Each member can post one desktop in this thread each month.
The desktop cannot be larger than 800x600.
Not only will posting inappropriate desktop pictures get them deleted, it will also get you banned. This includes anything semi-lewd. This is a family forum if it's not PG then don't post it.
Feel free to post the source from which you got your wallpapers, themes, icons, UI modifier apps, etc.

You're supposed to keep it down to 800x600.

Some tools that will help you with that include a program I use called iResize.

Itunes widget is call bowtie and the clock is done with an app called geektool. If you need any help let me know

Corbab

@Ldawg543

All of the clocks, etc. are done with Geektool (http://projects.tynsoe.org/en/geektool/). It can be a bit of a pain to use, but if you find a good site that lists scripts, you'll be good. I haven't tried it, but this (http://www.projectrenova.com/desktop/extreme-desktop-customization) site looks like it has some pretty solid know-how.

The iTunes widgets you're referring to are most likely done with Bowtie (http://bowtieapp.com/). All of the different styles are available with a Google search, and if you've got some HTML/CSS savvy, you can write your own.

Candybar (http://www.panic.com/candybar/) is an application you can use to switch icons (especially the stubborn system ones) and set default icons for new folders, etc. You can also use it for changing the Dock's style. It's not free, but there's a nice long trial before you have to buy.
SuperDocker (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/27054/superdocker) is another Dock editing application. It's totally free, and super easy to use.

You can Google search (or whoever your search provider is) a bunch of stuff, though bear in mind that only some of it works, or all of it works. For me, I've tried numerous codes and got nothing (like that infamous-in-my-eyes Yahoo weather picture!!)

I'm also running an older version of GeekTool because GT 3 kept locking up on my Mac mini. I've yet to try it for my MacBook.

Please. Resize your picture with iResize (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/21187) and repost your entry per administration permission. Or get rid of the photo from wherever you have it uploaded at.

It looks great, and I think there should be a sticky for iPhone/iPod touch wall paper screenshots (especially since iPhone OS 4 is coming up soon here- and heck, why not include the iPad while we're at it). Just a thought, especially since Photobucket exists for iPhone OS.

By the way, is your iPhone jailbroken?

Yes, another thread for iPhone/iPod/iPad wallpapers would be good. And yes, it's on 3.1.2 jailbroken, that's how I have the theme. The benefits of being on jailbroken firmware are endless, but all the extra stuff does make the phone slower. Especially worse since mines a 3G :P. But the pretty icons make up for it :).

It's from InterfaceLIFT: here's a link (http://interfacelift.com/wallpaper_beta/details/1678/walenstadtberg.html) (although their site is extremely slow for me as I write this).

Is it wrong that I immediately recognize a wallpaper from well over a year ago? :Confused:

Edit: And I might as well add mineónice and simple, just as I like it. Just a more recent InterfaceLIFT wallpaper (http://interfacelift.com/wallpaper_beta/details/2226/) and a pretty date thanks to GeekTool (http://projects.tynsoe.org/en/geektool/).
