If you're a PlayStation 4 owner you may be aware that todays software update (4.5) adds custom wallpaper support, allowing you to use any screenshot on your console as a home screen wallpaper. This of course lets you set any of the screenshots you've taken in video games as a wallpaper (like the ones I've been sharing in our screenshot thread of the beautiful Horizon Zero Dawn), but you can just as easily use external images for this too:

Simply navigate your PS4's browser to the URL of the wallpaper image you'd like to use, fullscreen it and take a screenshot with the share button. Then head to your Theme settings, choose 'Custom' & you'll find your screenshot in the 'Other' folder. Easy!

If you'd like to use the same STR wallpaper as I tweeted above, just point your PS4 browser to http://bit.ly/2m2rGn3. Alternatively, you can find lots of other STR wallpapers on our main site here as well, should you fancy!
(You can ofc use this as a desktop wallpaper too)

Have fun :)

Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Might as well dump this in here rather than create another thread for it:

Been playing a lot of Persona 5 these last few days and loving the style & colour scheme it uses. Had the idea of designing a Persona 5 inspired version of our star so figured I'd give it a go whilst I was feeling creative! It turned out quite well (If I do say so myself) so went on to make a new wallpaper with it as well. Feel free to use if you'd like, tis my new PC background :)

(This is 1080p but I have it in 4K as well should anyone want a bigger version of it. Just ask!)


annnd here's a couple new avatars I did too:

Site note for Anny:
Feel free to add the wallpaper to the main site and the avatars to the forum gallery mate:
Here's a preview thumb for the site:

The wallpaper I posted in the OP could still do with being added as well if you get around to doing this one, bud. You should still have both images for that in your Discord history from last year but here they are for convenience:

All those should be updated and live on the site now mate, and the avatars in our gallery within the UCP too :)

As usual, bang up job with them - they look awesome! :)

Give me a shout about placement on the Wallpapers page if you like - I've added them in throughout the order to both showcase them and also not lose some of the awesome old ones either, but if you can think of a better order happy to change that up!

Now that, as I said on Discord, is awesome!

I'll update that onto the site too later this week :D
