In the meantime, my current desktop looks like this:

You know it does...

I didn't see it at first - but my sister pointed it out, and she's right - it's a painted rear.









On second thought, maybe I should forward her the link....:confused:

but i've had a wallpaper changing frenzy this weekend, it's changed already from this now. :p

also - while i'm here - could I make a request for a 'nice' Preview.app Icon...
I've attached what I've currently got - which is just a bit too exposed (yeah - she's got no top on. :o ) but good looking women look great as a Preview icon. :D

Wait, are you asking what icon pack its from? It's called the X Pack. Here's (http://interfacelift.com/icons-mac/details.php?id=1601) the link.

For those of you that have intel macs, transparant dock won't work anymore. I use a combination of Clear Dock and Onyx to get the same effects, though.

TinkerTool (http://www.bresink.com/osx/TinkerTool.html) also lets you place the dock in any corner of the screen that you wish (among other things). It's pretty sweet and handy to have :)

How do you do that!??
I want to know for when I get My mac, BTW can you tell me the links to where you got it??

Cleardock & text icons are the only things that are done with the dock. I aligned it to the left with Onyx (you can do it with cocktail too). To the right of the trashcan or konfabulator widgets, iTunes Bar, widescapeTimeSerializer, widescapeWeather.widget, and then the thing showing album art comes with iTunesBar.

Text Icons (http://www.rokema.com/albert/TEXTCONS.zip) // direct link

ClearDock (http://www.unsanity.com/haxies/cleardock)

iTunes Bar (http://www.widgetgallery.com/view.php?widget=32430) // [skin : Transparent White; included]

widescapeTimeSerializer & widescapeWeather (http://www.widescape.net/widgets/)

the black bar at the bottom is part of the desktop, well actually I EDITED the desktop to have the black bar, which is just a black bar with a gradient in the top to make it look glossy.

align the dock to the left with TinkerTool, Cocktail, or Onyx.

copy & pasted from somewhere else where i explained it :)
hopefully it makes sense

2 valve/cylinder; one larger than the other .... hmm. 1 spark plug/cylinder, no tracks or grooves for Cam lobes thus its a OHV system, is this only HALF an engine block?

If so my guess is a new HEMI - Dodge Charger but I'm not sure if its something else. unless its some OLD honda which I highly doubt.

Unless I am very much mistaken then that is one of the cylinder heads from a V8 (maybe just a straight 4) - those are inlet and outlet valves you are looking at with a spark plug (or maybe injector) showing too - the exhaust manifold should directly connect to that (when its the other way around)

Saw lots of ZO6's, big parts going together not engine assembly. The Cadillac two seater is also made there. Saw lots of snoozing assembly line workers too. Made me wonder:confused: .

I'm sure I'm missing this somehow, but how do you get the custom icons? I'm trying to turn the Macintosh HD icon into the MBP icon and it's a little difficult. :(

It's a .sit file, if anyone wants to know.

iamhammill
Aug 8, 2006, 05:57 PM
Unzip that sit file first (Stuffit works) then click CMD + I on the little icon. Once you do that click on the little preview of it in the upper left corner. Once that is highlighted, copy it (CMD + C) Find your Hard Drive, highlight and do CMD + I. Click on the little preview and this time paste (CMD + V)


Think that's how you do it. If not, try the app CandyBar.

Updated:

Got the rotation going, and some new icons. (CLICK FOR FULL!)

It's good to see the text-icons floating around, I'm a fan of them on my system. I like the idea of maybe changing the brightness of some of them, to act as another delineation between apps.

Take a screenshot that you'd like to use, then drag the image from the desktop onto the 'frame' in snapshooter. Then choose 'export to' from the menu and navigate to the pictures. There will be two pictures, one that ends in "full" and one that ends in "border". Upload to the hosting site of your choice, and post links here. Put the URL for the full one as a link to the image of the border. Done.

OK, you need to change the url you're using here to be the url link for the border. It should be an option on the imageshack page.
What you should have is something like this:


[*url]http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/2902/border1dq5.th.jpg]
[*img]http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/2902/fullscreen1dq5.th.jpg][/img][/url]


I've added the *s so the code displays correctly here, but you should remove them from in front of url and img.

Your default 'my folder' should be your pictures folder

OK, you need to change the url you're using here to be the url link for the border. It should be an option on the imageshack page.
What you should have is something like this:


[*url]http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/2902/border1dq5.th.jpg]
[*img]http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/2902/fullscreen1dq5.th.jpg][/img][/url]


I've added the *s so the code displays correctly here, but you should remove them from in front of url and img.

Your default 'my folder' should be your pictures folder
ommmg i have no idea what im doing wrong! i keep tryin but nothing works.

Just take the *s out of the URL and IMG tags and change the address for your own.

Perhaps not the exact forum to ask for some help but it does apply to desktop/wall paper. Here goes. I've got a picture that I want to use as a desktop. The subject is on the right side of the picture and I'd like to reverse/mirror image to the left as I have my desktop folders predominately on the right side. I've tried to change it by opening with Preview and then "horizontally reverse". Then I save it and when opened again nothing has changed. I've tried to save it to a different folder and under a new name and even as a different type of pic, ie a TIFF as opposed to a JPEG, still "no joy". Any help would be appreciated:)

BTW, the only editing programs I have are iPhoto and Preview. Yeah, pretty weak:o . Cheers

For some reason, whatever you do in Preview, editing wise, only takes effect in Preview.

Without using Photoshop, All I can suggest is flip it using Preview, then take a screenshot of the wallpaper (Apple key, Shift + 4). This will be saved as a jpg or png on your desktop (Picture 1) - simply drag this into a folder, rename to whatever you want - and set it as a wallpaper. :)

righty O, here are two i'm currently switching between this august. i'm a little late off the mark this month because i was away in asia (see one of my previous posts. i would have done this yesterday, but i spent about 3 hours standing next to a baggage carousel at heathrow...watching that same orange bag.....go round...and round....and round....

:eek: :D

both pics were taken by me in july. the A380 is F-WWOW, the first one built, at farnborough IA2006.

the second is of a generic Virgin 747 departing heathrow on 18th jul. Please excuse the quality of both pics. Photobucket is being screwy with me and the website freezes if i try to upload anything bigger than a flea.

enjoy. S

Question: I keep making screenshots with Snapshooter. Then I post the previews as preview images in my Deviant Art gallery. How can I set them up so that there's no black border and when you click on the prev. image, it loads fullscreen? It currently looks like this (http://hennings.deviantart.com/), which is not exactly what I want (I mean the top 2 images).
