    How do I use one image as my wallpaper and split it across dual monitors? I did a search but didnt find much. Ive seen a few people do this. Can anyone help?

    You'll need some image editing software, such as Photoshop or Gimp or even Preview will work in a pinch. You need to crop the image to the size of each screen and then save it as two different images. For instance, I have two 1050x1680 monitors, so each image needs to be 1050x1650. Then, you just load them up as you would any other wallpaper in System Preferences.

    STL, huh? Where'd you go to high school? (;

    Ah so thats how they did it. I was thinking there was some hidden setting to just split the wallpaper. Damn

    Actually I am just across the river from STL, on the IL side. Edwardsville, IL here. Where are you from?

    St. Charles...the west side of St. Louis. :) What res are your monitors? I've got a pretty cool image of the STL skyline at night that spans across my two. I can send it if you'd like.
