If you’re looking for some unique iPad wallpapers based on stunning photographs, you may want to check out Trey Ratcliff’s iPad Wallpaper Packs.
I first heard about Ratcliff’s work thanks to a nice Antipodean gent, Grant, who was in line next to me yesterday for the iPad 2 launch. Ratcliff is a renowned photographer, known especially for his HDR work and his travel photography. Here’s a little more about him, via About page at his StuckinCustoms site:
I’m best known for, well, I suppose, this site, StuckInCustoms.com, which has become the #1 Travel Photography Blog on the internet. The photos here have been seen more than 50 million times, including a few from my mom. My work first became popular after I had the honor of having the first HDR photo ever to hang in the Smithsonian. After that, I was fortunate enough to be represented by Getty, been featured on the BBC, ABC, FOX, CBS, and NBC, and have had numerous showings around the world.
And Ratcliff has got three excellent iPad wallpaper packs on sale at his site as well. Hit the jump for more details and a few more screenshots of some of these cool walls …
StuckinCustoms offers two packs with 15 wallpapers each for just under $5 each, and shows you thumbs of all the included walls so you can gauge which you like best. There’s also a SuperPack for just under $10 that includes the contents of the first two packs plus three bonus wallpapers.
Best of all, there are blurred versions of each wallpaper – which are nicer to use for the home screen, so the icons are stronger, while the standard versions are better suited for the lock screen. Here’s a couple of blurred walls, including one of the image used at the top of this post:
And here’s the standard and blurred versions of another great image, in use on my lock and home screens, repsectively:
I know that many of you may not be fond of the idea of paying for wallpapers, and it’s not something I have any intention of making a habit of; but I do feel that the uniqueness and stellar quality of these makes them worth a purchase. I bought the SuperPack today before writing this post.

Thanks Grant for the heads-up on these.
