Hello together,

the ambiences are kinda hard to read in summer, so I made 2 minimalistic ones to improve readability outside in summer times. Maybe we can collect more in here? File dimensions should be 1600 height and 540 width.

Thanks!

Edit: the green one works out very nice.

Human eyes are more sensitive to green color, that's why contrast seems higher. (To convert a picture from color to grayscale we usually use 72% of green 21% of red and 7% of blue). Just to say that green color is the best color for summer ;)

Thanks to @Morpog's idea I made this set of ambiences. You find them in various colours here: http://www.allboutn9.info/2014/06/tourmaline-high-contrast-ambiances.html

link doesn't work. Is it possible to them with a white highlight color instead of a "color"? I used to do this manually with the gconftool-2 command but that doesn't work anymore in 10.7.6

@manut Try open the link again, it should work fine. Else you find a link on the picture above (lower corner right). I tried it with a black&white version - but in seems SailfishOS choses a random color for the ambience (in my case orange). But I can upload the b&w version if you'd like to have it.

Thanks. It works now. Weird. As for the B/W one. Yes please. They look great.

manut ( 2014-06-11 12:17:47 +0300 )edit

@manut White is now available in the original Package as well as single download (on blog). Please let me know what ambience colour you get or if it is orange as well...

rainisto gave me the solution to create white highlight.

dconf write /desktop/jolla/theme/color/highlight "'#ffffff'" dconf write /desktop/jolla/theme/color/secondaryHighlight "'#aaaaaa'"

I like this one. It has kind of a vintage feel to it, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

Here's a high contrast version of the MeeGon sailor (original here: https://twitter.com/AllBoutN9/status/474227310665932800/photo/1) being observed by someone with a binocular ;-)

Enjoy your summer Sailors :-)

Thank you all. Maybe now it is possible to view or type SMS in sunny day :)

Thanks @caprico! I'm switching between the two versions depending on whether I'm indoors or outdoors :D

Based on caprico's Sailfish logo idea, I made this grungefish wallpaper. Edit: Reworked it a bit.

And while I was on it, I made another one: Dark Tiles

Summer and the bright sun are back (at least for half the planet). Thus I made this dark-side of the moon ambience. Yep, it's really dark and no colours...but that's how it's supposed to be for a high contrast ;-)

Chose your own (bright) ambience colour, by saving the picture as a favourite ambience.
