S

I looked up "dual display desktop wallpaper" and found a site with the right aspect ratio and I just cut it in two using photoshop. Then, with the diplay plugged in and extended desktop mode on, you just open up "Desktop and Screensaver" in the System Preferences and apply each one to the separate monitors. "Desktop and Screensaver" opens a window on each monitor with settings for each.

This question was posted in the February Desktops, but since March seems to be replacing the Februaray, I will re-ask the question.


I was looking for some of the dock seperators that have been shown in some screenshots and was provided this link (http://www.clankwerks.com/dockspacers.shtml).

Now I'm probably missing something stupid, but what do I do once I've got it downloaded. I did option click on the link and it downloaded into some txt file. How do I make that an icon for the dock?

You just click, drag and drop it where you want the spacer to be placed in the dock...

On that link you posted up above, if you click on it, it takes you to clanwerks, if you click on the dowload dock spacers hotlink, the name of the file is "invisable_dock_apps_yadayada" save it to your desktop and when you unzip it, inside the folder there will be 8 or 9 invisible dock spacers, if you change the view to "list" you'll see them all line up, just click one and drag it down to your dock and drop it where you'd like..

Try it in a different browser than Safari. It didn't work for me in Safari, but it did in Camino.

I figured my question would fit right in here. I have a desktop from August and I havent saved the image file, i just pulled the picture from somwhere and applied it as a desktop. So, how can I save the picture im using as my desktop so i can FINALLY get a nice new background without losing my current background forever?

Thanks a bunch!

I did something similar, using Photoshop, so I'm guessing it's the same technique. Under PS, use the Hue/Saturation sliders (after selecting Colorize) to change B&W to any uniform color you like. Here's my February desktop, as an example.

EDIT: Whoops, I actually went back to look at the picture you quoted, and my original post obviously doesn't apply. That's only for doing a single new color over B&W. To do multiples, I suppose you could do a similar thing, just use a selection tool to highlight the area to be changed.
That'll teach me to blindly reply to posts!

Sorry for the double post, but no room for two images in my first one :)

So, the lasso or magic wand tool does work fine to do colorization as well. I did the following in about 2 minutes, so please excuse the sloppy borders. You can get the gist of it, though, I hope.

Feel free to leave comments here or in Flickr.. yes, I know, it's a boring blue gradient background, sorry :(

(I included Front Row cause I finally got the new version working on my PowerBook after fracking up my menu bar a few times.. plus the icons are pretty ;))

What is that turn dial app for iTunes, how do you get the title of your song in the bottom of the screen....I actually like your background (and no I'm not kidding)

I think that dial app might be a Dashboard widget set to his desktop, but I'm not sure, whatever it is, it's really cool!

I'm guessing it's Quicksilver with radial menus (http://www.ff00aa.com/en/space/2006/01/01/170945/).

Ha, it does indeed look like it. Sony also has a moving version of this image as their commercial for the Bravia LCD TV line. I have yet to figure out whether the balls were animated in afterwards or whether they did this for real. If they did, it must've made one hell of a mess :eek:

Edit: here's a link to the commerical (kind of crumby quality, but you get the idea):

I don't remember where, but there is a very high quality version of this online somewhere. I think it was the Sony site, but I can't remember where I got it. It was even encoded in H.264 I believe. Very cool commercial, ans yes, it was real!

Thanks for the comments everyone. I'll try answer as best I can:

1) The iTunes menu thing are Quicksilver radial menus. You can find a good tutorial for doing it here: http://www.ff00aa.com/en/space/2006/01/01/170945/

2) The iTunes now playing info is a program called SizzlingKeys (http://www.yellowmug.com/sk4it/)

3) Adium is the latest build of Metal Adium v. .89 (http://metal.adiumx.com)

4) The Finder icons are a combination of Minium (http://www.rad-e8.com) and some other random ones I've found over the net. If you have a specific icon request, I could probably find out.

5) Yes, it is Front Row running on a PowerBook. Front Row ITSELF is NOT illegal (as it is made freely available as a download on the Apple site), it is the enabling of it that is questionable.

I think that pretty much covers it. Thanks for the comments.

Any chance you could find out what set the music and movie icons in the finders side-bar are from?

Kurt871
Mar 6, 2006, 08:12 PM
Bubbasteve: Haha, thanks ;)

Glenn: The "Music" sidebar icon is from the Agua icon set. You can find it here: http://www.iconfactory.com/SearchListing.asp?searchid=16196&query=agua

The "Movies" sidebar is from an icon set called LCDized. You should be able to find it here: http://www.macthemesforums.net/viewtopic.php?t=1547

yeah thanks a lot!!

but how i keep that transparent window thing up all the time? i only see how to do it for 15seconds

Kurt871
Mar 6, 2006, 09:31 PM
It should stay up unless you click on another window. The only thing I can think of is maybe that some other app is trying to steal window focus. Also, make sure not to hold the trigger (button combo) down, just hit it and leave it. Hope that helps a little.

you are right, here is the site

http://www.bravia-advert.com/index.html

they have it high res in h264, including making of the video, and video of Jose singing the wonderful song
