Default Picture of your Desktop: Narcissu!

Yo! Finally the Ultimate Wallpaper is here!
'What is that' you say? Go 'n check it out!
A little hint: read the topic!

Here's a blurred version for hi-res monitors (ar.: 4:3 or 5:4):

Here's the original version (best viewed on 800*600):

And here's a more blurred version ideal for backgrounding it in some app:

And at last, but not the least, here's your fav avatar (96*96):

The original Author (Tomo Kataoka) for giving us this masterpiece,
Anna Rita Cicoria (from in-design s.a.s.) for cleaning the images using Photoshop and, finally, Stefano Abbadessa (the poster...) for final editing and localized reconstruction of missing parts with MS Paint (rusty old program but still effective!... 'ya know... that pixel thingie...' and 'doh!... it took three days!') and localized addiction of gaussian blur effect with Fireworks.

Enjoy!

800x600 is really too small for a wallpaper. IMO The minimum size should be 1024x768.

30-40% of the world still runs at 800x600. And, more to the point, 800x600 is the size of the source image...

Edit: What means "IMO"?

1. Take the wallpaper;
2. Use a good photo editor (Like IPhoto Plus 4 or anyone who allows reseze the photo);
3. Resize to 1024x768. Simple! :P

And about the wallpaper...
It's a pretty wallpaper [Cute girls... you're talkin' in my language too. :)]
But I don't think that's the "Ultimate Wallpaper"...
Because of this, I've chosen "Yes... a little..."

See ya someday (I think...)

IMO = In My Opinion

Generally, most people prefer not to resize their wallpapers. The image usually gets distorted. Though personally, the amount i resize by, it doesn't distort so much.

Thank you for the answer. :)
I'm Brazilian and I have a few knowledge about some english terms, like "IMO", although I know some "short expressions" and obscene words...

Resize from 800x600 to 1024x768 does almost not cause distortions... If they occur in this resize process, they are almost imperceptible.
Of course, you may get a very few, almost imperceptible, quality loss...

see (?) ya! (!?)

And more importantly (for me) resizing 800x600 to 1600x1200 works perfectly with no loss :)

See? I'm not alone! :P
I lived resizing 640x480 for 800x600 and vice-versa :)

but... 1600x1200!?
Are you sure you're saying?


See (?) ya! (?)

I'll do 800x600 to 1280x1024....occasionally, but it gets rather blurry. Most of the time, i'm downsizing 1600x1200 to 1280x1024

800x600 to 1600x1200....there're bound to be some artifacts somewhere...unless Photoshop's or Paint Shop Pro's "smartsize" has gotten better.

Look at the numbers. 800x600 is exactly half of 1600x1200. So you can just replace every pixel with a square of four pixels, and you get exactly the same picture, indistinguishable from the way it would have been if you'd been running at 800x600.

Whether you scale it in photoshop or let the OS do the scaling, there're never going to be more than 800x600 pixels worth of information there to start with :P

Although speaking of scaling, does anything other than the GIMP do Lanczos yet? It's quite impressive, and can give results that look nicer than cubic~

Irfanview.

Great if you don't wanna fire up PS or hate the Gimp.

Lanzcos ftw.
