I just got a new skin for my K3, a Gelaskins this time, and so I was wondering if someone could please please please make the matching/completing screen saver to go with it for me?  ;D

Oh wow, thank you so much NogDog, as ever to the rescue!!!! And that was fast! And pretty much spot on  ;D



What do you think? Thank you so so much!!!!!!!!  :-*

ETA: looking some more at it, on the left side, I'm wondering if it shouldn't be a hair higher and more to the left (the corner of the eye seems a bit too long and a tad too low, no?), but then it doesn't seem to work for the shoulder on the right  ??? What do you think NogDog? I'm a bit OCD, unfortunately, but can totally live with it the way it's now, lol  :D

Neo, try refreshing this page (or just that image) and then see if it's any better. (Keep a back-up of the first attempt, in case this one is worse. ;) )

Thank you NogDog, for indulging my (not so) inner OCD!!!  :-*

I think it's actually better with the new version, maybe just a hair higher? But again, could totally live with this one too, lol! And the arm is actually much better aligned now  ;D

We may have reached the point of diminishing returns, where the odds are that any further attempts by me will be worse. ;)

Hi! This thread is amazing! I spent all day looking at screensavers!!
Could someone help me with my screensaver? It is for the Decal Girl's almond blossom skin.
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51JCN1PPT5L.jpg
I can't get it right for some reason :-[

And also the Amazon kindle screen? Could someone make one that says Magda's Kindle? Or point me to a website that explains how to do it? :)
Thank you!

I took a look at the Almond Blossom skin, but could not find a complete enough image to make something that would fit (or at least it would have taken a lot of fiddly work cutting and pasting pieces from multiple images, blending them, etc. -- and still not necessarily being right  ::) ).

"Kron" is the one who's been making those, I believe. However, you can get something sort of similar at my image customizer web page, selecting an image and then entering your first name on the next page. :)

That is awesome NogDog! I am working up the courage to actually put the screensaver hack on my kindle.

I've found some great screensavers here!

Can someone please post the library skin image for a K2?  It was on here previously but the image was removed in PhotoBucket.  Thanks.

I would love to have screensavers of my own wife, but when I convert them to black and white, they still don't look right.
You know... those rows of different shades..
Help!!! I have endless pics of her on my flickr site. If anyone could help me out, please do...

Since the Kindle screen only displays 16 shades of gray, you may want to first convert it to a 16-gray-shade palette image using dithering, and then convert it to a standard gray-scale image before saving it finally as a PNG image. (If you leave it as a 16-color palette PNG [instead of grayscale], the Kindle does not handle it well, tending to be much too dark.) That will help to blend the edges of those similar shades.

PS: I added a new blog article to detail how to apply dithering if using the GIMP image editor.

Yeah, sorry about that. When I organized my screen savers, all the links broke. The image you're looking for is in my DecalGirl folder:
