    Unlock picture

    I have tried several pictures to use for the unlock screen but they just don't
    work well for me. I thought about how on my Android phone has the dots
    available and I can draw the lines. I wanted something similar to use
    for the unlock screen on my touch Windows 8 but the unlock supports
    lines, circles and dots (touching the dot). I came up with this picture
    that works pretty well and I wanted to share it.

    If you hate it, I apologize in advance.

    Windows 8.1 Pro x64 Media Center Edition eyes did hurt there for a moment .

    This is a great image for the people that want to have the dots 'in place' when using the swipe method for unlocking their device. I myself prefer the 'ordinary' picture with no obvious connectionpoints. But this might be usefull for some users.

    Thanks for sharing orlandotek.
