Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

Kind of Arch related if you squint, I guess?

Is CC-BY ok?

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

Hello there,
Here's a little something I've made a few months ago and use to this day.

Made in AI, quite lightweight, ~50KB@5K resolution.

Other resolutions and source available in a repo.

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

I think PNGs are always preferred. As you said, a 10MB PNG is large, but it is usually easy to fix with GIMP.

You just:
1) Open GIMP
2) File -> Open -> YourImage.png
3) Image -> Precision -> 8-bit Integer
4) Image -> Mode -> Indexed...
5) Maximum number of colors -> (I've found for my images 256 has no visible loss, but you may need to increase above that if your image is more complicated or, if your image only has a few colors you could set it to [amount of colors + 1])
6) Convert
7) File -> Export as...
8) Add desired name and location
9) Export
10) Compression level -> (this is lossless compression, I've found that 5 is a good mix between speed and size)
11) Untick everything except [Save color profile] and [Save resolution]
12) Export

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

Still 7MB @255 colors…
Since it's not meant a contest contribution, the jpeg should do fine smile

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

'nother one (2482x1396 only, jpeg, 696kB)

@ewaller, I saw you posted it in another forum and the context suggests that you hold the rights to the photo.
Do you want  to turn this into a serious contest submission?
(Or do you actually hate the variations?)

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

Nah, I posted it for fun, not many people are using a vector display on their Arch boxen smile  Yes, I own the rights to the photo, the oscilloscope, arbitrary function generator, and the yard beyond the window.
That picture is an oscilloscope, running in XY mode being fed by a dual channel arbitrary waveform generator.   For fun in the era of Covid, I took the Arch Logo, reduced it to black and white, wrote a python program to identify the coordinates that were "on", picked one, then finds the nearest neighbor pixel, generates a vector between the two, moves to the new point, and repeats until it has generated vectors between all points.  The program then generates parametric equations x(t), and y(t), calculates the wave forms for x(t) and y(t), and fed them to the two channels of the function generator.  My wife looks at it and just shakes her head.

I do like the variations though.  Thank you.

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

Hi everyone, first reply and a way for me to (perhaps) contribute to the Arch project. Yours if you want them:

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

Hi,

i have two images to offer (how do I do a small preview for an Imgur link?):



gzGUfRP.jpeg


mnIiR51.jpg

The matrix stile picture is made in gimp, ethe background is a screenshot of cmatrix running in my terminal.

The second picture was taken by me and also edited in gimp. I have no knowledge about licensing, but I think they should be fine?
