AUGUST Desktops

It's August (1:42 AM) in Sydney, so lets see what people have to offer!

I can't post screenshots from my new PM; When I use Apple's built-in screenshot function and use preview to convert to JPG and get the size as small as possible, its still too large to be uploaded to MR... Obviously I need another screenshot utility.

I'll try to post a screenshot tonight (maybe even when its August here in DC)

Has anyone managed to find 1920x1200 (16:10 aspect ratio) versions of these wallpapers? I have them for my PB but none fit my PM...

Thanks

I think I'm right in saying that the creator of these desktops didn't produce any at resolutions higher than 1600x1200, unfortunately.

I currently rotate 6 different desktops (which mean I'll have to post over two posts), first 5:

Please! You must share! I've just bought a second hand mini cooper! Jet black outside, red leather inside.

I know it's a bad scan of a band I don't even like, but it still makes me laugh. I'll probably keep it for about a day.

This has been my desktop picture for about a month. At first it was incredibly creepy - I'd be working on something late at night, close all my applications, and see this psychotic-looking manimal glaring at me ! Now I've come to enjoy the surreality of animals in formal clothing... or something .

I'm using Clutter to generate the record covers on the left-hand side of the screen. They're not part of the desktop picture, they kinda sit on top. You can double-click on one and it'll start playing in iTunes. Brilliant!
