One of the great features is/was the 65.536 colors TFT screen. I've set a own background in the Now!-Screen and was surprised about the bad look, because Nokia 7650 and SX1 could it better.

Look at the terrible and shaded sky, especially in the Now! view:

well, as you can see, the background doesn't fill in the whole screen, maybe you should make the picture the size of the screen minus the topscreen with the network provider and time info. :con?

anyway with the new firmware, a theme manager is being released so :)

i suppose that the quality is decreased (65000 to 256 color)
to safeguard smartphone's speed...

but i disagree whit this method....

@speedman

I've make the size of the pic exactly like the backround of the Now!-Screen is (was not difficult to measure that out by a screenshot with an image app on the pc) ;)

@smirnoff

Yes, I'm also think that this is the reduce of colors - it remembers me of photos on the psion netBook (Serie7), which have also too less colors.

Maybe, the reason is, that Now! convert the jpg to the symbian standard MBM with 256 colors :frown:

thats probably it, i must say i never noticed it, but i got a newer firmware.

i say we just wait till the firmware is released and then we can startup a new topic with the bigs we might still encounter.

it's only a few days away now so stay tuned :listen:

This is not something you can do at the moment. You will have to wait for an upgrade to resolve it.
It will not be on the release that is almost out, but will be on a future update.
See below. I removed all of the links from my Favorites pane so you can see the image better.
