New Wallpaper: Deep Blue Mepis Edition

#1 Postby digitalfreedom64 » Thu Dec 29, 2011 10:58 pm

As promised... Deep Blue Mepis Edition is live and comes in two versions. One with the centered logo and text Like Crimson and one for the right corner crowd. Enjoy! :happy:

Also I don't currently have a Mepis installation so I wasn't sure about the spacing of the logo on the corner version. I hope I got it far enough from the bottom edge of the image. If not please let me know and I'll give it another shot. Thanks.

Imagine that, I actually like the original red better, and that coming from a preferring blue girl :laugh:

Good job, and thanks!!

Yea, I actually had the same though when I finished this one. I don't know why, I've just always been a fan of red and black.

Maybe the red is a finer grit or something, at least that is the idea I had.

Can't quite put the finger on it.

In any case, thanks! :smile:

Yup. It works better in red.

- Sorry, the discordant voice: I do prefer the blue version. (My car is red, now I'm wearing a red sweater, my ideas are reddish...).
But my MEPIS desktop always have been "deep blue".

I agree with eselma, changing colors isn't easy. Mepis has always been blue on my desktop, feels like something else if I try any other color.
And if you use the Gimp filters to color a red wallpaper blue, the result is grainy. You have to get rid of the red color first and add a blue layer beneath.

I am constantly changing desktop colors. Mepis is not Mepis because the desktop is blue.

Very true, I meant it feels like home with blue. Not from a technical point of view.

I do agree. Personally I do like blue but like to experiment with other colors.

Regarding the Gimp comment. What I did was convert to gray and then color blue when I made the attempt. is that what you meant? The wallpaper was designed to be grainy.
