Flow Wallpaper

It's time for some fresh, dynamic colors for your desktop. So check out my brand new wallpaper "Flow", inspired by the default PS3 background as well as by the icons of Adobe's Creative Suite: To be precise, by the icons of Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator.

Resolutions

“Flow” comes in two variants: a single display one with a resolution of 2560x1600px and a dual screen one with a resolution of 2x1920x1200px. Hope you enjoy :)

Download Flow Wallpaper

Leopard

By the way those of you, who have already upgraded to Leopard and don’t like the semitransparent menu bar or the new Dock, might particularly be interested in this one: Because of the black background at the very top and bottom you have a more or less opaque looking menu bar and the highest possible contrast for the dock. Thus you can easily spot which apps are currently running and which not.

Update

I just added a bunch of iPhone/iPod touch compatible variants to the package. Enjoy :)

Wolfgang, consider adding rel="nofollow" to your links as quite a bit of spammers put comments× on your blog. "aforyzmy", "krutynia", "sp?ywy", "kajakowe" etc. These are Polish travel websites.
