Ubuntu Budgie Wallpapers

This repo holds the wallpapers for each Ubuntu Budgie release

Default Wallpapers

Generally, each Ubuntu Budgie release brings a brand new set of wallpapers. However, there are a few "default" wallpapers that we ship on all releases:

Quality Assurance

To minimize size of the debian package and to provide the best experience for our users, we follow these optmization steps for each image:

  • You'll need these packages for the tools used here:
    imagemagick, jhead and mozjpeg

  • Convert image to JPG if in another format:
    mogrify -format jpg <imagefile>

  • Scale down image to match 4K (3840x2400) size:
    mogrify -resize 3840x <image.jpg>

  • If image is still huge in size (above 4MB), check it's quality level:
    identify -verbose <image.jpg> | grep 'Image:\|Quality'
    If higher than 92, reduce it down:
    mogrify -quality 92 <image.jpg>

  • Remove all metadata except XMP and comments:
    jhead -autorot -de -di -du -c <image.jpg>

  • Losslessly optimize images with mozjpeg:
    /opt/mozjpeg/bin/jpegtran -optimize -progressive -outfile 'Output.jpg' 'Input.jpg'

After renaming the resulting image to Image_Title_by_Artist format, it is ready for inclusion.
