AHiL's Samsung Galaxy S4 Wallpaper Template

By JesseLax
22 Favourites
I recently upgraded to the Galaxy S4... and I love it!! I'm a little disappointed that the wallpaper doesn't scroll with the screen transition, but that's what launchers are for, right?
Anyway, I decided I wanted to build myself a template... and then when I actually did it I just couldn't stop. Now it's so cool I can't help but to share.

What is it?
:bulletgreen: One 2160x1920 .PSD Template to cover your S4 wallpaper creation and display needs.
*multiple group nests - recommended for users of Photoshop CS6 or higher

What this is not!
:bulletred: This is NOT another mock-up of a phone... I just did that bit for a frame because I thought it would be fun. Look elsewhere if that's what you're after.

What does it include?
:bulletblue: The template contains the S4 phone as a frame to show you the exact crop you'll see on your screen.
:bulletblue: Almost every facet of the phone's UI is included on separate layers... though I wouldn't recommend moving the icons, they're nearly perfectly positioned.
:bulletblue: To accommodate those who may be using a launcher with scrolling options, the width of the phone's horizontal has been doubled in this template (2160x1920).
:bulletblue: All of the text is customizable, however I used sanmsungsans.ttf (I will not supply this to you)... I'd recommend Roboto as a great substitute.
:bulletblue: I've included the White Frost frame as well as the Black Mist depicted.
:bulletblue: The "wallpaper" in the preview is actually the background in the PSD. Feel free to use it as your phone's wallpaper.
:bulletblue: If you want to keep your file-size down in Photoshop, delete all folders except the "Plain Black" folder [ S4 + GUI> Crop Overlay > Plain Black ] and guides if you like them.

How does it work?
It's so simple, you'll cry tears of joy. There's a single folder called "YOUR ART HERE". Insert (or build) your art there. Turn the "S4 + GUI" folder on and off to see how it will look on-screen. Easy-peasy!
If you're feeling feisty, customize the UI elements to suit your needs.

How do I install?  Please help!!

Hey there! Sorry, it's not installable. This is meant for photoshop, where you can use the file to build or crop your own wallpapers to see exactly how it will look on your screen. But the wallpaper is included in the file. If you know someone with Photoshop, you could ask them to save it for you so you can add it like a picture. :D

Can you share this wallpaper? pleeeeeeeaseeeee :) ?

Sorry, I no longer share wallpapers on my account anymore due to theft and misuse. I'm afraid if I post it here people will get the wrong idea and assume I'm handing them out again. If you happen to know someone with Photoshop, the wallpaper is included. You could ask them to download the file and save the wallpaper for you so you can install it. :)

Ah, I'm so pleased you found this useful!!

I think my cover shot there is turning some people away because it sort of looks like what it isn't. lol

Anyway, enjoy!

Thanks for this. I just got a new S4 and was looking for a template to start making some wallpapers - this works perfectly. :) Really helped me plan out where to put my icons to get the most out of my picture.

Ah! I'm so glad to hear it!! I was a bit worried the preview was difficult to understand, so it's excellent to get good feedback on it. Glad I was able to help. :D
