Here are four more wallpapers to download, only one holiday inspired one this time though. I think it looks like gift wrap. These wallpapers were created with Apophysis and Sterling in five different sizes 1920x1080, 1024x768, 482x272, 320x480, and 240x320 (If you would like wallpapers in a size other than those three, please leave a comment and let me know). So click on the image to be taken to the gallery page for that image or you can just go directly to the Free Wallpaper Gallery main page. Please feel free to use these wallpapers on your desktop for the PC, Mac, PS3, Xbox 360, Sony PSP, etc. All images are in JPEG format and the files sizes are 800k or less.

Newest Batch of Wallpapers

As promised, here are four new wallpapers. Notice that two of the images are Christmas colors, I will attempt to release a couple of holiday inspired wallpapers each time I post new ones through Christmas. I already have more in the works and should be able to post new ones in the next few days or so. The Halo 3 wallpapers I mentioned in my last post are done but I am hesitant to post them due to copyright infringement issues, I will spend some time on Bungie.net checking out the rules for sharing screens. These wallpapers were created with Apophysis in five different sizes 1920x1080, 1024x768, 482x272, 320x480, and 240x320 (If you would like wallpapers in a size other than those three, please leave a comment and let me know). So click on the image to be taken to the gallery page for that image or you can just go directly to the Free Wallpaper Gallery main page. Please feel free to use these wallpapers on your desktop for the PC, Mac, PS3, Xbox 360, Sony PSP, etc. All images are in JPEG format and the files sizes are 800k or less.

New Stuff Coming

What a busy month November has turned out to be. I had computer problems stacked on top of a few time consuming work projects and my time for working on anything for this site went down the drain. Now, it seems Google is having problems with it's server, I recently purchased the GrandGravey.com domain to point to this site. It worked fine for awhile but now the Google servers keep returning a 502 error keeping anyone from seeing the site.

Anyhow, more screens are in the works, I have 4 screens from Halo 3 to put up in the next day or so and I have a decent list of new Fractals to be rendered. I hope to get something posted by this weekend and be able to post on a more normal schedule than once or twice a month. As with all things in my life right now, that all depends on the amount of free time I can make for this hobby blog.

I also have new things in the works for this site but I am reluctant to mention those things specifically until I know I have the time to make them happen. So for now I will just tease you by telling you you have to wait and see. Christmas is coming up and I had hoped to have some custom Christmas Cards for you to enjoy about now but it does not seem that will materialize this year.

Please be patient with me, I will get everything worked out and new content posted real soon.

Fresh Batch of Wallpapers

I finally finished another batch of wallpapers. These wallpapers were rendered in either Apophysis or Sterling fractal software. Starting now I will be offering each set of wallpapers in five different sizes 1920x1080, 1024x768, 482x272, 320x480, and 240x320 (If you would like wallpapers in a size other than those three, please leave a comment and let me know).

Migrating Wallpaper Galleries

ImageReward.com has been down for a few days so I am jumping ship. I have been evaluating new image hosts for the past couple of days and have decided to use ImageShack.com for the Widescreen Wallpaper Gallery and Photobucket.com for the PSP Wallpaper Gallery. I have all the widescreen images uploaded and most of the PSP images uploaded, though I am still going through files to make sure for the PSP gallery. The reason for not using just one or the other host is because neither one fullfils my needs. Photobucket only allows images up to 1024x768 for free accounts (the widescreens are 1920x1080) and ImageShack does not have subfolders so I can't create different galleries. So, for now, the galleries will be on seperate sites. Lord Matt asked why I do not use FlickR.com, the reason is because FlickR is a photo site and in their TOS they state:
Don’t use your account to host web graphics like logos and banners.
Your account will be terminated if we find you using it to host graphic elements of web page designs, icons, smilies, buddy icons, forum avatars, badges, and other non-photographic elements on external web sites.
So, since the wallpapers are non-photographic fractal rendors (mostly) and wallpapers could be determined to be web graphics, I won't use FlickR for this. Anyhow, this post is starting to stretch long so, check out the new galleries. I will do my best to get all the images in the past posts updated to the new links in the next few days.

My Wallpaper Host Is Down

It seems my image host is down. Since it is a free service I have no idea how long it will be until it gets restored. If the host is no back up in a few hours I will begin migrating the wallpaper to a new host site and posting links. Please accept my apologizes for this inconvenience, it is beyond my control.

Latest Batch of Widescreen Wallpapers

Well, I finally put together another batch of wide screen wallpapers for use on a PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PS3, or anything else you might want to use them for. I know most of these posts are pretty much the same, I just don't really have much extra to say about these wide screen wallpapers. I believe they speak for themselves. These wallpapers were created with Apophysis and Sterling in five different sizes 1920x1080, 1024x768, 482x272, 320x480, and 240x320 (If you would like wallpapers in a size other than those three, please leave a comment and let me know). So click on the image to be taken to the gallery page for that image or you can just go directly to the Free Wallpaper Gallery main page. Please feel free to use these wallpapers on your desktop for the PC, Mac, PS3, Xbox 360, Sony PSP, etc. All images are in JPEG format and the files sizes are 800k or less. Enjoy!

1920 x 1080 wide screen wallpaper 1920 x 1080 PC wallpaper

New Batch of Widescreen Wallpapers

Sony's GAP community had a PS3 wallpaper contest. I made a few wallpapers to enter in the contest and then found out I could only enter one. So my loss is your gain, as they say. These wallpapers were created with Apophysis in five different sizes 1920x1080, 1024x768, 482x272, 320x480, and 240x320 (If you would like wallpapers in a size other than those three, please leave a comment and let me know).

Free Widscreen Wallpapers

This is the first upload of wallpapers in a widescreen format for the PC, the PS3, the Xbox 360, or any other use you have for a widescreen image. These images are sized at 1920 x 1080, which is a good size for 16:9 televisions I believe. I do not know if I will upload the wide screen wallpapers weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, it all depends on my time. I will try to release four widescreen wallpapers at a time all with a similar theme or coloration, that way they will somewhat match for the Xbox 360s four customizable background screens. To help better differentiate between PSP wallpaper and Widescreen wallpaper posts, the wide screen posts have larger thumbnails. Click on any image to be taken directly to that images download page or check out my Widescreen Wallpaper Gallery. Enjoy!

The Future of Grand Gravey

You may have noticed, in the past month or so I have not posted anything other than new wallpapers. The reason for this is simple. I have been extremely busy with Life. I do not have the time right now to keep up with gaming or technology news the way that I want and I definitely do not have the time to post about any of it. So, until further notice I will be using the blog mainly for releasing new wallpapers as I upload them to my galleries. I will post other things from time to time but nothing with any regularity. So, please come and check out the new wallpapers, I will keep posting those weekly, in fact, the very next post will have Widescreen Wallpapers for use on the PC, the PS3 or the Xbox 360.

*EDIT: The uploader on my image host is not working tonight. I will post the widescreen wallpapers tomorrow.

This Weeks PSP Wallpapers - 8/30/07

I have a new crop of five Fractal PSP Wallpapers for you to enjoy. This weeks wallpapers for the Sony PSP were rendered in Apophysis and are sized at 482 x 272 at 96 dpi, this crop has file sizes below 50k per image. I am going to continue adding wallpapers weekly but the day will no longer be only on Tuesdays. My schedule being the way it is, I will upload as I can but at least once per week. I am also going to begin uploading widescreen Wallpapers weekly that can be used for the PC, PS3, or the Xbox 360. (Next post.) Click on any image to be taken directly to that images download page or check out my PSP Wallpaper Gallery. Enjoy!

EDIT: I have a new wallpaper gallery at http://gallery.grandgravey.com
