In a Nutshell ~ I am so happy to announce my new website "Artemis Wallpapers", simply the site allow you to create a grid images from your Instagram photos to use it on your devices as a wallpaper

Backstory!

hello everyone ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ, how are you doing ๐Ÿ™‚... well, a few weeks ago (it's been a month since I wrote this post, but I was waiting for the Facebook approval to launch the site, and finally I got it on 20/11/2021 ๐Ÿคฉ), one of my friends sent me this quote:

Everything you've ever wanted is Sitting on the other side of fear

By: George Addair

it was an inspiration for me, to think about different aspects of our lives and how accurate this applies to them! if we just stepped out of our comfort zone, a lot of opportunities will open to us.

this happened after my contract with the company is ended ๐Ÿ™, and I was negotiating on the new contract, they detect like 40%, and laid off over 50 employees from the company. and at the same time, I was looking for a new job, and sending my CV to everyone I know. so yes it was tough times back then. thankfully, now I am back to work, in the same place, but got the package down to -10% only, still I can live on that, and so grateful I still have a job ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ.

my goal for my career is to work for myself full time, bean my own boss, be free, it will take time to be sufficient. so I am trying new projects and ideas to find something meaningful and can provide me with passive income if it is possible.

The Quote

well, that quote stuck to me, so I decided to put it on my desktop wallpaper, to keep me inspired. and while thinking of a creative way to make the new wallpaper, I thought why not use some of Instagram photos, as long as I am using it privately I think it's fine, but still I am always asking for permission. and what is the best profile to get some inspiration, of course, it's my friend Stillness.

She is an amazing and creative person with an eye for the perfect shot, check out her last photos:

all of her pictures are so beautiful, which makes it hard to select just one. so I came up with this idea:

stillness wallpaper

Idea to Production

after I used that image for a while on my laptop, a lot asked me about it. yes, they were amazed by the photos of course, but they also asked how I created them, and how they can create their images in the same way!

so here came the idea to create a tool to easily generate grid images from Instagram.

I started to implement the idea, and submit it to Facebook, and I finally got the approval.

As a Thank You

I named the site "Artemis Wallpapers", this name means so much, and I'll leave at this ๐Ÿ˜œ.

so thanks to Stillness for the light bulb that initiated the whole idea, please check her amazing and creative work:

also worth mentioning another friend of mine who really has amazing takes on street photography, and with unique style, I really love his profile too, check out thehobocup.

Final thought!

the site (Artemis Wallpapers) is still in its early stages, and I know maybe there are already other services with the same Idea, but I liked the project, and as usual, I love to tackle new ideas and different programming languages. and this is my first time plying with Facebook API, in general, it was a fun project to do.

I will add more features to the site, like adding your text on the image, adding a watermark for copywriter protection, and more grid styles.

and if you have more ideas or you faced any issues, please contact me.

since you are still here, check out my other projects ๐Ÿ™‚

thank you for your support, and I hope you enjoy using Artemis Wallpapers ๐Ÿ˜Š.
