    Default A few custom backgrounds for the Nook (Updated 2x)

    I've just posted a zip file with a few backgrounds designed for the 600x800 screen of the Nook.

    One specifically says Merry Christmas for those of you who are giving the Nook as a gift and might want to preload the image.


    I've updated pack 2 to remove black side borders due to difference in resolution from screensaver to backgrounds
    I just did a pack of 20 new images. Each of these are already set to 16 shades of grey, which I understand is what e-ink displays.

    Enjoy! This will probably be all I'll do until the first of the year (after I can start playing with my Nook) and I will probably concentrate on screensaver themes for my next batch.

    OOps - my blog software wasn't showing the download unless you were authenticated in the blog. That's been fixed now - you should get the link to the zip for download.

    Glad you enjoyed it. Now that I know what I'm doing, I'm working on several more and will release a second pack later.

    I love them, especially the bubbles! Keep them coming. Stupid question - can you load more than one screensaver so you get a different one every time?

    From what I've seen you put multiple images into a subfolder inside your screensavers folder on the Nook internal memory. It then randomly cycles between those images when you pick that folder.

    So, if you put all of the images of ships from my pack into a folder called "Ships" you'll get an option for a screensaver called "Ships" and when you've chosen it, it will rotate between each of the images in that folder.

    If you wanted them all as a single screensaver you could even do that.
