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 are the various theme base colours from WP7
wp7themecolours.png

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

GeoLuminations

Introducing GeoLuminations

IMG_0126.JPG


Works with any combination of calendar events, unread emails, etc! Choose either the version that has the double square at the bottom (as seen in the real-life picture) or the single square. That simply frames the notifications a bit more.

Updated on 11/11/2010 to not cut off long calendar appointments.

Enjoy!

Great work, can I suggest not trying to enclose the calendar area? To the right hand side of the calendar, text will flow over and off the right hand side of the page. Will all the templates so far calendar test flows over the edge and looks a little messy. If you have short text in the calendar it looks okay.

Ah yeah I see what you're saying. I'll update my GeoLocations to fix that, check my original post in an hour from now and I should have it updated (I won't post when I update it so I don't clutter the thread too much). Thanks for the suggestion!

Light background

Hello

Very nice work of you guys indeed. Might I suggest to provide versions for the light background too? Maybe there are others beside me who use that one :)
I hope I named the background right, just having access to the german WP7.

Cheers

I use the light theme on my phone, but I believe that the lockscreen must always be a dark color, since no matter what your theme is, the text on the lockscreen is white. The text would be invisible on a white lockscreen background!

New Lockscreen Theme - White Background/Red Highlight

This is a theme for the white background users! I can make it in all the colors available as a theme in WP7 (including for black backgrounds) but it would be a lot easier if I could get emulator screenshots of the different theme colors.

Nevertheless, here's the lockscreen for the white background + red highlight theme! It works really well with the device!!

Here's the Lockscreen file, view it from your phone and right click (long hold) it, then save it to your phone.

So, I found some nice "Legs" images and formatted them to fit the Windows Phone 7 screen. All in all...pretty nice :)

I may be going to Hell...but I accept it :p

I ended up making a few when I could. They are just cropped images I found.

    note: i attempted to reshade accent couours to offset phone's 'darkening' effect.. after much frustration i gave up; as such, presented in the pack are the base colours (if someone ever figures an accurate way to recolour and provides colour swatches & rgb values i'd be happy to adjust them)
