Re: Using photos rather than "art"

I'm a Red Hat developer, and completely new to this list, so forgive
my ignorance.  I like the "blue" themes that Fedora has traditionally
chosen, but I was wondering if Fedora could have a photo for its
main background screen.  As an amateur photographer, I have several
"scenery" photos I've taken that may be suitable, and I'm willing to
donate. Some even have a nice blue theme.

I tend to agree with Ryan: we should have a pack of additional, maybe photographic, wallpapers. In the past I talked about havind even some king of online gallery where we could post tons of images and any user can find something of his liking (for an additional kick: rss feeds, ratings, comments)

(This is only 800x600, but the originals are much higher resolution)

One of the advantages of "abstract" art as a default is that it can be resized to norma or wide screens, can be used on CD covers, web buttons and banners, T-shirts... so we can easily have a consistent identity.

In theory, this photo or others could be used "as is" or even
"Fedorafied" to add the symbols the Fedora community desires.

The general thought is against "fedorification", so if we will use photos will most likely leave them unbranded.
