Hey digitalfreedom64

It's nice to see a different look to the wallpaper.

However, what that reminds me of is an image from a camera taken at very high ISO speeds with noise reduction not doing a very good job with Chroma Noise.

For example, look at the very first patch on this page:

http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutori ... oise-2.htm

That type of noise is particular ugly in images, and this wallpaper instantly reminded me of it. It also reminded me of how some noise reduction can be inefficient (resulting in "blotchy" type grain, versus finer grain).

The softness of the logo also reminded me of how a camera's noise reduction can smooth detail.

Again, perhaps it's just because I look at images from a variety of cameras all day long. But, that wallpaper immediately reminds me of a camera that's doing a terrible job at taking photos at higher ISO speeds, with inefficient noise reduction leading to blotchy chroma noise in the images.

So, I'd sure appreciate it if you figured out a way to make it look smooth (or at least fine grained) versus blotchy.


What you are seeing is most likely a result of on of the Gmic effects (spread noise) that I used to make the base image.

The red or ruby shades give the wallpaper a very elegant look. I also like the lettering. This would make a very nice splash screen, although it's a little too dark for wallpaper use.

I like dark wallpapers. I know I am in a minority.

I share your like for the dark wallpapers. I like ice-blue conky info to stand out on the background. Minimalism with just a touch of pizazz. :happy:

I'm in there with you buddy. I'm just not a fan of bright wallpapers. I'm also working on a blue version of this as well.

I am sure you will do a better job with the hue.

I like dark wallpaper because it allows my monitor to dim when no windows are open. I actually had to darken this one for that to work.

re: blotchy/grainy. I thought that was a deliberate effect. Good, too.

I wondered if anyone realized that it was actually meant to look that way. :happy:

So Crimson's blue sibling is progressing nicely. If all goes well Deep Blue will be making its appearance either tomorrow or Thursday. Deep Blue will have the logo in the bottom right corner instead of right in the middle. Deep Blue like Crimson is being released across three distros so I'm waiting until I have all three completed to put them out there so please bare with me. Thanks. :D

Umm.. could you make one by the side where it is right in the middle? I really like the fact that it is..


Thanks for the good work!
