to be honest i changed my desktop 3 times this month.. lol but i just wanted to make something kinda cool to post b4 i change it again later on in the month..lol i am lucky if a desktop last two weeks, b/c what i want to see changes. also i am a graphic designer (in training) so i work on thinks almost daily. hence the polaroids

I change mine quite often.... If I see something I think is cool, I add it. Recently I turned my photo website into a business so I put up some "designs" for business cards and logos on my desktop so the people around me will see it. (alot of the parents are always looking over my shoulder to sneak a peak at the pictures hoping to see some of their kids..)

Where did you get that itunes album art widget? i've been looking everywhere for a similar widget.

There's another one out there as well, where you can see half of a CD sticking out, can't seem to find it

thanks!

Due to my lack of Photoshop, would someone either direct me to where I can download it free (I've already used up the trial period), or be kind enough to take the time out to make me some custom new Kobhens icons? From what I understand it is a very simple process of using the pre-made template and just changing the text.

Downloading photoshop for free? Sorry but it's against the rules to aid in piracy on this forum. Plus there are thousands off websites where you can download it, just go search.

Photoshop is pretty darn expensive. It's not free by any means.

However, I would recommend Photoshop Elements ($70 at last check).

It does just about everything Photoshop does at a much lower price.
