Hello Jolla & sailors,

as everybody knows, soon comes the long awaited event of Christmas again.
Event where all people are busy with a lots of decorations.

And i imagine if we want have something for our sailfish-phone, then would be maybe time to trigger something.

Who don't want for his phone a nice deco by Christmas time?

Better is to ask, Who is interested for have a nice Christmas ambience "a la jolla" for this pretty event?
And use it every years?
Me i'll certainly enjoy for it, and beg for jolla for it.

I guess that some (or many) sailors are in.
And why not, as described on this old existing post, If someone-else wants to give his own contribution for it, then please please go ahead, for the best of all.

*Please jolla please, for the joy of all. :-) *

Have all a good sail

@cemoi71 Nice that you bring this up again.

Thinking about it makes me wonder what the current specs for an ambience image are: They changed between SFOS-versions even on the Jolla 1. Now there's a tablet, a Jolla C, the Xperia X, all with different resolutions and aspect ratios. I wonder what type of picture (size, aspect ratio) would be the ideal starting point and how to get fro there to something that looks great on any device out there.

Since one of the latest SDK updates you can create your own Ambiences easily within the SDK. Maybe a community member can provide some nice pictures for the Ambience and some free-to-use ringtones?

@Dylan Van Assche i appreciate your intervention, but you seems not to understand what i meant in one point.
I'm already aware about the sdk. for what i mean you should see far away behind the technical aspect that we could call an arrangement of pics and sound.
that would be a kind of challenge or a gift, that someone do to the other one, and will bind at last all together. for a special event.
Challenge, because some things for Christmas could be fall in the business trap, that make it too bling-bling and superficial.
A gift, because jolla could enforce his fan-group, with something with their kind of style.
until now, jolla has made great ambiences modern, humble and well design.
Not superficial, with their own touch (that's what i think, and have no problem if someone is disagree).


But where i join you, is if a community member want to do something and demonstrate his creativity. then i'm more than open for it.
In my case i must admit that i have not talent for it... ;-)
Anyway +1 for you. maybe you could convince us with any talent ;-)

Just the last Update 2.1.2.3 you can easy create Ambiences from the gallery. I test it yesterday with downloaded Christmas pictures. Select a picture which is big enough and use the pulley menu. It is very easy. After it you can add Christmas ringtones etc. Have fun trying.

That's actually been possible from the very beginning. I do think this is the best way to go about it, as I don't think anyone at Jolla has either the time or the interest to create a very particular ambience like this.
