iPad Starter Pack Easy Access

I realized that this may be something to consider once I started making wallpapers for the iPad but the device is not a full computer and will not handle zip files so someone browsing by with one that wanted to grab a few could not easily add them to their photo library.

I think the best way to handle this will ultimately be to start up a sister blog of some kind where I can easily post iPad and iPhone versions of desktop images as well as including them in the zips. This way you could jump on over to a 50ft mini site on your idevice and grab a few wallpapers directly on the device. OR maybe simply add links to the images from each desktop post. Either way would be fine by me.

What do you think?

To get things started here I will include all the ipad wallpapers here in this post for anyone who wants to get them directly on their iPad so follow the read more link to see the thumbnails and click through to the ones you would like to get your hands on. :)

I assume the iPad works in the same way as the phone and you can touch a thumbnail here to see it bigger then touch and hold the larger image that loads until options pop up that allow you to save it. Let me know how they look on an iPad! :) Enjoy!

    Either is fine, but, definitely, thanks.

    I think it’s a wonderful idea. So glad you thought about that. Thanks for the wallpapers.

    Either idea is great, though embedded links might be easier than an entire separate site. Thank you very much for the beautiful pictures. I’m looking forward to enjoying them on my iPad!

    I think at this point I will not only put it in the zip files but also have a simple text link to them with each desktop post. In the future I will most likely refine the process along with my panned re-design and slight reforming of the site. All in good time :) Thanks for the input.

Any use of these images for any purpose other than this is a violation of these terms and anyone found using said images will be asked to either compensate the creator for doing so or be asked to stop using them immediately.

I ask that you refrain from using any images found on fiftyfootshadows.net to create physically printed material of any kind. This includes posters, photographic prints, fliers, etc. Under no circumstances may you make a physical reproduction without written permission.

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself. Any images submitted and shared as wallpapers are the property of the artist who created them and in the same manner as my images, you are asked to receive permission before using them in any way aside from their intended use. Any use of these images outside of for your own personal use as a desktop wallpaper image is prohibited without permission from the author of the image. Commercial licensing is available upon request. Please write with any inquiries.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at www.fiftyfootshadows.net and give a credit to www.fiftyfootshadows.net. Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
