Expanse by Coswyn Expanse by Coswyn
(Multiple sizes of my 'Solar System to Scale' wallpaper with a new preview.)

A minimalist infographic wallpaper depicting the size of our solar system to scale.

I kept the design simple and easy on the eyes, to be ideal for a operating environment.

I also wrote an interesting blog post to accompany the wallpaper that has some fascinating numbers and comparisons on the size of our solar system, galaxy, and universe.

I also created the monitor in the preview, which will be included in future wallpaper previews.

Sizes included:

iPhone 4
- 640x960

Single Display
- 1365x768
- 1440x900
- 1600x900
- 1680x1050
- 1920x1080
- 1920x1200
- 2560x1440*

Dual Display
- 2730x768
- 2880x900
- 3200x900
- 3360x1050
- 3840x1080
- 3840x1200

*UPDATE: Expanse @ 2560x1440, per ephimethueus's request.

Also, since it's an infographic, I'm releasing this on a Creative Commons license so feel free to use it (but not alter it) wherever it can be of use.

Great work. Thank you. A lossless PNG would be more suitable for these fine lines, in my opinion.

Is it too late for any chance of a 5760x1080 version? 

I've had this wallpaper for a while now, used to use it on my dual 2880x900 setup, but I've upgraded recently to triple 1080p monitors.

What style layout? Single infographic extended over three screens? One with the infographic and two blank for negative space?

I'd love for the infographic to be extended over three screens, but having an understanding of the time/effort involved (I've had to convert a fair share of my own wallpapers)--I would understand if one with the infographic and two blank would be less time consuming, and I'd equally be grateful. It's completely up to you. :)

No I am referring to the placement of the smaller photo inside the pic/render of the screen labeled COSWYN.

Why don't you create a "dark" version of that wallpaper?

It is already great, but i think you should make a dark variance of that.

This is the best wallpaper I have ever seen. It is so amazing. The price among my 3000 HD pieces.
I don't know if you take requests, but all the text and lines are really difficult to see on most of my monitors, so I thought I might as well ask. Could you possibly make a version where the text and drawings/lines are a bit darker or lighter then the background colour?

Hope you will because this is amazing.

Cheers

Now if the text and lines on your wallpaper were a little bit brighter it would just be amazing =)
