Other pages for this artwork cycle:


Submissions that don't follow these rules will be removed:

  • Copyright: you can't use material without explicit permission or a license that allows editing and redistribution. Always give attribution and follow all license terms.
  • Background images must be attached to this page (no external links for reliability and archival reasons).
  • For reference images, links to external images are acceptable, if you can be reasonably sure they stay in place. You have to use links to external images, if redistribution isn't permitted.
  • Background images on this page must appear in a 300 pixel wide version, followed by a link to the full size version. This gives each single submission roughly the same space for fairness and reduces page load time and the need for scrolling.
  • For references, plain text links with no preview are sufficient and help to keep the page clear.

Images without a stated license can't be considered for packaging and distribution. See our Artwork/Documentation/Licensing.

Filenames should start with the submitters name or nick and have no spaces: callisto_background.png

Take note of our Background Guidelines and Templates

How to add background images the proper way

Create 300 pixel wide versions of your backgrounds. If say, the image is called callisto_background.jpg, call the small one callisto_background_s.jpg.

Click the Attachments link at the top (in the row starting with Edit). On that page, you can upload your images.

Come back here, click "Edit". Add the following code:

== Example Name ==
[[attachment:dummy.png|Full size]]

@ SIG@

=== Comments ===
  1. Then replace Example Name with a title for your image or set of images.

  2. Replace dummy_tn.jpg with the name of a thumbnail. Replace dummy.png with the name of the related full size image. Copy the 2 lines and repeat for additional images.

  3. Remove the space after the @. The resulting @SIG@ will be replaced with your account name and date/time of the edit automatically, as soon as you save the changes.

Koala Bark V2 is a response to the comment i had on V1 that the Ubuntu Logo looked tacked on and the koala's ears need some work. In addition to that i have adjusted the blending and the position of the Ubuntu Logo as well as the blending of the koala. I have also Done a Version of the first version of koala bark but with out the logo. Any suggestions and comments will be greatly appreciated.

  • Nice source image. Good work on color and contrast, but the ears of the koala need work. The bark doesn't have enough resolution. The Ubuntu logo is a bit much and looks tacked on. -- t-w- 2009-05-06 19:57:57
