Subject description: Design your own wet wallpaper
 

Here's a site where you can create your own wet wallpaper for your Puppy. Using Highslide's JS gallery viewer, you can "drag n' drop" numbers and icons on to a work area and use your screen capture utility to make your own personal puppy wallpaper. No shortage of numbers or icons (including most puplets). Just click, drag and shoot. (sorry, only available in basic black)

01/01 Update: the individual alphabet has been added.
Letters and reflections are separate for more possibilities of layout location.

Below is an example of something that can be made:

trapster:
I'll be squeezing in an alphabet later this week, since it was requested. Just have to do some redesigning so you don't have to drag across 2 pages.


Code:
Lobster:
I grabbed the 2 graphics, and will be adding icons for those this week, too.


I also need an idea of what to use for "Rudy" (already tried a screenshot from the movie, but it just plain sucked) and "Teen"....and any other icons for Puppy OS's that I missed, chime in, and I'll get around to them.

This is what I use for Teen now:

For creating this, you get my official Seal of Coolness

http://www.says-it.com/seal/

EDIT: Now I think about it, you could actually use that site to create graphics for this. ...cool.

After assembling your picture, take a "snapshot" of your screen with mtPaint screen capture
( on 2.01, it's on the main menu bar under "Graphic Processing").



If you list which version of Puppy you're using,
I'm sure someone that's familiar with that model will be able to help you out.

Que?
put a highlight image around the bit you want and press delete (mtpaint)
the image should go in puppyreference/backgrounds
Use the stretch option in the desktop changer

Thanks for all the complements, everyone.
Now for the other logo additions (I'll be working on):
NOP, GRAF, LITE, MINI, SIMPLE, TMXXINE, RUS and an alphabet.

12-31 Update: Added: NOP, GRAF, LITE, SIMPLE, MINI, TMX, RUS,
DINGO, SAFE, BETA, PUPPYX, RUDY, X, slash, dash.

Did you mean the white background?
Nope. That's why I went with 'black'. Hides a lot of defects. Plus it's so slimming, lol.
A real BIG X?
Yep. I'll throw that in with the alphabet.
A program like that?
No way. I barely know my way around javascript, never mind compiling.

Thanks. I'd forgotten about that site. May incorporate some logos from that site later.

A few 'real' Web2.0 wet icon sites are on the web, if you don't want to wait
for something to get created (or if you want a white background):

Subject description: Text Is Blurry
 

I added some text to the desktop ("Connie's Puppy"), but it came out blurry, no matter what size or type font I used. Is that a general experience, and is there a solution?

I assume you're stretching the pic with the 'desktop image manager'.
Idea Another way to set the background is first use:
Desktop Solid Color Manager
for black, slide 'value' all the way to the left, select OK.
Now use the Desktop Image Manager, and select your pic, this time
choose 'center'.

The image will be smaller, but won't distort.

(black background w/ centered pic)

Idea If you're looking to 'blow the pic up',
use mtPaint,
select 'image' on the toolbar,
then 'scale canvas'.
Input one dimension (it will figure out the other)
Click OK.
Now add your text, and it won't blur out on you.

Or, you might just want to wait till the alphabet is finished (be a while).
Hope this helps you out. Very Happy
