Found a similar wallpaper like this of the schedule so I thought why not I'll give it a try..I'm not good at photoshopping so its really basic but I like it so far, don't mind the crops of the players its just a sample for now I'm mainly working on the layout of schedule. The picture is the homepage of the chargers.. so hopefully I'm not breaking any rules.. if so I'll be glad to remove them. So here they are, remember they are just samples.. not sure when they will be finished but most likely it will be in 1680x1050 but I'll see.. let me know what you guys think..

Looks pretty tight for a basic sample. I'd take it if you made something of the sort.

Look pretty good blending wise but you can always crop out a lot more. make it look cleaner. You could also "highlight" the players if you wanted to and make them pop instead of blend in. Definitely think it'd look a lot cleaner as a stand alone schedule with just the dates and opponents, but the players give it a nice flair.

Yeah now that I look at it more I think it'd look better popped. Cause you also begin to see the players and the fans overlapp creating this ugly mesh and making it look worse. Anyway could work though, just tweak it a little and it looks like you're on your way to a good set of wallpapers

Yeah I'm not the best wouldn't even consider myself average I just mess with tools and I'll try to clean the image up as clean as possible for now they are just there for preview and stuff. But thanks for the input I probably will have one without a player and just the standard layout with the players.

If you want any of your favorite pictures post them up and I'll try to crop them in. Bigger the better.

Heres the schedule that I have so far without anyone on the side still working on those.. Let me know what you think its 1680x1050 so if you need a smaller size let me know. Also what do you guys thinking about removing the BYE icon to make room for the redskins one so it's not hanging down there.

They are all good, and I will use them all, but the font you used on "chargers schedule" is the old chargers font.
