Abstract backdrops for XBMC Aeon Skin

I’ve created some abstract backdrops for the XBox Media Center (XBMC) Aeon Skin.

Sample photos of the backdrops using the Aeon skin are shown below.

All of the images were sourced from stock.xchng which is a stock image library with free content. I still need to contact the authors of the images that were manipulated to get their permission to redistribute to anyone else that would like to use them.

I purposefully chose images that were crisp and not colored. I wanted the actual colored content in each menu, such movies and pictures, to pop out of the screen yet still have some level of eye candy for the menus. There could still be some improvements to align better with the Aeon menu overlay and perhaps refining of each image, but these will do for the moment.

If you are interested in using these backdrops with your Aeon skin please leave a comment below (might help convince the photo owners to allow redistribution).

    Absolutely! Very sharp, adds a bit of elegance. Let me know if I can lend any weight.

    hi - just wanted to ask if you knew that you can take screenshots by clicking the right thumbstick. might be easier than taking actual photos. keep up the good work.

    These are absolutely beautiful. I would love to be able to use these myself. Would definitely save me the work of finding good images and manipulating them myself. ^^

    Thanks, I didn’t think to check if there was any native screenshot capability within XBMC.
