    No I didn't missed your answer.
    I saw it, but as this member asked to me, I gave my god dam answer.

    Ohhh, THE answer ... Sorry, :beg: so you're god or something? You know everything about this member's needs and objectives?
    It's impossible that he wants to re-use templates from illustrator to create wallpapers ?
    As I said, my humble answer begun by "I dont know" like I dont pretend to know everything. Please allow this little worm to give his useless opinion my lord :beg:

    You are not the center of the world sorry.

    Sorry? What does this have to do with this thread?

    ? That was in prior comment.
    Otherwise if the second was also for you he should have merged! hehe.
    Illustrator is for .svg/vector.
    Member asked if there was any advantage to putting it together in Illustrator. No, there isn't.
    I just read the comments, is all.
    And strangely, I was of use.
    Being energy efficient with messages.
    I thought you may say thanks.
    It was a pretty serious offence by the member and may still cost you a reup to UL. Who knows.

    I don't have a lot of knowledge, but for that matter in my case would be photoshop the easiest tool to make and crop images for Kontakt.ninct library wallpapers.

    This is from our friend @bobdule and all credits goes to him.
    You have the correct dimensions in that png file, and split by the margins in two formats, one is small and one is BIG (when you resize Kontakt GUI). I hope that helps.

    the exact size used by native instruments is:

    597x98

    Thanks for all of the tips and info everyone.

    So following all of your suggestions here I have created a couple for my own use and on my Studio PC and on my laptop
    they all load perfectly in Kontakt 5 and 6 but I am unsure if screen / monitor size makes any difference.
    There seems to be a lot of space to the right hand size that Kontakt does not display so I have left that blank.

    I have also had a quick go at making one for a Library that a search of this forum did not bring any hits on to show what I mean
    and I attach it here.

    If someone would kindly have a look at it I would be very grateful.

    Heres a 2nd one.

    Each one made using the colours from the librarys GUI.
    If you think they are good enough I'll post them in the main thread.

    Well done.
    I find that the second one could use a more readable font though.

    :wink:

    Thanks oly

    The handwritten text is an image take from the Librarys resourses folder and looks like that on the GUI.

    I am trying to seperate the letters to make it more readable but it's not looking any better.
    I may have to use artistic licence and use a different font.
    :yes:

    @belinea2010
    Electric Funk already there.
    And Minneapolis Funk.
    And obviously the Origins stuff: House Pianos and the Basses too.

    Admitedly, since someone borked a few pages of that thread recently, the search system shows up way too much rubbish now...

    Hey chears for those and they are so much better than my amature efforts.

    I agree, that thread is so messed up its unusable.
    For example, I searched the whole thread for F9, F9 Origins and F9 electric with zero hits.

    Same here. And really it should be findable as F9 Audio, but none of them have been written out properly!

    I definitely know my way around Photoshop quite well, but fought for a while to figure out the proper dimensions for a Kontakt wallpaper. LOL Thanks, Belalugosi (and to others who had answers on the dimensions.. although it seems like 516x98 is the best choice)

    But yeah; 516x98 does suffice!

    Well as I said before, a big thanks everyone, especially Olymoon and Smoove Grooves, for
    being so helpful which I really appreciate.

    I think before I post any wallpapers I need to hone my Photoshop skills a heck of a lot more :rofl:
