Exclamation Wallpapers

Hey all, was curious how many of you knew of the wallpapers on the sportbikes.com site, and what you all think of them? I know the artist personally, pretty talented guy too.

Thoughts?

Nope, didn't know they were there. Look good, but not for me. Already got my wallpapers.

They're good. I wish there would be some resolution options for users with large or widescreen monitors. e.g. in addition to 1024x768, offer 1280x1024, 1600x1200, 1440x900, 1680x1050, etc. My monitor is the latter so I can't use the wallpapers effectively.

I will pass it along. I think the August wallpapers are done, so it might have to wait until September, thanks for the input!

Now with screen res all over the place with wide screens and all... I just center the 1024 image and wrap it in black. It also allows for clean icon identification on the sides.

Gimme some wide aspect wallpapers ! My screen is running 1920 x 1200 right now which makes it hard to find good wallpapers.

I say he should make them to fit the biggest possiable screen. Images look better scaled down than when scaled up.

Ok ok, so the cats out of the bag....I am the one that has been doing the wallpapers.

I have been working with sportbikes (Mike) for a few years on projects here and there. I do Graphic Design on the side, so if anyone needs help, I am available!


And no, I do not help with livestock...that's Tippy's dept..........kangaroos and dingos are cookee's dept.
