Did you know that iPhone backgrounds make great backgrounds for chat windows in Adium? See for yourself.
It’s really simple to do too. Here’s how.
1 – Grab a cool iPhone background. Here is the blue iPhone background I’m using.
2 – Open Adium and go to the preferences and click on the messages area.
3 – See that area for a custom background? Check the box and drag and drop your iPhone background in there.
Wa la. You’re done!
There are a few things to keep in mind.
First, the width of iPhone backgrounds are a bit limiting. Your window will need to be a fixed width or your background will need to wrap nicely. The window is not to skinny though. Also, most iPhone backgrounds don’t repeat well vertically. Some do though, so pick a nice one.
That’s it. Enjoy!
