next 48 hours]
So here I am looking to be a Wallpaper repository, but then also a collection of lockscreen wallpaper based off the data template.
Some of you may have seen the post on Pocketnow about the lockscreen wallpaper with data segmentation in mind. Someone on there requested I make a thread here so I did.
This goes around the set data on the WP7 lockscreen and looks pretty dang good. So I'd like to post this template up so others can build much better wallpapers than me off a similar concept now that they have set coordinates.
Also, you can post your normal lockscreen wallpapers as well.
Every other device has a repository but I'd like for this one to be WP7 centric.
This is how it looks on my Samsung Focus
here is a link to the one with I <3 Windows Phone]
Here are the various theme base colours from WP7
Lime 140 190 41
Brown 156 81 0
Pink 230 113 181
Orange 239 150 8
Blue 25 162 222
Red 230 20 0
Green 49 154 49
Magenta 255 0 148
Purple 164 0 255
Teal 0 170 173
These are the theme colour values directly from the system, however, keep in mind that Windows Phone 7 applies an 80% filter to the images when they are set as your wallpaper. As such, colours posted like those on the left, appear on your device as the block on the right.
In order to balance out this effect, use a RGB Multiplier of 1.25x so when WP7 applies the 80% filter you can match the proper colours.
So please, post your wallpaper designs. Either something based off the template or entirely new or something WP7 related.
Note for posting: Try and show your wallpaper but also attach as a ZIP if possible - that way, users can set it directly from their phones!
Please try to only post if you have a Wallpaper - these threads get disgustingly large so please try to only post to contribute
