Alright, the time has come and I have decided to make an iOS 7 Parallax wallpaper pack. Trouble is, the past couple of weeks have proven themselves all too full of work so I have had a limited time to kick off the process of collecting older images and cropping them again. I have also not fully settled on the cropping size. Apples own wallpapers seem to be set to a very specific size but part of me wonders if they are cut too close after a small amount of internal testing. So I either go with what Apple has chosen (744×1392) or go with a more broad approach (adding 200px padding on all sides 1040×1536) that may end up appealing to a wider set of mobile users anyway. Some of you guys are really picky about this topic so here is your chance to join in and let me know your opinion should you have one.
Many of you are clever about it and are just using the iPad versions on their phones and choosing where the phone crops the images. The lines are heavily blurred now as far as getting a clean, specific to the device crop because of the padding needed around the edges for this effect as well as the gentle zooming that occurs when you enter a folder. I am more inclined to rest on the side of caution and use the more broad resolution.
At any rate, the real reason I am writing today is to give everyone fair opportunity to tell me your personal favorite images here on 50ft so I can try and get your favorites into the newest wallpaper pack. While I will not be able to make EVERYONE happy I will do my best, as I always do, to narrow the selection down to well rounded set of images both old and new for you to dig through and enjoy. I will of course keep the clean aesthetic of iOS 7 in mind when I choose images. Please, use the comments below to leave any requests or comments on resolution choice.
I will most likely have two sets, one for the iPhone and one for the iPad. I hope to get them up within the next week. Sorry to keep everyone waiting but I think making sure I get it right the first time is going to be best for everyone.
Either leave the file name or better yet, a link to the post where your favorite was originally posted, thanks!.
