Bug Description

The community wallpapers (attached) have been collated by Nathan from the entries on Flickr.

Nathan is asking for our help to package these for 17.10:

Nathan Haines: I have a tab-delimited list of the winners (the URLs shouldn't be needed for packaging), and the wallpapers. They need resized and optimized to reasonable file sizes and then all the package stuff needs done.

I've extracted these, resized them to max 4k, exported as PNG and then run them through a PNGcrush. However, the resulting files were bigger than the original JPGs - so I don't think there is much optimisation to be done here.

A few of the files are bigger than 4k, but I think that's OK.

I converted the PNG to a jpeg, resized them all to 4K, reduced the quality slightly. The size is now 12M. I hope it's acceptable - if not, the originals are here for someone else to try to work on. 116M would increased the size of the ISO by 100M - it's that much bigger than zesty's wallpapers - that can't happen IMO.

The pkg is ready on the attached branch, will wait until near the end of the day before uploading so we can hopefully get the new default wallpaper.
