Creating The Wallpaper

When I first thought about creating the wallpaper, I couldn’t see how I was going to get the sizing of screen shots right so that I also managed to keep the resolution high enough that each screen shot was not un- pixilated. It was only after talking to one of my good friends and fellow photography student that I  learned about something called Andrea Mosaic which is a free online program that enables the users to create mosaic works. Although this program aided images that are similar to what I wanted create it is not exactly what I needed, as it uses many very small images to compose a larger image that is created completely from the smaller images. After searching for any type of program online that could help me to produce a large scale collage of screen shots that I could use for my wallpaper. I came across a program called smilebox.

Smilebox is a program that you download from the internet and then use to create different types collages. 

Here (below) are a few screen shots of how I created the collage wallpaper. 

Stage 1 – selecting a collage frame.

Stage 2 – Begin loading the screen shots of pornographic media onto the collage frame work.

Stage 3 – One-se the whole collage frame is filled with screen shot images, then I would take a screen shot of it.

Stage 4 – Then I would open the screen shot of the collage frame in photoshop and crop it, so that the collage was the only part of the frame.

Stage 5 – From cropping the screen shot I would then be left with just the collage of graphic imagery.

Stage 6 – I then went onto compose many of these square collages, placing them into one large file as layers on photoshop.
