In previous SL-Inspiration tutorials we've covered how to use Second Life images to create desktop wallpapers, both as a gallery of images and as an animated wallpaper. Another subject we've covered in depth is how to create 360 degree panoramic images in Second Life, the hud you'll need to buy from the Marketplace, and the choice of software needed to stitch the images together. In this tutorial these two elements are brought together to create a desktop wallpaper using a 360 degree panoramic image created in Second Life. Click to view the tutorial. This video shows the 360 panorama used in the tutorial, (The video itself however is not part of the tutorial). Drag the image around as you would with any 360 panorama. When the video is paused the 360 panorama can still be viewed and moved around, although the 'next video' box will probably need to be closed.
Creating desktop wallpapers is a good way to share Second Life images, and may provide an opportunity for some people to sell their work. It can also be a unique way for store holders, club owners and any Second Life enterprise to project themselves to clients and patrons. An easy way to display Second Life desktop wallpapers as a gallery of images, or as an animated wallpaper is by using Awesome Wallpaper, which is free to download and use. Read the blog post on SL-Inspiration to find out more. This short video is an example of an animated desktop wallpaper created in Second Life.
