    So far, I haven't seen this topic here so I thought I start it, so we could share our wallpapers that we use.

    Anyways, post the wallpaper you are using on your windows phone.

    My current one:

    Current wallpaper


    I had this one for the first week that I had my phone.


    I have my own version of this wallpaper as the background for "Pictures" and it serves as decoration for my home screen.

    where did you find your current wallpaper?? it's quite ravishing. I would definitely like something like that, but I don't wanna steal yours specifically.

    the Lost one is pretty nifty too.

    Heh, this is a picture I took over 10 years ago and eventually scanned. It's my default wallpaper on just about anything. PM me if you want a higher res version.

    My current wallpaper is a poster ("Walt's Kidnapping") that was part of a series commissioned for the last season of Lost. I actually have a framed print of this one, along with several others but the painterly effect of this one makes it my favorite. The artist is Drew Millward - here's his official website and here's some more of his posters.

    Right now I'm using this one:


    SpaceInvaders //4 by Maxwellito*, on Flickr



    electricbopeep - Is there a way to set the background used by the pictures hub, or is that just randomly selected? What's the logic WP7 uses for selecting that?

    hold your finger on the background of the picture hub to change the background manually or have the OS do it for you

    All look great but I like the Tron Wallpaper (but my wife would kill me) and the American Flag (classy) the best.

    Used to be my dog, then I swapped it after seeing Tangled. I'm a sucker for pets and Disney.

    Slick. I went with this one because it reminded me of Tool.

    As red grenadine said, just tap and hold (it's the equivalent of right-clicking throughout the OS). I don't know what logic WP7 uses to select it. I'm glad it's user-customizable but I wish they allowed you to zoom out when cropping the picture. I changed my Pictures background yesterday and it appears fine in "Pictures" but the top is chopped off on the start screen tile.
