Hi all,
We talked about this before, but I'm still interested in the topic.

I was thinking about Uru, as I was playing Acid Free Cell on my Palm TX (Aside, now that I switched to a smartphone I don't carry it around anymore). The background I used for Acid Free Cell is a screenshot of my avatar in the cleft in Uru, the very first screenshot I took in the game. When I get my new smartphone (thinking about the Motorola Droid) -- I'm going to see if I can us and Uru seen ad the background wallpaper.

Are there any interesting ways you continue to use Uru images - personal use only!

I guess I just collect them, probably because of the nostalgia that can come with old screenshots :) Of course remastering the screenshots in Photoshop is also fun. (Still waiting for CS4 to arrive this Saturday -_-")

We use an image of the Bevin on the screen background for our live chat over at MystOnline Info chat so we get to watch the Bevin while we chat and keep in touch. It is a nice way to feel like being part of it, while being away. We have alternative screens that can be shared. So many of the places in the Cavern are so familar to so many of us, it means a lot to think someday we may indeed be able to return. Nice idea for a thread mszv.

I use the windmill from the original Myst game as the background on my iPod Touch. I also use a scene from Channelwood on my Twitter page background. I've thought about changing that to an URU picture and might just do that.

I also have that web site thing. You know. 8)

I've had the K'veer window as my desktop background since before the cavern closed.

I used an image from a party in the Guild of Greeters neighborhood for my desktop at work. It got some nice comments from co-workers. :)

I tried using my old Myst screenshot directory for a Screen Saver set of pictures on my new Windows 7 computer with 24" widescreen monitor/HDTV. The pictures were very small, being only 640 x 480 (I think). I need to retake the pictures using Real Myst to see if they can be a bit higher resolution.

I just love being able to use the highest resolution in Uru.

I did have a picture of the Gira Falls in my last cellphone as a wallpaper. I just used a similar picture in my HTD Hero (Android) phone. This phone comes with a 5 megapixel camera. That's better than the digital camera we've had for five years!

Wow, good ideas!

I used to use screenshots of Uru for my desktop and laptop wallpapers -- maybe I'll switch back.

Nice idea on using Myst screenshots as cell phone wallpaper, since you can't have them go across the big screens you get nowadays. I'm also going to remember using a screenshot of Gira falls for smartphone wallpaper. For big screens, I can work around a wallpaper image that is dark and crowded, but for a smartphone wallpaper, I generally like something that is brighter and not so crowded, so I can see the icons.
