(Multiple sizes of my 'Solar System to Scale' wallpaper with a new preview.)

A minimalist infographic wallpaper depicting the size of our solar system to scale.

I kept the design simple and easy on the eyes, to be ideal for a operating environment.

I also wrote an interesting blog post to accompany the wallpaper that has some fascinating numbers and comparisons on the size of our solar system, galaxy, and universe.

I also created the monitor in the preview, which will be included in future wallpaper previews.

Sizes included:

iPhone 4
- 640x960

Single Display
- 1365x768
- 1440x900
- 1600x900
- 1680x1050
- 1920x1080
- 1920x1200
- 2560x1440*

Dual Display
- 2730x768
- 2880x900
- 3200x900
- 3360x1050
- 3840x1080
- 3840x1200

*UPDATE: Expanse @ 2560x1440, per ephimethueus's request.

Also, since it's an infographic, I'm releasing this on a Creative Commons license so feel free to use it (but not alter it) wherever it can be of use.

Is it possible for a 5120x1440 please?
Coswyn's avatar
For triple monitors? Image on the center monitor and empty on the side monitors?

Is it possible to get a 7680x2160?
Dobbie03's avatar
For double monitors.  I was hoping for a 7680x2160 of that you have above in your original too.

I was searching for a wallpaper of the show The Expanse, this came up. Nice concept, I enjoyed very much but it is way to pale and bright to work at night, as I usually do. 

So I "forked" here: tenlaws.deviantart.com/art/The…  Thanks Coswyn.

would it be possible to get a 5760x1080 version?

Great work. Thank you. A lossless PNG would be more suitable for these fine lines, in my opinion.

Is it too late for any chance of a 5760x1080 version? 

I've had this wallpaper for a while now, used to use it on my dual 2880x900 setup, but I've upgraded recently to triple 1080p monitors.

What style layout? Single infographic extended over three screens? One with the infographic and two blank for negative space?
LordReserei's avatar
I'd love for the infographic to be extended over three screens, but having an understanding of the time/effort involved (I've had to convert a fair share of my own wallpapers)--I would understand if one with the infographic and two blank would be less time consuming, and I'd equally be grateful. It's completely up to you. :)

Are you requesting the PSD?
Forrestdf's avatar
Where did you get the screen to put the wall in? I've been trying to find things like that forever.
Coswyn's avatar
Are you referring to the gray backdrop?
Forrestdf's avatar
No I am referring to the placement of the smaller photo inside the pic/render of the screen labeled COSWYN.
Coswyn's avatar
Oh, that's one of my other pieces...

I know you made it, but how? And is there any way I could find/make a similar thing?

Coswyn's avatar
Pluto is small, just pretend it's a dead pixel. ;)
