Astronomy Backgrounds for the Zune

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Media" @ 04:00 PM

I was poking around the Hubble space telescope site, grabbed five images, and turned them into 240 x 320 backgrounds for the Zune. Want 'em? Grab the ZIP file.

Grab Some Wallpaper For Your Zune

Posted by Adam Krebs in "Zune Content Creation & Management" @ 08:00 AM

Need a hot new background for your newly 3.0'd Zune? Microsoft is now offering 94—count 'em—ninety-four professionally designed backgrounds for your downloading pleasure, all perfectly sized to your Zune's 3:4 screen proportion, and all come in high-quality 480x640 resolution, perfect for outputting to a TV or just showing off on-the-go (Zune device native resolution is 240x320). While most of these designs have been around since the 2.5 update, there's a whole bunch of new ones Microsoft has thrown in the mix to celebrare the 3.0 launch. Take a look, try them out, and see what works. Remember: You Make it You.

Gorgeous Original Backgrounds from Zunecards

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Articles & Resources" @ 04:00 PM

If you're looking for beautiful, completely original art for your Zune, you should definitely stop by Zunecards. I hadn't heard of this site before today, but it's really slick - their collection of backgrounds is small, but all very high quality. My only complaint is that it took a lot of clicking to download and unzip each of the 16 different backgrounds - I always wish sites like this would offer a single ZIP file with all their downloads, or at least one ZIP file per collection. Regardless, Zunecards is a site you definitely should check out!

More Backgrounds at ZuneArt.com!

Posted by David Tucker in "Zune Talk" @ 07:28 AM

In the spirit of backgrounds this Monday morning, head on over to Zune Art to find a huge selection of Zune backgrounds. The site lists nearly 400 backgrounds already in 19 different categories. If you register you can add your own creations to the directory for other people to download!

I spotted this posted over on Tech Guru's Corner and he particularly liked the 3D Art section. I agree with him. It's definitely my favorite as well. The sports section has some really nice backgrounds too. If any were actually my teams I'd love to have one!

EDITOR'S NOTE: I've removed all the links in this post because we've since learnt that the Tech Guru post was a paid post (the "disclosure" is at the very bottom rather than at the top where it should be), which means he was paid by ZuneArt.com using PayPer Post. We would have gladly linked to ZuneArt.com ourselves because it's a good resource, but instead they opted to use a blogger who whores his "opinions" out for money. We will never link to any site or person that is involved with a service such as this. - Jason Dunn

Great Zune Backgrounds from Slav Mobile

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Sites & Resources" @ 07:00 AM

http://www.slavmobile.com/

One of the really nice things about the Zune having a 320 x 240 resolution screen is that it happens to match up with the screen size of Pocket PCs that have been shipping since April 2000. That means there are dozens of great background/wallpaper sites out there with images for you to use. One such site is SLAV mobile, an easy to use site with (currently) 624 backgrounds that are sized at 320 x 240 for your Zune. And these are really high-quality images as well - check out this one...
