    “Aurora” on the ipad is like an April fools joke. It might be just me, but I typically associate “Aurora” theme to Windows 7, not the iPad.

      I agree Sam. I would never use that one. lol

      A bunch of great selections here.

    I posted a few of my favs here – http://bit.ly/9XN2kZ – For the record I got most of these from interfacelift.com and then re-cropped them.

    “Despite the fact that the iPad has only been available for a few weeks, a huge range of wonderful wallpapers are already available.”

    No, really? How amazing that a device with a 15 year-old display size can be catered for so swiftly by the pro design community. I hear Adobe had to push a special update for PhotoShop so that it could crop something to the correct ratio…

    Sarcasm aside, these are lovely pics. There’s nothing special about them though, a lot of them are well known already (especially by visitors to MacThemes) and some are even defaults in other operating system installs from Apple or MS.

    I was thinking these might be the best collection of iPad wallpapers I had seen UNTIL I checked the sizes. I couldn’t find one that was sized to the native resolution of the iPad, a bunch were square and most were way under the native iPad resolution.
    Great pics but NOT a great collection of iPad wallpapers…

    • http://www.labusdesign.com Bill Labus

      Actually, all of these wallpapers are at the correct resolution- 1024×1024. The wallpapers need to be square so that they fill the iPad screen when it’s turned both portrait and landscape. In other words, these images are always cropped in some way, either the with the top and bottom cut off (landscape) or left and right cut off (portrait). So essentially, the ‘safe’ area that’s always visible is the 768×768 area in the center of the image.

      • http://1024x.net/ iPad Lover

        Indeed, the wallpaper 1024×1024 px looks perfect on my iPad.
        Personally, I download wallpaper from the site http://1024x.net/ – a beautiful collection, and the site is well optimized for the tablet!


  • http://www.ablepear.com Kevin Bomberry

    Every Friday on our blog ( http://blog.ablepear.com ) we publish iPhone, iPod touch and now recently iPad wallpapers (at the devices native resolution) for all to enjoy. I think some are quite nice and others are better for the home screen as they are a litle to busy for a backgro und wallpaper.

    Take a look and I hope you enjoy them. Cheers!
