Default PAL Screen Workbench Wallpapers

Hi

Im looking for a place to get wallpapers for Workbench. But it only has PAL screen modes, no graphics card. So I guess Im looking for some nice HAM8 (?) pictures in the right res to use. Does anyone know of a good web site?

Thanks

Robert

@me

Maybe a better question(s) would have been:

Whats the best format to convert pictures to (keeping the right aspect ratio) for use on a PAL (Hi-res) screen as a wallpaper? Also whats the best format?

Thanks
Robert

Try old faithful:
http://de.aminet.net/aminet/

I downloaded Sonic The Hedgehog from Back2Roots the other day. It is perhaps divine justice that the site has been zapped offline.

:-D

What do you mean "best format"? I thought Workbench could only display IFF as wallpaper...

If OS3.9 displays wallpapers using datatypes then I'd pick a simple, low colour IFF so you're not slowing bootup with JPG.

PAL Hi-Res is 640x256, Hi-Res Laced is 640x512. Neither are the same aspect ratio of 4:3 that your monitor mask will be.

These resolutions are 4:3:
320x240
640x480
768x576
800x600
1024x768
1152x864
1280x960
1600x1200
2048x1536

1280x1024 is effectively (and bizarrely) a screenmode double the resolution of PAL 640x512. This is a little odd since it is mostly used in the PC market. To properly appreciate this resolution (and that of 640x512) you'd either need a squarer monitor (like LCD panels) or adjust your onscreen dimensions with the monitor settings.

Hum,
you have access to PPaint? Just a simple case of cropping/resizing...

You can also save IFFs in `Paint Shop Pro` (PC)

Or you could get one very small image brush, perhaps an eyeball, and tile it over your entire Workbench screen. Then for some sadistic reason place the icons on the eyeballs.

You'd have to be deranged to do that though...
