2 slack wallpapers I made


made during a coffe break and it shows - i call them minimalistic - and i suspect i know what other people will call them

there are 3 sizes 1024 1280 and 1600, in white and black backgrounds

White
1024
1280
1600

Black
1024
1280
1600

I know i am going to regret this but what the hell

if anyone requires a widescreen version, i have one that i use on my tv but its only at 1360x768.

if you like them and want to use them or host them on a site fell free - just give credit please and a link to my site - when i have it running properly, only have a guide for setting up a webserver on windows slackware guides and other open source goodness will go there soon

I like a lot. The black one would be great for a boot splash screen with grub.

as i said in original post i left them like that as they are clean, and thats what i go for a nice clean desktop, no clutter take a look here or here for my current desktop
plus im not that great with adobe photoshop (yes yes i know windows app booo) and havent given gimp a look yet but if anyone knows of any guides they could point me too maybe i could make something a bit different

Umm, don't take it the wrong way but here it goes.
How do you suggest one gives you a credit and link to your site with a wallpaper?
You want your name and website listed on the screen?
Well, not on my screen. You can keep your "wallpaper".
And what you call a desktop I call an empty screen with four icons and a small logo in the middle.
I have four different wallpapers, one on each of four desktops and 25 icons, and I would have twice as many icons but want to keep them from covering the wallpaper.
I guess that wouldn't be a problem with your wallpaper, hehe.
Ummm, I could have like 150 icons on such desktop. And there still would be room for credits and website address too.
Lol.
Phhhleeeease, go find some other suckers. Maybe on Neowin.net

I personally quite like them carpo, thanks. I enjoy the minimalist look. And if you repost anyone's wallpapers to another site it is only polite to give them credit, Slackovado .
