    Please refrain from quoting images. If you want to see the picture that a post is referring to, you can press this button:

    For large images, please use [/SIZE][/B] tags rather than plain old [img] tags.


    [b]Try to include links to the full-size original in your first post so that people can download it if they want. This will help stop the hundreds of "link please" posts.

    If you can't/don't want to share (for example your own work), that is fine but please state that in the post when showing your desktop.[/b]


    Many members here will either be displaying their cover art using [URL="http://www.sophiestication.com/coversutra/"]CoverSutra[/URL] or [URL="http://bowtieapp.com/"]Bowtie[/URL]. In addition, the members with a lot of text information on their desktops are using the [URL="http://projects.tynsoe.org/en/geektool/"]Geektool[/URL] preference pane. Sweet Geektool scripts can be found [URL="http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=628023"]here[/URL]!

    Basically please try and provide as much information as possible about your desktop and setup as there will no doubt be questions asked so best to get the information down first time.

    Your date/time widget compliments your desktop really nicely.

    Been messing around with it all morning. Not quite done with it yet thought... Most of the ideas came from Kardashian's walls.

    Wall: Don't have a link, it's on deviantART somewhere.
    Bowtie: Zukunft Plus


    Ya I uploaded the original here.

    If you let me, I will make some suggestions:

    Change your Dock, a brighter one will work better with your wallpaper, a gray one may be good, I recommend: InfinityDOCK by Alex 'art-Styles' Ribsam.

    You may want to use DragThing to make your 32px icons like Kardashian's.

    Don't you mind on getting a theme? Mobital is cool. Use Magnifique to apply.

    What about your menubar icons ? Try iAndrew's. They are avaible on MacThemes.

    Finally, you could use less darkened icons, so you can match them with the dock and wallpaper.

    I hope I've helped you. Mostly things I've suggested are avaible on Macthemes and Deviantart.

    At last, can you send me your hard drive icons ? :D


    Nice desktop! :)

    My work computer. My laptop hasn't changed, I'll post it when I (inevitably) do change it. Uploaded original, it's 1600x1200, so I modified the size slightly to fit the display on this iMac.

    Ya it is. It's called Bowtie.

    The theme is called Zukunft Condensed White. You can find it on DeviantART.
