Nexus One Wallpaper Toolkit

nexus_one_wallpaper_toolkit_010

I’ve looked around the web for the correct size of the wallpaper and a way to control what content is visible on a specific home screen. In fact the wallpaper is not scrolled 480 pixels when you change homescreen. After various experiments I’ve come up with a photoshop file where the guides are ready for you to design your own wallpaper for your nexus one. It’s for for you to download. Enjoy.

Center Home Screen Nexus One
One right Home Screen Nexus One
One left Home Screen Nexus One
Two left Home Screen Nexus One
Two right Home Screen Nexus One

BTW: After I’ve done all the experimenting I’ve seen that simple math would have resolved it earlier. The whole wallpaper is 960 pixels wide and dividing it by 8 it gives you 120 pixel. This is the exact amount the Nexus One slides the background when you change homescreen.

    This looks dead handy. Now for some custom wallpapers. Thanks a lot!

    Well, nice of derFrankie to do this, but… for me it doesn´t work.
    What about the hight for example?
    Although my dimensions are right (960×800) it seems that on my Nexus the wallpaper is kinda “zoomed in”, both in width and height.
    I checked this by simply constructing a wallpaper with a 1 pixel wide border, wich is not visible, so…?

    • Thank you for your feedback. Do you really notice the 1 pixel zoom in? Or is it zoomed in much more. I personally made a 5 pixel grid to find out about the screen widths and didn’t notice this shift. Are you using the standard home screen and do you zoom to the complete image when you select the wallpaper?
