Try Mac desktops (http://www.macdesktops.net/) or Deviantart (http://www.deviantart.com/). Failing that just ask someone where they got it.
And mine is the companion to last months desktop. Yes, that is the Cuban place seen in Die Another Day. And no, it's not in Cuba.

Jesus, I had to do a photoshop job on that, the only one that I found had PIXAR on it, and it still wasn't large enough. What size do you want? I have 1024x768 and a 1440x960 (for the future PB) currently, but I can make any size (Luxo has to stay the same size though) or I can just upload the layered photoshop file if you want.

Here is the original image. (http://rob.sdf-eu.org/macrumors/photos/smg-night-forest1.jpg) (It's @ 1449x1800 so some editing might be needed for desktop use)

I figured you wouldn't want the exact desktop (since its photoshopped for my specific monitor & icons) but if you or anyone actually wants the exact background (@1680x1050) that is in my screenshot, just let me know and I'll upload that too.

Haha, I didn't think I could find the link... buttttt, I'm amazing and I found it. :p (Okay, seriously, I didn't think I could find it again. :o) http://www.deviantart.com/view/25234711/

Wow great thanks devilot. Yeah deviantart has so much great stuff, I stopped visiting the site for a while when they stopped allowing the search function, but just now I see its working again. Now when did that get fixed? Eh guess it doesn't matter its just good that it is back. (I'm not imagining it right? the search function was not usable a while ago right?):confused:

It just turned December for roughly 50 million people and here we are, already at over 100 posts for desktop images given 3% of the total PC population who are Mac users, coupled with the fact probably only 0.013% are MR members, and of which 1% percent post on any regular basis and only about 3% posts in the Picture Gallery forum in this thread, that's quite an achievement.

Pretty standard summer storm. I think this was taken last Saturday - we had a decent one come through and dump all of November's rainfall (61mm) in about 2 hours.

I'm pretty sure there was no major property damage, you should see some of the other ones that are posted. I'll have a link soon.

There was one today that petered out too soon but was expected to bring cricket-ball-sized hail, would've been pretty scary but it fell apart just as it was looking like being a doozy.

OK, they're over at www.darb.net/anonymous

They start at the bottom of page 3 and go onto page 4. If you want them be quick cause the whole lot get dumped fairly regularly. Once I get into town and off the dial up I'll put them up somewhere a little more permanent.

These aren't my photos though so no kudos to me.

I'm afraid don't have it uploaded (I took it myself). I'm thinking of using it in a book, so I'd rather not give it out to people if that's ok, but if I decide not to use it, I'll give you a PM.

As for Adium, it's a contact list style called "Lau" and a color theme called "Lau" :D Actually it's mainly a mix of "Pure Milk" style and "Fresh" colour, with Group Bubbles set (I purposely only have one group), but I tweaked the spacing and used Lucida Grande as the font. Oh, and I used some slightly different greys for the names.

If you know a way I can get in to Adium and find the themes I've saved as "lau" as files, let me know and I'll happily email them to you (or anyone else). Save you having to tweak those other themes.


edit: Never mind, I found them! I can't attach them here though. Diatribe, or anyone else who wants them, if you PM me your email address I'll send them to you. :)

Jesus, I had to do a photoshop job on that, the only one that I found had PIXAR on it, and it still wasn't large enough. What size do you want? I have 1024x768 and a 1440x960 (for the future PB) currently, but I can make any size (Luxo has to stay the same size though) or I can just upload the layered photoshop file if you want.

Can I please have one at 1024x768 and one at 1680x1050 please.

If you cab't be bothered to upload them here, email me at

My desktop is a rotating series of automotive pictures and this was one, for bout an hour. Let me explain. I was perusing NOV desktops and came upon some great auto pics and found the website. Picked up some great stuff. I’m not a RR fan BUT I found this pic and what can you say. Cars and sexy women, it just doesn’t get any better. Anyway, I snagged this one and put it into the rotation. It hadn’t been on an hour when my wife walked in and said, “Rob, no naked women on the computer”. Well, as you can see the young lady is not “naked”. I tried to explain this to my wife and point out to her that the young lady indeed was dressed. Heck, she’s wearing heels and a long coat and sunglasses. Geeeeez. The boss wouldn’t give an inch. So, every once in awhile I bring her back….sigh.

Ok, trying to attach my desktop. Hope this works.

One of several. Still cycling the same ones from last month, but added the lights around the edge with MacLampsX. I like seeing blinking lights on the computer, missed them ever since I moved to OS X and lost Holiday Lights.

I couldn't let you be the only one with your favourite kitchen appliance as desktop image, so I just had to make one of my toaster... :p

It's the first toaster I've ever had that actually toasts the bread the way I want it, and consistently. I really, really like this toaster (;)):
Very nice!

apple key/shift/4 the below F3 then space bar then left mouse click to take a pic of entire desktop :)




edit:

if you dont have iPhoto then open the pic it should open it in Preview: then go to file > save as>Jpeg>Quality select no less than half the quality.. go to the pic and "right" click on it then get info .. pic needs to be no more 241Kb in size ..


edit#2: once your ready to post then below here you should see "attach files" rest is simple :o

no problem .. ;)

hopefully you understood it.. I was going thru the steps from memory/doing it Sametime ..

The preview way is for people without iPhoto like me :o

There's a way to resize the pic in iPhoto but i don't know since i don't got iPhoto..


I got a question on Desktop pic taking:

what is the key combo to include the dock in the pic for posting etc?

Dec 3, 2005, 12:44 PM
mauly, an easier way to do it is to hit "apple + shift + 3". This will save a Picture 1.png to your desktop. You can either open it in Preview and save as a .jpeg, or leave it the way it is. Then goto a site like http://www.imageshack.us and upload it, it will give you the url to post in a forum which will just leave a nice little thumbnail to click on for the full size photo.

Or.. "apple + shift + ctrl + 3" which will copy the screenshot to the clipboard so you can just use preview to "new image with clipboard" and won't have to delete the png file on your desktop after converting it.

thanks roger for the lil app .. :D

its much easier to take pics of the desktop etc.. after i messed with it on dragging the pic off .. then you could use Imageshack to host it. Just make sure the pic is under 1024Kb in size for Imageshack or 241 Kb on here..:o

As for the dock, they are Blank Dock Separators (http://www.maxthemes.com/guistuff/?guistuff=Blank%20Dock%20Separators) from Max Themes (http://www.maxthemes.com/).

Use Dockless (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/18195). The only catch is that you can't access the menubar, or switch to it via Apple-Tab, but with MacLampsX, which I run, you can still customize it by clicking on the bulbs and hitting Apple-, to pull up the preferences. Otherwise you have to turn the dock icon back on when you want to change it. I don't have any need to change it, so it's not a problem for me. (Of course, if you know of any good bulb sets, that could change.)

This one doesn't have the windmill, and shed in it?
Lacero can you post a link? I searched around but couldn't find the one with the windmill, cow and shed.
I do like it though - thanks - I think Will was the original poster!

Actually it is a part of Somatic (http://www.dlanham.com/goodies/soma/) - an icons set/Shapeshifter theme/wallpapers combo (of course you can download each separately) that I'm greatly enjoying these days. :cool:

For the adventurous forum readers, here is (http://dave.typepad.com/dave/2002/10/hacking_ical.html) how to change the icons "the hard way" (BTW the file names are App.icns and App-empty.icns for the standard and "running" icons respectively).
