Default Re: How To: Create your own BlackBerry Wallpapers

I have a program that can batch crop and resize a lot of images into a size suited for blackberry.

Binaries:
hxxp://static.nithinphilips.com/ImageCropper/ImageCropper-Console-1.0.zip

Source Code:
hxxp://svn.nithinphilips.com/svn/ImageCropper2/trunk/

Basically, if you have a ton of wallpapers in a folder, say C:\wallpapers, and you extracted the program into C:\Downloads you can run this program from the command prompt like so:

C:\Downloads\ImageCropper.exe --output-format=JPG --preserve-structure --recurse --aspect=1.33333 --long-side=480 --output-format=JPG "C:\wallpapers"

wait for it to finish and you now have wallpapers suited for your BlackBerry

(To start the command prompt, type cmd in the run dialog. Then cd to the folder you want the output saved (for example cd C:\blackberrywp)

To see all options run

ImageCropper.exe --help

Depending on your phone, you may have to change the --aspect= and --long-side= options. With the --preserve-structure option, the directory tree structure of the input folder will be kept in the output.
