Images from the web as iPhone wallpaper

Last week, we pointed out the good news that The Iconfactory had resized their entire collection of desktop images for use with the iPhone (how cool does Nibbler look on my iPhone at right? Very cool). The problem is that it's kind of a pain to get them onto your iPhone.

The method I came up with is the same process that's described on Gedblog:
  • Download the image to your desktop computer
  • Drop it into iPhoto
  • Sync your iPhone, making sure that it's going to synchronize pictures, including your new desktops
  • On the iPhone, go to Settings > Wallpaper. Select your library of images
  • Navigate to the image you're after and select "Set as wallpaper."
It's not the most difficult procedure in the world, but it would be nice to grab the image from Safari on the phone itself.

Update - Reader Michael writes, "...right click on the image in Safari and then select 'Add image to iPhoto library.'" Thanks, Michael!

Now that you know how, why not check out the iPhone Wallpapers Flickr group?
