here and here, and a guide to uploading your completed WPS here.

Perhaps a different, suitably licensed image might work as a replacement. See the FreeImages page for some links to sources of images with open licenses. This is a guide for posting your own WPS creations in the galleries, it will walk you through the steps required to get your WPS shared with the Rockbox community. Please read the ThemeGuidelines page before getting started. For an example of what the final product will look like if it's done properly, click here.
0) SIGN IN/REGISTER If you have not registered with the Rockbox Wiki yet, you need to do so in order to contribute to the WPS Gallery. Click here to register, and be sure to take note of the second step. If you have registered already, and took note of the second step when you did, you're ready for step 1.
1) PACKAGE YOUR FILES If your WPS is simply a .WPS file and does not involve any extra files (i.e. images, fonts, icons, etc.), you can skip to step 2. A .ZIP file of your WPS and all its associated files needs to be created. Here's what you do:
2) TAKE SCREENSHOTS You must include a screenshot of your WPS to display on the page so that people can see what they're downloading before expending precious time and bandwidth. Your screenshot should be displayed at the native resolution of your target device. Please do not upload oversized "screenshots". If your WPS changes the appearance of the menu as well, you might as well grab an image of that, too. There are two ways to obtain screenshots:
3) CHECK YOUR WORK
4) UPLOAD YOUR FILES
5) POST IT! Once you've uploaded all of the necessary files, return to the WPS Gallery page, scroll to the bottom, and click "Edit". If you followed step 0 correctly, the page editor window should pop up. Now, being the kind, selfless person you are, you're going to put your WPS after everyone else's (how nice!) OR if you see the gallery in alphabetical order, keep it that way. Scroll down to the bottom of the code and hopefully the last line will be three dashes (---). This indicates a line break separating the previous WPS on the page from what will soon be yours. The basic template for a post looks like something like this:
--- ---++(Username or WPS Title here) <img src="%ATTACHURLPATH%/(Name of the image.PNG)" alt="(name again with extension)" width="(x)" height="(y)" /> Download: [[%ATTACHURL%/(Name of the file.ZIP or file.WPS)][(Text to be displayed)]] (Give a short description here of what you made, the things that you like about it and how it does what it does. Keep in mind that still pictures can't show everything - so be sure to point out alternating sublines, dancing puffs, or anything else that changes. This is also a good time to mention if your WPS is released under a specific license or requires any special patches not included in the official build.) (Then sign it by copying and pasting the signature created for you) ---
Where everything inside circular brackets (like this) is something you need to change. Remove the brackets and the text between when entering your info but leave the rest untouched. The width and height ("x" and "y") can be found from your picture's properties or you can just look further up in the code and see what other people have put for the dimensions. If you're on the right page, they should be the same as yours. (This is generally a good trick if you run into problems. Plagiarism is the highest form of flattery, right?) Now preview the page, making sure everything's looking good and proper (no attachments lingering at the bottom of the page, no broken code uglying up the place, your screenshots shining like diamonds). Once you approve of what you see, scroll to the bottom and click "Save Changes". You have now uploaded your WPS for the world to see. Well done! Now get cracking on your next one!
