Wallpapers of the week: galaxy variants

By , Apr 6, 2014

Jon Berry galaxy wallpaper splash

Another Sunday, another Wallpapers of the Week submission. Guys, keep the comments coming and make sure to catch me on Twitter to share the goods. This week is a featured artist who dropped me a tweet a couple weeks back and I am able to get him in the feed of wallpapers.

The section is only kept popular by the readers like you! To me, there is nothing better than a fresh wallpaper every week, if not every day. Thankfully, this week we have a three-for-one deal, with iPad included. Step past the fold for a quick download…

Wallpapers

This week, the featured artist is Jon Berry, who we previously included in another wallpaper post. Jon is a graphic artist that dabbles in photography on his personal blog. Similarly, he frequently posts his creations on twitter @jonnyb098. Below are his galaxy created wallpapers for both iPhone and iPad.

Downloading

Nabbing these slick wallpapers is a simple tap away. Under the above thumbnails, tap the device for which you want the image. Once the full resolution image is loaded, tap hold, then save to Camera Roll. From either the Settings.app or Photos.app, navigate to the newly saved image and set as wallpaper. On a desktop, right click save the image to the iTunes sync folder and it will appear the next time your device is synced.

Submissions

Like you see today, the featured artist sent me his images via @jim_gresham. I encourage you to chat with me or send over images for consideration. Alternatively, you can embed your images into an email to jim@idownloadblog.com. I look forward to your images.

    Have a section for Mac wallpapers please e.g. 1440×900,2880×1800,1080p

      a lot of the iPad wallpapers from this site/weekly work, but may not look as good on a retina MBp. They look fine on the non retina models.

      I use one of the default wallpapers of iOS 7 on my MacBook which looks great IMO:

      • Khizar Malik

        Mac running windows :)
        Thats fascinating :p

  • MHCsk

    Space wallpapers go really well with iOS 7.

  • hkgsulphate

    just j*zzed in pants

    • Straw hat

      Arghh!

  • Christian Mejía

    Amazing.

  • David Gitman

    awesome

  • iDB

    is there a way to downgrade from ios 7.1 to ios 7.0.6 on the 5s?

    • Anmol Malhotra

      Yes! Buy a new 5s :) :P

      • Maxim∑

        Don’t think that would work now, Apple goes through supply pretty fast

      • Anmol Malhotra

        Yeah I know!
        But still there’s a way to get 5s with firmware lower than 7.1.. He asked for a way :P

    • f96lrs

      No

    • Noaaahh

      Nope.

    • eXoguti093

      Noppeee

    • Marcus Gomita

      Nope

  • Jason

    can someone give me a hand, when I set the wallpaper it’s still zoomed in. I thought apple fixed this in 7.1?

    • Framboogle

      No, you need to turn on reduce motion for that.

    • Jon

      Pinch out. On iPad be sure to set the wallpaper in portrait mode. There’s a bug on iPad in 7.1 where setting a wallpaper in landscape obnoxiously zooms waaaaay in.

  • Framboogle

    Surprisingly good for a change!

  • dandy

    there’s a black dot cramping my style on 2nd. i feel the urge to clean it

    • Framboogle

      Like this?

      • Anmol Malhotra

        Framboogle new name : The iDB Dot Cleaner! or The iDB Black Dot Cleaner!
        You have a choice bro :D :p

      • dandy

        iphone5 one would be perfection

  • Taf Khan

    I created this about a year ago, still looking good on my iPhone 5.

  • Taf Khan

    On my iPhone 5.

    • Anmol Malhotra

      What?? :O
      Man do you drink alot? :O -_-

      • Taf Khan

        2-3 litres per day. It’s important to drink plenty fluids… :-D

      • Anmol Malhotra

        Oops! I was talking about getting drunked like drinking :P
        And at first that image didnt got loaded.. so it looked like you’re saying on my iphone 5 :P

      • Taf Khan

        Here you go, more cosmic creations.

      • Taf Khan

        Nice!

        You may notice the stars on each are the same, image may have been flipped proior to effects being applied. Nice though, done on the iPhone in a matter of seconds.

    • Benjamin J Schwartz

      The problem with this is that it isn’t the correct resolution for iOS 7 with parallax enabled. The wallpapers provided above as wallpapers of week are of a higher resolution and perfect for parallax.

  • Framboogle

    Without those distracting black dots.

    • omrishtam

      can you clean the iphone 5s/c please?

  • Andrew Roth

    I really like these. Usually they’re just kind of meh. Space wallpapers look great with iOS 7 and there are endless amounts of them to use!

  • Grolubao

    Awesome, seriously this was the best wallpapers ever published. I love galaxy variants!

  • Taf Khan

    Aurora for iPhone 5!

  • iPhone Gruru

    • Dani Hayes

      You should call this one “luau”. Hahaha.

  • Taf Khan

      • Taf Khan

        Thank You, glad you like it.

  • diggitydang

    Ohhhhh, actual GALAXY wallpapers. I read the title and thought, “Why would Apple fans wanna download Samsung’s wallpapers???”… I like these MUCH better!!! Hahahaha.
