Wallpapers for low-end Amigas

Here you can post wallpapers that are low-color (need to look good in 8-64 color modes) and suitable for 640x256, 640x512 etc.
As I don't have any, I ask you to start first.

I have my A1200 running through an S-Video adapter on an LCD monitor, so I have my Workbench set to fill the full viewable overscan area, which is 690x540 on this monitor. Here are some of the wallpapers I have resized and remapped to my Workbench's locked 16 colour palette.

Here are a few more 690x540 16 colour wallpapers, which all use the same palette so if you lock your colours with FullPalette and only use 16 colours (great for any Amiga slower than a 040, including OCS Amigas) you can switch between these images without your icons and applications having their colours changed too.





Of course if your screen resolution is lower, you can crop the images to save a bit of memory, but never resize them once they've been colour-reduced like this.

Made this one a while back, 640x256x4. Looks way better on interlaced monitors

Get the Workbench-ready version here

i am looking for something like this as well.. a pain to go through many backdrops that actually don't look good with 64 colors...

especially nice would also be something in 1024*768 with 64 or less colors.

I discovered that my crappy LCD screen gives a nice interlace blurry effect when I scroll the window... And yes it does make your Roy Orbison pic look great
