Greetings!

I want to start uploading wallpapers once again. To make things easier for me, I would like to just upload one image that is as big as I can possible make it. I'd then be leaving it up to you to crop, zoom, position, flip, and do whatever you have to to make it fit on your intended device. I use tablets, smartphones, laptops, desktops, and other devices every day. In my opinion, this is a very viable approach. Making an image fit is super easy on most modern devices.

What do you think? See the poll.

I'm from the mid-western region of the US. I've been making websites since roughly 1998. It started as a hobby, but it has grown into a profession. I am now a freelance web developer, specializing in front-end development with html, css, javascript, php, Drupal and Wordpress.

I'm pretty good with design, but I consider myself to be a developer who is also an aspiring designer.

To better allow me to put out new wallpapers, how would you feel about me just putting out one image, the biggest I can make, and trusting users to crop/fit/zoom/position it on their own devices?

Around. As busy as ever. Luckily, I have a lot of finished stuff. I just need to package it. That, and it really just feels like flat design trends are taking over. My skeuomorphic wallpapers feel blasphemous somehow. Personally, when it's not in a situation that both calls for it and benefits greatly from it, I'm not a huge fan of flat design.

I agree with you completely about flat design. When I started to learn design back in 2004 there wasn't a whole lot of it around. I mostly was designing divs on Myspace back then like some other people, but that's what led me into web/graphic design. You were and have since been one of my go-to people for learning all I know. It's helped me better understand design and be able to teach myself other things. I've always enjoyed your work and look forward to seeing more of it.

Much thanks. Glad to see the love for this stuff has withstood the test of time. Seeing people from the Myspace-DIV days still coding and designing is always awesome.
