With this menial screenshot merge, I've found Seashore is absolutely atrocious at handling large resolution files. Yay.

The MacBook's integrated graphics handles secondary displays rather nicely. I don't know how well it'd handle an ACD, but it manages this $5 CRT nicely.

I've expanded my collection of desktops, and plan to continue doing so. The great thing is, it wouldn't take much to change out the symbol, or background color, or any number of changes to all of them in a short time. I'm also looking for more characters to insert, and I'd love suggestions. My favorite thing about them is the Apple symbol stays in one place the entire time, and I keep them rotating every 5 seconds, so they're revolving around the icon.

Just moved to Cardiff by the way...loving it so far.
Cool cool. Cardiff is a great city. I really should change that since I was only there for a few months... But I loved it!

how did you change your dashboard icon???

how did you change your dashboard icon???

Well since they're running Shapeshifter (or some other haxie) I'd guess they've applied it via a theme. Barring that, Candybar makes it easy to change Dashboard, Finder, trash, and other system icons.

Eh, I did. Font's wrong. ;) VERY wrong. Spacing on the dock too, between the left side and the right. Still, pretty convincing.

Still, it is like lipstick on a pig, as kaboutertje noted. :D Gotta get a Mac!

Yeah, the menu bar font is a bit off. I tried the same thing on my PC before I got my iBook, and while it may look a little bit like a Mac, it still works just like Windows... :rolleyes:

Hey guys, any idea where I could find a good Sex Pistols desktop? I've been googling around for something like the Anarchy in the UK cover, but haven't been able to find anything bigger than like 480 x 341 pixels, which gets pretty distorted when set as a desktop. Any idea how i could make that bigger or anything?

Someone on here made it, I got it from their Deviant. The artist posted his own desktop here - I just can't remember who!

The original is 1024x768 and looked dreadful centered, stretched, or filled on my iMac - so I Photoshopped it into a widescreen one.

I created them myself, using Photoshop and Pinki.
However there is a link for some here (http://www.rokema.com/albert/TEXTCONS.zip), which were posted earlier on in this thread, but I don't know thw colours/style of these. If you would like the ones I'm using (light grey) please PM me with your email address and I'll zip them up for you, but they will only have icons for the apps I use.

It's going to be hard, but I'll try. First of all, the wallpaper (http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/1605/deluxiveyh5.jpg). The icon sets are a lot. Some from Milkanodised, some from Pure, the rest I don't know. I basically spent half an hour on interfacelift.com and pixelgirlpresents.com to find whit (preferably) or blue icons for everything. The Adium skin is my own modification of the decay theme. Well, I started off with the decay theme and modified almost everything so it fitted my taste. Some tips:
Make the background the same color as most of your wallpaper, then set down the opacity so far that you can still see the contact names clearly enough. Then choose colors for the contact group letters, and make the status colors dark grey, grey and white. Last but not least, make the list tiny and hide offline contacts.
Do that and fumble around a bit, and you should get a nice adium skin.
