Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

I was testing oxipng and found out that you can compress the wallpapers gaining about 1.3MB:

I used:

oxipng -o max *.png

The pngs went from 9.9 MiB to 8.6 MiB an overall 13% reduction for the pngs. Maybe you should look into doing something like that?

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

A bit on the subtle side, maybe - but I like my desktops clean tongue
The main fill colour is uniform, so you can bucket-fill, and it's easy to open it in Gimp and change hue and chroma to get colour variations.

Logo:
Archlinux dark blue embossed logo

1920x1080 desktop wallpaper:
Archlinux dark blue embossed 1920x1080 background

Edit: Added a logo with a bit more colour. As the background is uniform, you can make any size wallpaper by sizing and filling and moving things about smile

E.g. like this 1920x1080 desktop wallpaper:

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

Here are  a couple of my contributions. Apologies if the contributed wallpapers are not up to regulations but I'd like to think the colors express the liveliness of Archlinux.

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

Here's a simple minimalist wallpaper I made, inspired by macOS Wallpapers, using Autodesk Sketchbook and Figma with 4096x3072 resolution

xyproto could you perhaps also consider hosting a contest for bitmaps specifically made for splash screen on boot?

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

This maybe a bit controversial but I think that wallpapers should express a distro withought putting the logo or name on it. Neither windows nor Mac does that. While their closed soirced ness isn't something we should learn from, their wallpaper designs are. Having the logo or name may overlap with task bar on top or below and doesn't look very seamless.

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

Ahemm, you might want to look up the official wallpapers fro Win8 and Win10… tongue

The "problem" about that is that those wallpapers show up in A LOT or marketing material what links them to the OS.
People know what the XP wallpaper look like despite being born when during Vista.

That being said, I personally try to have the logo in there w/o just putting it over the actual wallpaper - I never liked that in any form.

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

I agree with you after switching to sway from plasma. The thing about plasma is that it has a big taskbar at the bottom with shadows but with the small bar of sway where the colours can also be customised, it fits more seamlessly with the logo and word designs of many wallpapers. BTW windows 11 doesn't come with logo wallpapers and I don't know of any Mac or chromeos default wallpapers with logos.

I don't think that sounds controversial at all - but it does sound difficult smile

I love a good wallpaper, but at the same time I tend to find them distracting, so I always end up with something quite dark and very toned down - but I do want it to express the distro; I love Arch; it's flat out the best distro I have ever used, and the idea of having a wallpaper that "expresses" Arch Linux is tantalizing.

So how to go about it?

I am currently using dark toned backgrounds with the logo, as described in my post above, and I have tried making more colourful backgrounds, such as these, but that's logos too.

Looking at default wallpapers for Windows and MacOS I don't think I see quite how they express anything that relates to my impression of those OS'es - except, with a little modification, this one maybe catches Windows to a certain degree smile

Re: Official Arch Linux Wallpapers

Indeed!

They are very nice - and these two even does that trick of not actually using the logo or name:

But the haiku one illustrates well that wallpapers can look good with logos also.

Actually, I think good wallpapers are good quite independently of whether they contain a logo or name, or not smile

Good ones, Seth!
