A Commons pack is a set of 12 images together with a README suitable for bundling into a ZIP and selling as a download, for users to use as computer wallpapers or print on a calendar. (see m:User:pfctdayelise/WikimediaShop)
Requirements for images:
- No copyright concerns whatsoever
- Created by Wikimedians (initially, at least, rather than PD-NASA stuff)
- Very high quality and high resolution
- Ideally they should all make people gasp in disbelief that such amazing work is available for free
- No people (initially, at least, to avoid legal dramas)
- Good identification information (location, date, species)
- Should be "wallpaper like"
Each pack should be identified by a name (its theme) and a version number, so packs can be "updated" in the future without total recreation.
Below are some tentative suggestions. Before going "live" they need to be tested as wallpapers by a few people with different size screens, and get some feedback (as well as photographer comments/bio for the README).
w:Screen resolution: "Currently 1024×768 (XGA/XVGA, eXtended), 1280×1024 (SXGA Super eXtended Graphics Array), and 1600×1200 resolution (UXGA, Ultra-eXtended) are the most common display resolutions. ". So propose minimum height 768.
