The PlayBook currently utilizes 1024 x 1024 pixels on the screen which is the max width and height of the wallpaper in both landscape and portrait rotations. In landscape, the displayed portion is the 1024x600 region centered in the 1024x1024 canvas. And in portrait, you see the centered 600x1024 region of the 1024x1024 canvas.

You'll need to size the desired image you want displayed on the homescreen to 1024x600 pixels and then extend the canvas on either side up to 1024, so that the actual full size of the wallpaper is 1024x1024.. In landscape the image will fit the homescreen perfectly. When rotated to portrait you'll lose some of the image from left to right and see your canvas on the top and bottom, but at least for landscape you're good to go. It may sound confusing, but it works. For more on BlackBerry PlayBook wallpaper sizing check out our full guide here.

Free BlackBerry PlayBook Wallpapers


How do you download this? I clicked on the download, but nothing happened. Am I supposed to do something after downloading?

hey @Adam Zeis, why is this not scaling correctly? the wallpaper is 1024x1024 so it should scale to 1024x600 correctly right?

but my ribbon image looks stretched out compared to your snapshot. and yes, i actually counted down from the menu bar to the middle of the "B" you have 3 full circles. I have 5 on mine.
