200 Beautifully Minimal Wallpapers For Your New iPad’s Retina Display [Update]

My friend Chris Herbert has released another wallpaper pack, and this time he’s made 200 beautifully minimal designs for the new iPad’s Retina display. His new collection, Subtle Papers II, is available for free now, and you’re sure to find at least one wallpaper that suits your fancy. A lot of sweat and love when into this collection, so be a kind soul and share it with your friends!

From Chris’s personal blog:

I wanted to do something bigger and better this round, not only in pixel density but also quantity. The original Subtle Papers contained 6 (3 dark and 3 light) wallpapers. I decided to “up the ante” this time and make a 2048 pixels by 2048 pixels of EVERY pattern from Subtle Patterns. Yes, I said every pattern, that’s almost 200 total. It took some time but with the magic of Atle Mo’s Photoshop pattern file and some homemade Actions, it made the process tolerable.

Subtle Patterns is indeed a great resource for designers, so be sure to check it out if that’s your thing. Chris’s Subtle Patterns for iPhone wallpaper collection is still available as well.

The 200 wallpapers in Subtle Papers II are hosted on Dropbox. They have been separated into light and dark designs. Chris notes that you can browse through them and download the specific ones you want, or download it all in a big, fat .zip file. I recommend saving them on your desktop computer and then sideloading them to your iPad due to Safari’s weird behavior with Retina-sized images in iOS.

Update: The original link got pulled, so here’s the link to the complete .zip file.

    Humm, I first clicked on the link for the DropBox, and had DropBox put those files into my personal DropBox. When they finished uploading, DropBox notified me saying “197 New Files Added”. I thought there was to be 200. Same thing when you download the .ZIP file; 197 instead of 200.

    These are nice, I personally am a fan of more vibrant and colorful ones. If you like check the ones out they’re tweeting at @RetinaiPadWalls.
