An inhabited planet and her moons glide through the ether.

Another wide shot for 2 monitors. The main planet and large moon were made with Flaming Pear's "LunarCell" (a very nice plug-in, I might add). Everything else was made in UIC except for a few Photoshop Lens Flares.

Through A Nebula Darkly

Galactic plane through a nebula
Peering through a dusty nebula, our sites are set on an obscured arm of a vast spiral galaxy.

Here is another potential multi-monitor wallpaper that I made with Photoshop, UIC plug-ins and the Flaming Pear "Glitterato" plug-in. UIC plug-ins used: Stars, Textured Stars with streaks), Galaxy, and Interstellar Gas.

There is a layer of Stars, then some dim Textured Stars, followed by Galaxy (multi-hued), then the Glitterato, the Interstellar Gas (two Difference Cloud filter runs on it), and finally Textured Stars with streaks. Some blurring and opacity changes thrown in there to finish it off.

Dual Monitor Mayhem

venus-like dual monitor

I run dual monitors at work and I like to have wallpaper that stretches across both screens nicely. To get an image to fit your screens, you will need to know the screen resolution of one monitor, mine at work is 1152 x 864. Take your screen width and multiply it by 2 (mine would be 2304) and that is how wide your image needs to be. The image height needs to be the same as your screen height (mine would be 864). So any image I want to fit across my monitors would need to be 2304 x 864. Find or create an image of that size and set it as your wallpaper, and then set the wallpaper "Position" to "Tiled".

Click on the image above to see a dual monitor image (2048 x 768) I created in Photoshop using only Universe Image Creator plug-ins.

Send me your dual monitor creations using Universe and I'll post them here.

In The Beginning...


This is a site to post your Universe created images. They can be made entirely from Universe or from some other package with the Universe plug-ins - but some aspect of the image must be made from Universe. Please explain your image in as much detail as you like.

It doesn't matter where the image is hosted, but please make sure your links work. I used flickr to host the image for this post.

Comments are welcome, but please be kind and be helpful.

If you would like to submit your work you will need to signup with Blogger, and email the uniblogger (removing *no-spam*) with your username.
