Default Zune HD Wallpaper Development Kit

This development kit is designed to help you lay out your design around the various elements on the Zune HD's lock screen.

Photoshop & GIMP Edition
The WDK requires Photoshop and allows you to add and remove the various design elements. It also allows you to try different click times since some times take up more space than others. ABI member Electron confirmed that this PSD works with free editing program GIMP! Download the Windows version of GIMP here. or other OSes here.

ABI Wallpapers are included to give you an example of how you can use this WDK to make your own wallpapers. Please feel free to remix these ABI wallpapers and post them to the ABI Logo Wallpaper thread.
