Here's a couple of useful thing I've made to simplify making playbook wallpaper.
One of the best thing I've found to edit images is an icon editor it allows you to
crop , stretch make color changes and so on.
I use Greenfish Icon Editor Pro, it's free and a very powerful editor.
I found when making playbook wallpaper it was driving me nuts tweaking the picture
location then copying to playbook and setting as wallpaper to see how it looked, very
So I made a couple of templates to simplify the task, Landscap.png and Portrat.png
if you open your picture you'd like to edit and then open these two files as well you can
switch between tabs and overlay one of the templates to see how your layout looks.
Example: open PictureIwanttoedit.jpg, Landscap.png and Portrat.png.
Edit: PictureIwanttoedit.jpg when you think your close go to portrait tab in icon
editor "select all" and "copy", go back to your picture tab and "past", you can jog around
Portrat.png to see how it will look and if you need more tweaking.
when your done just use "Ctrl Z" to undo the past and any jogging around you did
and you can continue editing.
I've included Landscap.jpg and Portrat.jpg so you can try them as wallpaper to see what
"Use top of lines for reference" means.
Greenfish Icon Editor: to change picture size, crop, stretch go to Icon->Page properties.
The crop feature also enlarges your image and you can specify what edges you want left
Remember to save your work in increments as you go, nothing worse than an O SH*T
moment and realizing you need to go back to the first, I usually have about 10 to 14
saved by the time I'm done. (i.e. 01.jpg, 02.jpg, 03.jpg, 04.jpg)
I hope this is helpful.
