iPhone wallpaper collection

After updating my iPhone to 1.1.3 (and jailbreaking it, courtesy of ZiPhone), I decided I was bored of my current iPhone wallpapers—I’ve been using Rob Randtoul’s very nice iPhone wallpaper collection, but felt it was time for something new. So this morning, I spent a bit of time trimming some of my pictures down to iPhone size, and found that the end results looked better than I was anticipating. So I thought I’d share the results, in case anyone wants more variety on their iPhone. Click the image at left for a larger view of the collection, and if you’d like to download the wallpapers, well, here’s the link:

iPhone Wallpapers [1MB]

To use, just add these to your iPhoto library, then sync to your iPhone. I code my iPhone wallpapers with a unique keyword in iPhoto, create a Smart Album based on that keyword, then sync that smart album to the iPhone. Then use the Wallpaper section of the iPhone’s Settings panel to set your wallpaper. (If you have a jailbroken iPhone and you install SummerBoard, you can use your wallpaper as a background behind the iPhone’s actual screen, too, and not just the wake-from-sleep screen.)

Many of these aren’t really suitable as wallpaper (especially in SummerBoard mode), but some actually work out pretty well.

  1. Using customized wall papers can give your iphone personalized look and feel. Thanks for these amazing wallpapers. With this iphone compatible wallpapers I don’t need to crop my wallpapers to make them fit into it.

  2. Is ziPhone really the best method for jailbreaking etc? I read it irreversibly downgrades the baseband or something (always get those two similar sounding bits mixed up) and that iNdependence is safer?
