Macstack phone background

I used iPhone 11 Pro Max resolution

Needs work.

And I think I may do other versions, like at least a dark one.

Or I may not do anything else, I don't even have a smartphone :p

Here's another one. I'm not sure about this one, as this theme has more colors, but I don't think I like a white background pic.

That's very beige.

I'd be thinking half-and-half. Maybe use the Findey to split up the two color areas.

It has many names, or many styles that look similar:

80s/outrun/vaporwave/synthwave aesthetics

Mostly lots of blue, pink, purple, and neon/laser effects.

You know, if you wanted, I could very easily install these as styles. All you'd have to do would be download this little file, change the colors, and name it whatever you wanted it to be called.

I created the 1999 color scheme first, and creating the 2000 color scheme only took about 20-30 minutes. It's not very difficult.

that involves a lot of guessing, and no idea how to see what I'm doing

seriously, I got the file, and I have no clue what I'm looking at. I see the word "color" in some places, and what I guess are hex color codes, but I don't know what part of the website those refer too? I can't change things blindly

tried to find an online graphic editor for this, where I can load the website and the file, and then see changes as I make them, but couldn't find anything, because I don't know what I'm doing

:(

would somebody please try one of the backgrounds and post a screenshot?

I actually don't have a smartphone, so I have no idea how they actually look on a phone.

That looks more like Samsung's One UI than Windows Phone.

THE BOTTOM

between the arrow and the "magnifying glass/lollypop/search icon", that icon in the middle is a Windows logo.

Believe it or not, once upon a time, a long long time ago, I took an HTML 1.0 class, and later a Dreamweaver (graphic html editor) class.

I couldn't make a website to save my life. :(

I also took a photoshop class once. I'd like to believe that some times, I can still make some pretty pictures.

Set that file as your custom stylesheet for this site.

It won't affect how the site works, but when you change the color hex codes it will change the colors of the things on the site.

You know how a lot of different elements on this site are the same color? That generally means that those elements' colors are all specified at the same time, in one declaration, so if you change that color's declaration, you'll change the color of all of those elements.

Apple provides a tool called "Digital Color Meter.app"(although sometimes it's written "DigitalColor Meter.app"), and it's installed by default in newer versions of the OS(or as part of Xcode in older versions), and it will tell you the hex code for whatever color your mouse is over. Then you can just search for that code within the file. Change it to something else, and you'll change all of the elements of that color to the different color you selected.

You can use your image editor to find the hex codes for the colors you want to change things to.

I'm not saying I will do any of that. I'd like to, maybe, but I don't know if I will.

that makes sense... I think...

Tried to an "old school Mac OS one". This sucks big time because I was too lazy to use a proper grid, and small pixel patterns do wacky stuff at small sizes, but I decided to post it anyway. The background for example, should be a checkered pattern, but it looks gray because the the pixels are too small.

(zoom in for the full res, you may need to open the image in anew window)

These are not Macstack specific, but they're textures I got from some old MAF CD, and I decided to put them in this format
