    I have three wallpapers (all can be seen linked below). They are too big and stretched out for my MacBook screen. Whenever I set it as my wallpaper a big part of it gets cut out on top. I need to resize them so that they perfectly fit my backbook screen (1280 x 800 I think). Is there a program that will let me do it? Can anyone please do it for me? Is there also a way to remove all those logos and words? Thanks so much.

    You can use Photoshop if you have it, otherwise try GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/), a free and open source Photoshop alternative.

    Hahahaa, those wallpapers are great! heheeee. wonderful.

    Anyway, you can get OS X to do it for you man, just go to System Preferences>Desktops & Screensavers and find the fit to screen from the pulldown menu. That will make the pictures fit perfectly.

    Yeah I tried the "Fit to Screen" option but the picture of the picture got cut off. What else can I do? Thanks.

    The "stretch to fill screen" option in the Desktop System Preferences will do this. The picture might get squished/streteched out of proportion in some way... it's either that or crop it.

    Really? Are you sure you did that right?

    You can crop and resize from within iPhoto. The resizing happens when you export the final image - it lets you select a resolution. :)
