    wallpaper question...

    Advertisement



    just a brief question about creating wallpapers from jpgs; no problem getting them resized (320 x 240) or getting them onto the bb and actually using as a wallpaper/bg.

    The problem is that most appear slightly pixelated (I think posterized is the correct word) when viewed up close.

    Now this is not a major thing, granted, especially when used as the bg screen with the icons over it etc. And I am using hi rez files--even up to 300ppi. Still get the very small pixelation at the edges and for a perfectionist like me, not good.

    One thing I noticed is that the stock pictures that came with the bb are in the 30-50 KB size range. Even my highest rez shots (300ppi) shots are only 10-12 KB.

    Should I change the ratios to 640 x 480 (double) instead or use 400ppi (don't see why that would matter but whatever works)?

    Thanks, J.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~try a higher resolution also check if the stock BB photos are jpg the could be another type. Also try NOT resizing. I recently copied a few 1024x768 photos over full sizw and noticed no pixelation. Good luck

    Re: wallpaper question...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i'll try using the original files- they come out of the camera huge but one of my slrs shoots at 72 ppi which I then manipulate. A follow up question iguess is what is the highest rez the bb screen can read? ie computer screen =72 ppi.

    I'm a semi pro photog and I want to make wp/bg from local shots,colleges, etc.

    Thanks!
