    Interesting, looks nice maybe you should make it into an app that does it automatically?

    A bit too much blur, otherwise it looks like a L920 daylight picture.

    Weather Wallpaper, works pretty well. Very responsive developer as well, recommended.

    Edit: by the way, that means that you would set the background image from within Weather Wallpaper to get what I have here.

    Remind me somewhat of the transparency feature we use to use in 7.5.

    Extra points for replacing your People Hub tile in the photo editor with an incredibly hot person with their shirt off, and then making sure you blur that tile so you can _just_ make out what it is. Should go over well if your partner ever picks up your phone :)

    Awesome, I was hoping that people would start posting their own creations. Very cool. I tried 'zoom blur' earlier, but that got me dizzy.. Next up: the 'Van Gogh' filter!

    I really like the look of this effect, but the one thing that bothers me is when you swipe up your start screen also looks like it's sliding up since it is part of the wallpaper. If it were possible to truly make the lockscreen opaque then I would never use a regular wallpaper ever again.

    Photoshop CS6. Filters>Extrude, 60 depth. Added a dark gradient ramp to the bottom to make the time text more legible.

    Oh man, that is awesome. I like that better than what I did, but i don't think I can afford CS6 (must.. resist.. torrenting..). Great work!

    I know what you mean, every time I unlock my phone I'm disappointed that the live tiles don't smoothly come into focus. MS will have to hop on the 'mangled lock screen' train and build it into WP8.5.

    Thanks - it's one of the more interesting filters I've seen in awhile.

    You can get the 30-day trial and at least make wallpapers for the next 30 days ;)

    I can't imagine it being too difficult for MS to implement if they wanted to. Back when I had an iPhone, I used a jailbreak tweak called BlurriedNCBackground which does exactly this with the iOS notification centre. Here's a video showing it.

    I'm loving this thread, very cool result. Is this Photoshop as well? Would be nice if you showed the result 'in action' (with the date and time overlayed) so you can see how legible things are. Looks like it would work well for this one.

    Sorry about that - I uploaded the wrong picture. Here's the one "in action" I should have done:

    I just did the effect through the Thumba Photo Editor App on my phone. There are loads of different filters in it.
