    Here are some of the images I tend to cycle through lately. I had only one for a while and never changed it, until I found these.

    Try a nice medium to dark blue ocean ripple scene - it gives the start screen the correct shade of blue. I enlarge the water between the two cliffs in the stock wallpapers. Looks great !

    I think soft natural images look best behind the tiles. Computer generated art reminds me too much of Android.

    Soft works but for my tastes, 3D geometrics do it. When the icons slide over, its like you can see some levels deep. I never used this with android so if I were you, I wouldn't use them.

    I tried a pic of open sea water...I did like this.
    Have to say I am a fan of hard edged techy type backgrounds.

    Some of the backgrounds do tend to overwhelm the screen.
    I may just start going minimalist so I can enjoy the homescreen backgrounds and maybe even freak peeple out if they ask where I got that launcher.

    I like the numbers graphic but I didn't keep it there. It was a little too busy. But someone else might know how to arrange their icons around it so it will work. I'm not that talented. lol. Open sea eh? hmmm.

    This one I used a lot in the beginning. Looks really nice. Even nicer in my phone because I have unlocked Ativ, so I have RGB-slider for accents and with full electric blue it worked well

    Its from the Zedge app.

    This one I sometimes used in lock screen, but I guess it should work on start also? (sorry this is probably little off topic)

    This is a photo that I took on my holiday to San Francisco, it's a vertical panorama taken on my 1020 - personally the black and white + the portrait layout works well on my tiles.

    What it looks like on my phone:

    One of my early Start Screens...

    gjfs8px.jpg

    I've found that some paintings work, some don't...even the busiest of images has made a cool background for me (a shot of a box of crayons), and some of the plainest 3d images have failed.

    I find myself using 3d sphere images most, but I try to switch things up to keep everything fresh.
