1920x1080 Only (Restart)

This isn't exactly a new group. It's a group that got deleted a while ago. The person in charge of it had a lot of groups already & felt they needed to give some up.

I had lots of wallpapers in this group & was sad to see it go. So, I started experimenting with designing a new Group Avatar. One thing led to another & voila: here is the group again!

1920 x1080 is a resolution that many computers have. If I were to come to this website looking for wallpapers, this is the type of group that I would want to find. I've seen many great designs on DN that just wouldn't look right on my 1920 by 1080 screen. This group can solve that problem for many people.

Feel free to put any of your wallpapers in this group that are high quality, & follow the D.N. Guidelines. Please make certain that your wallpapers are exactly a 1920 x 1080 Resolution. I've decided to moderate the group at first, in part because I've had a change in my schedule and can't keep an eye on the group like I thought I would be able to. At some point, I will make the submissions open.

Start adding your 1920 by 1080's --- and have fun! :D

Cropping or Sizing Wallpapers... How do YOU do it?

I would really like to know the answer to this question. All I know is my own experience with sizing & cropping.

When I got my 1920 x1080 computer screen, I started cropping my photos to that size in my SUMO Paint graphic arts program. I have a camera that shoots 4,000 x 3,000 resolution pictures. I enjoy the challenge of selecting the best 1920 x1080 wallpaper out of my photo that I possibly can. Sometimes I do 2 or 3 different crops and then pick the one (or sometimes 2) crops that I like the best.

With my abstract wallpapers it's easy... I just make the canvas that I'm creating on the proper size, and I'm all set.

I've never gotten images from online, however, and that's the main reason I'm asking this question.

I've seen wallpaper resolutions of so many different sizes on Desktop Nexus. I often wonder how DN members decide what size wallpaper to upload. I guess my question is twofold:

1. When you see something on line that you want to upload do you leave the size of it as it is?

2. If you decide to change the size of the image, how do you do it? Do you use a Graphic arts program? A photo editor? Or is there a way to do it without using either of these tools?

I'd love to know!

Elaine , does your camera have different size settings , if so--use the setting that works best for you. I tried using the 1920 x 1080 and I found it to be to small for my screen...you can resize the picture if you use Photo Gallery on your computer...

My answer to your question is probably going to make you wince...because you are so skilled with a camera.

My camera probably does have different size settings, but I can't say for sure, because I lost the manual shortly after I got it! I know I need to try to find and print the manual from online, but I haven't gotten around to it yet... and I've had the camera for nearly 2 years.

What is photo gallery-- an app of some kind?

It is not an app. After you upload picture's to your computer , double click on the album you put them in and right click on the very first picture and scroll down to where it will say : Open with photo gallery , click on photo gallery and you can resize and colour enhance your photo's...give it a try and let me know how you made out...good luck :)

I'll report how I did back on this thread, when I succeed or not succeed.

Well, that didn't take long... I'm back about 15 minutes later with an edit to this post. :D

I just clicked on a picture and opened it with Photo Gallery, like you said. I made it to the Microsoft agreement notice, and read it. I didn't go any further though, because I already can resize and color enhance photos in my SUMO paint program. But thanks to you, I now know of another option for photo editing. :) Thank you! :)


I hope other group members ring in on this also. Would love to know how everybody does it... and maybe some people besides me will learn some different methods also. :D
