Long time lurker, 2nd time poster...

Here is my xp *sigh* desktop for April.. but don't dispair, iMac will be purchased in 2ish weeks (which will hopefully allow tiger and upgrade, if no word by the 16th... will order and enjoy my rev a with panther)!

Just incase anyone cares about the car, it is a car-show prototype (slash concept car) with the name of the legendary Holden Torana... this version has a white leather interior, and the beautiful "ManGenta" (yes, that is the real name) paint :D

More info:

lukeyd-

What are those transparent boxes (Programs and System) that hold your icons?

Is it a program or just your wallpaper?


Thanks!

When you post a reply, select the "format image" button (looks like a mountain with a sun above from the message tools), then paste in the link to your image.

Alternatively, you can attach an image (max 100KB) to your message using the Manage Attachments button (in the Additional Options box, just below the Submit Reply button) This will display a thumbnail of the image in your post which links to a larger version of the file in a new window. This option is preferred by users on lower bandwidth connections.

Edit: No problem Fedora

whoops... guess I don't know how to post a pic :o
Easiest way, not using any 3rd party software...

EDIT: This only works with the old Panther version of Preview. The new Preview in Tiger no longer has an export function where you can set a target size... :(

1) Take a snapshot of your desktop. I find it easier to just hit cmd-shift-3 (although some like to use Grab for this)

2) You now have a file on your Desktop, typically called Picture 1.pdf, open that in Preview (should be the default when double-clicked, but Acrobat/Acrobat Reader etc. may have messed with that)

3) In Preview choose File -> Export... (cmd-shift-E), you now get a dialog box, choose Format: JPEG, and hit the Options-button

4) You get a new dialog called JPEG Options, choose Best Depth, slide the Quality Slider to Best, check the Target size button and write 100000 (some prefer 102400), and press OK

5) Back in the Picture 1.pdf-save dialog you navigate to an apropiate place where you want your Desktop picture (in JPEG format) to be saved (cmd-D will take you directly to the Desktop in all save and open dialogs) and give it a name (if Picture 1.jpg isn't good enough)

6) You now have a JPEG of your Desktop under 100kb on your Desktop (or wherever), this can be attached to a MacRumors post, using the Manage Attachements-button under Additional Options, when you Reply to Topic (or Edit Post). Click that button.

7) You get a pop-up where you can Manage your Attachements, under File to Upload click the Browse-button, find and OK your Picture 1.jpg in the dialog box, and hit the Upload-button. A message will appear: "Uploading File(s) - Please Wait", and after some seconds (more if you're on dial-up) your file will appear under "Current Attachements". Now you can "Close this Window"

8) Finish your post and hit the Submit Reply-button and you have posted your Desktop.

Enjoy... ;)

Yes it's cool. I'm trying to ID which apps the icons stand for. I think I see, Finder, iChat (or some IM app), Address Book, Mail, iTunes, iPhoto, and QuickTime. Not sure about the rest or if I'm even correct about the one's I guessed, but neat style nonetheless.

the order of my dock is, Finder, iChat, Adium, Camino, FireFox, Safari, Addressbook, Mail, iTunes, iPhoto, Toast, System Prefs, Word, Process (although its the icon for activity monitor), Delicious Library (although its the icon for developer's folder), Aquisition, Preview, Quicktime, Calculator, Applications folder, Trash

Can you guys recomend a good web site for 1024x768 wallpaper?

that is a pretty standard size, you shouldn't have trouble finding something. (plus, if the size is only slightly off, setting your desktop display to "stretch to fit" shouldn't harm the quality in most cases) just surf around (goggle images perhaps) play with search entry phrases... I usually stumble into images that I use for my desktops on accident.
DigitalBlasphemy.com has some intersting desktops.
good luck.

I made it myself. I'll post a higher res file of it sometime. I think it's actually 1152x864 or something like that with a little fake dock frame at the bottom. I wanted to use it in OS9 at work... Do you want the doughnut icons too? Not sure how to post those??

That's funny. Some people like to use huge desktop icons but really small dock icons. But which one gets clicked on more? I suspect the dock icons.

Same here, thanks. I missed yours (although I've been following this thread), probably because it wasn't uploaded correctly at first. Anyhow, it seems that the sky part has been cropped from your image. Was that intentional?

lol about lacero's comment, i have the desktop icons huge so i don't end up with a cluttered desktop. i think wordmunger mentioned awhile ago that's why he did it but it could have been some other member. i've had them 128x128 since i got a mac which is why my desktop is so much cleaner than it was on xp.
