I can post a decent desktop.
Until last week all my desktop sported was a light blue background in OS 9.
How sweet can OS X be.
Anyway here it is. It helps me get started in the day…

how can you do the whole clike HERE for full size??\
You need to have two things:
[1] A place for your desktop online, such as at FunMac.com/Macsnaps.com, or DeviantART.com, and
[2] A little knowledge about using vBulletin tags in order to display a thumbnail which gives way to the full image when clicking on it.

To do [1], submit your full res. desktop at either of the sites (Macsnaps.com recommended, since DeviantART is much too large and complicated). To do [2], copy and paste the following text:

url of thumbnail


Replace "((link))" with the complete link to the full size desktop image, and replace "url of thumbnail" with the complete link to the thumbnail.

Now, if you are going to the image tags inside of the url tags, be nice to dial-up users, and keep your thumbnails under about 250KB. Otherwise, just post the full image.

You know, I don't like to quote myself, but:


...copy and paste the following text:

url of thumbnail

Copy and paste that one line of text as is into your post. That's it... until you get to here:


Replace "((link))" with the complete link to the full size desktop image, and replace "url of thumbnail" with the complete link to the thumbnail.

Just try doing that once to see if it works, and if it doesn't, then start again.

It might take some practice, but "don't have a cow" if you don't get it the first time.

Yeah, i know. I just threw it up there last night and didn't bother to photoshop it yet.

Ok i worked on it a little. The problem is there isn't much to crop so i had to stretch it some. I tried just stretching the right side that didn't include her, but it looked too skewed. I reposted it.

You can find icons from places like http://www.xicons.com or http://www.iconfactory.com To install them, choose "Get Info" from the actual icon, then copy the image. Then do "Get Info" on any of your drives, etc. and you can copy and paste the icon. (if that makes sense :o )

Yeah you can. When I span on my monitors at my desk, the wallpaper is different for the two. I'm pretty sure it's just in the "desktop picture" pane when you have two plugged in.

Ok, alot of people have great wallpaper on here but you can't do anything with it cause they post a picture of their ACTUAL desktop and not the picture itself. So here is what I propose, either people should just post the picture, or at the very least post alike to the picture. Thoughts?

If you want the picture that someone is using just PM or email them and ask them if they will send you a copy. Most of my desktop pictures are fairly large, and i don't have any space to upload and link them to that is public, and i don't want to set up a place just for the monthly desktop thread. I wouldn't want people to just post a picture and not a screenshot. It is interesting to see what others have in their docks, on their desktops, and in their menu bars.

That's where I'm looking, and I'm not seeing anything. Everytime I change the background, it changes on both screens. However, after clicking the randomize button, they started showing different images. After turning random off, the second display is stuck changing the picture every 5 seconds, and the internal can be set seprately. But, I have no control over what is being used on the second display, it is stuck on random.

FruitMenu, etc. are pretty cool, but you still end up having a thing with a bunch of icons on it taking up screen space. Quicksilver is nice because it works sort of like searchlight will in Tiger. I'd just keep using the dock, it's probably the easiest. And I wasn't criticizing or anything, just impressed to see someone make that many dock icons useful :) :D

I use LaunchBar and I think it's great. It also acts like spotlight will and appears in the top right hand corner of the screen only when you click on it in the dock. But even better you can set it to hotkeys so you don't even have to click on it. Mine is command and spacebar but there are others you can choose from.

The Icon is changed to green using a Shapeshifter (http://www.haxies.com) theme called "Rhapsodized 1.4" (http://www.interfacelift.com/themes-mac/details.php?id=8) in Lime. There's a bunch of others that do it also.

I find Quicksilver works best if you hide the dock icon (I mean that's one of the reasons you got it in the first place) and just use the hot keys to activate the search box. I think the default hot keys is ctrl-space but you can change it to whatever you want, I like command-space, and then you just type the beginning letters of the app you want to open. Play round in preferences to get it how you want, hope this helps!

The app is called 'Grab' by the way and it's located in utilities. It'll let you take photos of individual windows and stuff like that as well.

If you press command + shift + 4 and then press the space bar you can take photos of individual windows too.

Krimson,
Where is that?

-----

I redid my desktop and cleaned out my dock. Loaded up QuickSilver and Fruit Menu, set up Shape Shifter and Candy Bar. Not sure I'm loving the not so easy access to my apps. But I'm trying it.

I see lots of others with lots of icons in their docks....hmmmm......just kidding :p

Haven't had a new 'top to share for a while, but the honeymoon trip to Hawaii changed that. This is a photo I took of the King Kamehameha statue in Hawi on the Big Island.

That would be system pref-international, and you check on show input menu in menu bar.

this has probably been asked 1,000,000 times, but what is that program call where you have the date/temp/calander imbedded in the desktop? also the program with the itunes mini bar on the desktop?

Is there a way to get MSN Messenger contacts imbedded as well?

Thanks

in finder, go to 'view>show view options' and enable 'show item info'. :)
you can then put the label on the bottom or on the right side of the icons, the options are also on that 'panel'.

I'll be doing a side-by-side IBM T221 and Apple 30" under OS X at the end of September when my friend's LCD arrives. For now, someone has asked me to upload my dual T221 desktop. Sorry it's Winblows XP. I left the forum windows up to prove that it's not doctored.
