Many people love to show off! Others want to look decent. You belong to which ever group, you will definitely want your iPhone to look beautify and attractive. For this purpose iPad wallpapers are developed. They come in different color and size, so you can easily buy one of your choices.

Some people are okay with whatever iPad wallpapers are available in the market but some people what to give these wallpapers personal touch to make them more interesting and personalized.

Some people prefer to download iPad wallpapers from the internet as there are number of them there. But some use the wallpapers that are built in the iPhones. The first thing is to look at all the options you are available with. Then make you mind about one or two that you like the most.

After you select the right wallpaper, you now start downloading it. You are given three choices for downloading. Download as a full screen, as a widescreen or as an iPad. Click the last option. A 1024*10234 size image gets downloaded on your iPhone screen. You then have to click the option of save image.

After saving the wallpaper, one has to select it as wall paper on the screen. For this purpose, first go to the home screen by pressing the home button. Here when the image option is clicked on, the wallpaper with its name can be found. Select the photo and then select the use option.

Not all people want to have the iPad wallpaper remain the same as they downloaded it. They want to make certain changes in it. The edit feature is provided by software like Photoshop.

With the Photoshop software, no one can limit you except your own creativity. Try the color balance option if you are not satisfied with the colors the image has. The background of the wallpaper can be worked upon or changed altogether. In the same way the option of light effects are used.

If you are having problem in making changes in you wallpaper or you iPhone gives no option of editing, this means you have got an iPhone that has not the software installed. You can get it installed from internet. Photoshop has its trial version which is helpful if used.

iPhone Wallpapers – How to Install Them on Your iPhone Or iPod Touch

Short Version:

You can make any image on your device a wallpaper by selecting it in your photo library, tapping the icon in the bottom left corner and selecting “Use as wallpaper”

To get images into your device you need to set iTunes up to sync with iPhoto or the folder containing your wallpaper images if your not using iPhoto.

Long Version:

What sort of image can you use as a wallpaper? Wallpapers can be obtained in a variety of ways. Any photograph you have stored in the photos app on your device can be used as a wallpaper. You can also download images from a number of places on internet. These have been specially created for use as iPhone wallpapers and are the correct size and aspect ratio and the images are usually composed to fit well within the iPhone format. You can download my specially designed wallpapers here if you wish.

If you are using iPhoto it’s not a bad idea to create a new album to keep your wallpapers in. You can then sync this folder with your device. If you are not using iPhoto, you can keep your wallpapers in a specified folder on your hard drive and sync with that.

Copy the wallpaper images you have downloaded or created to your iPhoto album, designated folder, Photoshop Album or Photoshop Elements. Connect your iPhone or Touch to your computer and open iTunes. In the library column on the left click your device icon. Now click on the Photos tab. Make sure “Sync photos from” is checked then in the pulldown menu either select the folder where you placed your wallpapers or select iPhoto. If you are just syncing selected albums rather than all photos make sure your wallpapers are in an iPhoto album and that it is selected in the list. Press Apply (or sync) and the images in iPhoto or the selected folder will be copied over to your device.

On your iPhone or Touch, navigate to your photos and select the wallpaper you wish to use. You don’t have to use a specially made wallpaper image, you can use any photo you wish. Tap the icon in the lower left hand corner that looks like an arrow jumping out of a box. Sometimes you need to tap the screen once to make the icons visible.?

The menu that follows will contain the option to ‘Use as wallpaper’ On the iPhone you could also assign an image to one of your contacts.

Cell Phone Wallpapers – Do it Yourself

How do you get unique cell phone wallpapers? A little bird told me there were two methods, one is to use the original maps reserved in your cell phone database and be content with all that came with the phone; second is to download wallpapers from the internet. Now I shall introduce an interesting and new way, that’s called “DIY” which means you make cell phone wallpapers by yourself.

Firstly you need to find a great high resolution picture, and then you can use graphical art software to edit the picture. I recommend using the normal graphics software – “Photoshop”. It’s helpful and easy to use. For example, we could select a beautiful digital landscape photograph. Next upload it from your PC, you know, from the location it has been saved as a data file in the hard disk of your desktop. Open this image file in Photoshop to modify it, we now need to edit it to make it perfect according to our own imagination with many graphical designs and styles, sometimes we also use computer-aided design to develop new artistic wallpapers. Make as many changes as you feel like to the photo, more the number of changes, the more splendid the end image will appear. The last procedure is to just upload the modified photo to your cell phone. Now you have the colorful cell phone wallpaper showcasing your own unique design.

How easy it is! But you need to master the graphic arts software; the graphic software is our basic tool for redesigning. To be honest, I am fond of wallpapers, it’s amusing. When you are skilled using these tools, you should start getting creative and start working on a lot of amazing pictures and enjoy the DIY process. Tony, a 12 years old boy, has established special wallpaper’s website which offer thousands of pictures for viewers to download. Last week, he showed me his latest cell phone wallpaper to me, it’s a highlighted portrait of his sister, and it looks like a photographic plate, very strange but smart, with a little carved sense. I did like it and asked him how he created it. He replied “Nothing, just a fault! Actually I failed to finish a key operation of Photoshop.”
