Pipeburn Wallpapers

Posted on October 30, 2010 by Andrew in Other. 8 comments

Ever since we featured Jed’s Harley here on Pipeburn we’ve had quite a few requests from you guys via email. Some were asking specific questions about how Jed built the bike. Others were inquiring about Jed’s hand in marriage; some of them were even from women. But a large majority were asking for larger images of the bike to decorate their desktops with. Well, ask and ye shall freakin’ receive.

After much sweating over a hot Apple, I’d like to unveil the inaugural set of official Pipeburn Wallapers. That’s right, I said set. Big, glossy, mega-pixel beauties of not only the Harley, but also the bikes from the first and second Imaginary Garage posts. All here for your downloading plee-zure.

Beneath the previews you’ll find links to four different-sized wallpapers of that image, hopefully one of them will suit yr screen res. Then click to view the full-sized version, save the image to your desktop (right-click on a PC, control-click on a Mac) and Bob’s yr mother’s lover… you’ve got yourself the best-looking wallpaper in all of motorbikedom.

    Nice wallpapers! Now can we please have them in a modern resolution? IE, 1680×1050, 1920×1080, 1920×1200..

    @Emaychee Those four resolutions cover over 60% of the interweb world's resolutions. The ones you mention are way down the list. Check here for more:

    But don't get me wrong; I want to give you guys what you want. If any of you give me ONE resolution, the design you prefer, and your email address I'll knock you up a bespoke design, tailored especially to your own personal needs.


  • Full HD res would be a nice addition. Because you always can go down without loss quality*. So people with other setups (not you, bastards** wit 4 linked full HD screens) would be happy. Damn I even have a old working laptop with a 800×600 screen XD XD

    * Deppend of the format and program used. I.e.: jpg has losses.
    ** Is bastards allowed?

    Thanks alot. And if a resolution does not fill my screen completely, i just put a frame around it, in a matching or contrasting color…depends on picture and mood.

    @kumo Yeah, that's a real solid idea. OK, I'll bang out three 1920×1080 res ones tonight and add them to the options.

    Also, I just had a thought. A lot of my photos are shot in portrait, which doesn't make them any good for computer wallpapers. But I just realised that it DOES make them good for smartphone wallpapers. So the next round of wallpapers will be for all you hipsters with expensive iPhones. Just like me…

  • Nice idea with portrait shots for mobile devices, dude. Although resolutions for those screens are a mess. Range is maybe between 240×320 and 480×640.

    Thank-you for the additions – I agree that the mobile wallpapers are an awesome idea. As a design student you have appeased my inner quarrels!
