Which method are you using to try and set a wallpaper?
"1. From the home screen, (depending on launcher), tap menu>Wallpaper>Gallery>folder you dropped wallpapers into should appear in the gallery list, select one and done."
This is how I found, I was able to get to them using ASTRO
Hmm. Well i've never tried to use ASTRO to view pictures or even set wallpaper. It should have no problem opening the picture. It should at the very least present you with a "complete action using" screen where you can select gallery as an option to open the jpg file with. I would suggest using gallery and skipping ASTRO altogether and see if that works.
I did "complete action using" but I chose ASTRO over Gallery because that is where my files are. I saved them under sd\downloads and created a wallpaper folder. If I select the pics directly from the files I am able to view them.
Ahh, Okay, you might have to clear ASTRO's defaults so that you can get the gallery view back.
Try settings>applications>manage applications>ASTRO File Manager>clear defaults.
Once you do that, try again but choose gallery to complete action with. Your wallpapers should show up in gallery despite using ASTRO to do anything
I downloaded all the wallpapers and Wall Switcher and set it to change my wallpaper evey 12 hours. Since I will own my EVO for 2 years (720 days) I will never see the same wallpaper twice. This is really cool. In 2 years when I get a more powerful HTC EVO2 I will start over.
I have done that and there are no defaults set, so nothing to change in Astro. The Wallpapers aren't showing up in my gallery. They are stored on my sd card so I am sure I can move them there.
Yep.....I think they are moving them now. Wish me luck
Thank you thank you thank you
I have my wallpaper directory structure like this
They show up in gallery just fine that way.
I have mine the same way lol.
It didn't work exactlly. It got snagged up on one bad file, I can't delete it (Astro keeps FCing), but will try from home using usb hard disk. I did get over 500 into gallery so it does work, I just must have had it in a directory that Gallery couldn't get to before.
Thanks for all the help
i downloaded the nomedia zip and put it in a folder on my sd card: sd card > documents > wallpaper.
and i put a wallpaper file in the wallpaper folder. i have a question. after i unzipped the file it looks like it's just an empty folder called 'nomedia'. i am on a mac though so maybe i can't see something. when i look at that folder using astro on the evo i see the nomedia folder and another file called: .nomedia
but i can still see my wallpaper file in my gallery when i look at all my albums. i can also see something called images which has all these random downloaded images - maybe from webpages? i wish i didn't have to look at that.
in my gallery i would like to see only pictures i have taken, not my wallpaper or whatever else.
I didn't download the zip file yet, but just wanted to point out that WallSwitch is awesome!
Thanks for posting that Dreamliner. Granted, I think I have to switch the intervals to not be as frequent, cuz it seems like it eats battery when the intervals are 30 minutes, but man is this app cool!
Holy wallpapers Batman! Thanks so much, it couldn't have been any easier with astro to drop all those on the phone and now with wallswitch I have more backgrounds than I know what to do with!!
I think this thread should be converted to a dump of wallpapers in general. Let me first start with what I'm using.
I see the similarities of your wallpaper with your avatar lol
Thought it deserved a bump
Yeah it does. Combining this zip file with WallSwitch is awesome. I have it set to change every hour and it's just beautiful.
Can't thank you enough for this. And the .nomedia file is great; my gallery was already getting filled with tons of icons. My problem though is that now those '.nomedia'ed folders don't show as selectable when I try to change my wallpaper. In other words, they're not filling up my gallery, but I can't get to them either. Any ideas?
The stock wallpapers are always available - as well as a few extras that came with LauncherPro - but I'm guessing that's because they are on the phone's internal drive, right?
Subscribed to thread!
Not in this area much but it seems this is worthy enough to be included in the global stickey. What is the consensus? Anyone can pm TS and request a thread to be put in there but IMO this one deserves it
Get more on board then PM TS or any of the guides that yall see in here!!
Great collection!!! Thanks much!!!
Here is 1600 more for you guys...well 1640 to be exact. All at exactly 960x800 size... I was going to post this exact thread...I use wall switch as well.
I shared it with rapid host, but its limited to 10 people. Hopefully someone can re-host it.
