Why is this larger than the resolution of the iPad?

Apple recommends that wallpaper created for the iPad be made to a resolution of 1024x1024 so that the image is not stretched/distorted when rotating the device into portrait or landscape.


How did you make it?

This background was made using graphic design software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Filter Forge, Genetica, Alien Skin, Topaz Labs, as well as several other programs.
