After seeing a post by the Retroist awhile ago I promptly forgot the link and went on my way. Later, when I was ready to change my wallpaper, I went back to his site to find this post. I was able to page through the many listings for ‘Wallpaper’ on his site to find this post. Along the way I found a different post that linked to a really cool image of the Atari logo. When I went to add this image to my home screen I found out it isn’t really easy to “Move and Scale” an image that doesn’t fit on the screen well. You can zoom in, but you can’t zoom out to get the entire image to fit on the screen. So I did a little looking and thanks to this website I was able to find out that I needed to make the image 744 X 1,392 pixels for the iPhone 5/c/s. With a little photoshop work I was able to make a pretty decent lock screen view of the logo. Maybe when I decide to change the home screen I will find either a good image of a “woody” 2600 or the stock joystick to fit under this logo. But until then, enjoy.

Thanks to Retro Justin @ http://www.boxing4free.com/retro/ for the original image.

P.S. To get this on your lock screen just open this link in Safari on your phone, and using the Share button Save Image. Then open Photos and choose Albums at the bottom and select Camera Roll. From there view your picture and press the Share button again and at the bottom select Use as Wallpaper. Then just select Set and Set Lock Screen and you are all done.
