Well, backgrounds...not themes.

It's simple.

STEP 1.

Save this template:
http://alcozzi.deviantart.com/art/Xbox-NXE-Wallpaper-Template-104322594

STEP 2.

Open it with Photoshop, Paint.net, MS Paint or whatever you happen to use.

STEP 3.

Add whatever image/images you like on the white space (anything on the orange space will not be seen, it's covered up when on your dashboard).

STEP 4.

Save it as Jpeg.
Then put it on a USB stick or MP4 player or whatever uses a usb connection and holds data.

STEP 5.

Plug it into your XBox 360, go to Photo Library on the dashboard.
Go to your picture, press Y to add as background.

Voila!
All done. Smile
--------------------------------------------------------------

Here's mine. As you can see I got creative and put that rip there for where it says my gamertag and gamerscore and blood splatters to cover the gaps.


If you want to get even more creative, see if you can put a border or something around the area where you scroll through "MY XBOX", "GAME MARKETPLACE", etc

Awesome or what Smile

Yeah! We can have this thread dedicated to posting our Xbox 360 wallpapers!!! Very Happy

If only we had a voting system, we could vote the best one. Sad

Also we should share the links to our Xbox backgrounds. Smile

lol.. i just had a revelation... you can have porn "themes" on a closed system..

Not that I am that creepy...... so I just made a glamour-model one...




I also gave it a go on trying to find a High-Res Uncharted 2 picture... Then i realized that the game isnt 1080p.... So I would have to stretch them...




Then I realized that some people on Forza takes extremely good pictures, so I decided to steal them, and use for my own. Then I noticed that most pictures are shrunk to a minimal size... So why not use a GT5 high res photos...?
