Yes, like you said, the source photo isn't ideal.
But you CAN make something out of it with programs like Gimp.
Azaloth gave some real good suggestions.

Btw, I come from using Photoshop (we use that in class) and I feel uncomfortable with the Gimp :( Because I can create real nice graphics with Photoshop, but in Gimp I can't, but that's probably just me. Alot of things are different in the Gimp. But I really want to learn to use the Gimp efficiently... :( Open Source rocks.

Question for Gimp users: Is there some sort of "Layer effects" like in Photoshop? So you can add for example shadow/outline/glow/whatever to a specific layer? - Mar 29 2006
Very good work,
but it can be improved (just a little bit) in 2 areas:

1. better quality photo, even the new updated version isn't stunning, the quality just lacks, but that could be your camera's fault, i don't know

2. you should use programs like the Gimp to give it some 'finishing touches', change the color a bit, add a duplicate layer with some effect to it... try some stuff out ;)
Plus, the Gimp could help to make the 'bad quality' look better.

I do like the concept! And when I view it as a smaller picture, it looks very nice! - Mar 26 2006

I like it very much!
Very special effect.
and so very beautiful.

How did you take that photo?

Do you have a source file or a version for widescreen? (1280x800) - Mar 29 2006

I like it ! :)

I see you are a fan of some of Disney's soundtracks ? (incl. Elton John and Phil Collins)
I like some of their soundtracks too
(Especially OST of TLK)
I'm a big fan of drawn 2D Animation :D

Anyway, nice desktop.
Songbird is coming along well too :)
Though I will stick with amaroK myself ;) - Mar 06 2006

I just wanted to say that if you apt-get dist-upgrade, atleast with Kubuntu 6.04, you'll get this Splash automatically :) - Mar 01 2006
