No. Errr, it depends on the screen ;) .

My 13" MacBook Pro is 1280x800, my iMac is 1920x1200, my cinema display is 1680x1050. As for the new MacBook Pros they are 2880x1800 for the retina displays, 1280x800 (13") and 1440x900 (15") for the non-retinas. So maybe a 1280x800 and a high resolution version would be enough?


OK, but all we need is the biggest screen sizes in 4x3 and 16x9.
People who have a lower resolution screen can still put the pic on. It will downscale automatically, right?

My understanding is yes; hence we use this as a trial run.

Please see attached 16.9 ratio and 4.3 ratio calender desktop pages. Feel free to download and experiment.

(Note there seems to be a bit of a problem with downloading, bear with me...)

The Mac screens I listed above are all 8x5 so 16x9 doesn't need much squashing vertically to fit. 2880x1800 would cover them all. You can scale, tile or crop to fit if it is the wrong size.

The julywide.jpg looks OK on my desktop apart from the calendar being covered by a bunch of files.
What pays stays.

Sorry John that those didn't satisfy your MAC, perhaps these will? ;)

We have the MAC's vote :) Now what does everyone else think? This is very much the experimental phase, so let's throw in as much feedback so it can get better. Not a bad day's graft...

To complicate things a bit: what about people with two screens?

Just have the Mac image on the left, the Pc on the right. Unless of course, you are wanting to submit one of your high res pano images into the judging Jochen?

LOL

I don't think that would help lots of people. But I do intend to load a regular pic tomorrow!

I have two screens but keep the screen saver different on both. But I could put the same image on each screen if I wanted, not across the two.

… clarity in thought comes after challenge …

Ok, here's one. You will either love it or hate it.
I sharpened it for 2880x1920 displays, so for smaller displays it may look dull.
