    How to attach a file to this thread
    There should be an icon that looks like a photo, click that and a prompt should come up. If you can't find it, hover your cursor around the tool, i.e. the one you used to create the post on the PC, and look around.

    (Note to the text below: I went to my laptop to attach the pictures.)

    I wonder how a picture is attached to this message sent from my Lumia 920.
    Anyway I have created a glance picture from one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. One of the seven wonder's, namely the Opera House in Sydney. I love that building and the story about it's construction. A nightmare.
    I found the picture on the Internet, changed the color picture to greytone and did the last manipulation in the glance background application.
    I love the result.
    Now I want to attach pictures, but haven't found the way yet.

    Because I'm a huge Pokmon fan (an addict, to be honest) and my favourite of all time is Weavile (and the pre-evo Sneasel), I decided to keep him on my Glance Background. People would be like: uhuuu how do you have an image+clock without pressing the power button? AND ask me what creature/character was that with the appearance of an evil cat.

    It's a win-win for me, no matter what.

    I used the slider at,1/4 and colour: multi-color.
    *or should I call it neutral/rainbow? :P

    Here is said image: (edit) ok what the... IE on my Windows Phone was not working well with this forum's editor so it moved to top (and keyboard kept auto-closing o.O). Anyways sorry for the huge image, guys, I didn't look at the dimensions and thought it was smaller :/

    Tap on "insert image" that would do the trick.

    So as I said, I'd try to make a vector image of this of so you can have a decent image on your phone (that and I really like this picture - it's cute). I haven't finished yet but this what I have so far...


    The shading is really tough... I'll upload when I'm finished so all of you can glance away.

    This pixel art I created a while ago works quite nicely as a glance background:

    I really wouldn't like to put a full color picture on my glance screen because its meant to be a low power screen.

    I've been playing around with a lot of different backgrounds to see which look best. So far it's pretty clear that solid vector images work the best, but some other slightly more complex images like ones with a "painted" look and 16bit graphics seem to work fairly well to.

    The original images I used can be found here: (there are also some other images in there that I don't think work well, but others are free to try)

    Most all of them are using full color with the number 2 setting to make them darker/richer. There are a very few that use the number 1 unmodified setting, like the Bioshock Infinite Burial at Sea image, and others that I have examples both settings 1 and 2.

    For the most part it's up to personal preference, but setting 2 does help overcome the washed out effect that happens because of low brightness/limited detail used (at least on OLED). Often the number 2 setting might look too dark/saturated inside the app but actually equalizes out well in actual glance mode.

    P.S. I do have to say, given how bad I've seen burn in with OLED screens... I'm actually somewhat terrified to leave my glance screen on all the time with these backgrounds. Even with it rotating through 4 images and at a fairly low brightness... as neat as that is.. it's not worth having those images burnt in and ghosting over everything I do a few months from now. :(

    Here are the first 15:

    I have some very beautiful Diablo 3 paintings done of each of the classes/characters; unfortunately most of them don't come out well because they are too detailed.


    And finally, the obligatory "Fake Young Joe Belfiore" photo, a must for the die hard fans. ;)
