Introducing some ground rules, if your image doesn't comply, it could be removed...


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.

Just a quick question, how do you change the size of a picture to 800x600? I don't have Photoshop; is there an Apple native app I can do this with?

Doesn't imageshack resize it for you if you need too?

GadJet: I really like those icons for Word, Excel, etc. What program did you use to manipulate them to look like that?

not manipulated at all, you can find them at Mayosoft's (http://mayosoft.deviantart.com/gallery/) gallery

I can not seem to get the PNG files to copy clearly--when ever I copy the files and past them as the new icon--it has some grey/white around the icon instead of the background being clear around the icon. Any help?

I'm curious... I'd like to post my desktop, but it has two (very well known) fully clothed men kissing (not brokeback mountain). I'm guessing that's a lil' too risque.

as long as they aren't nude, i dont think there should be a problem, people post scantily clad women sometimes.

do you have Pixadex? If not it's an icon storage program & you can get it at iconfactory.com (http://www.iconfactory.com/px_home.asp). It will allow you to import the pngs and then export them as .icns. I forgot I had to do that. Hope that helps

Please refer to the screenshot to see what problem I am getting. Do you see the gray/dark colors around the icon? It does not look clear like yours does--and I am using clear dock. I exported the PNGs as ICNS and it still does not seem to make a difference. Any more help?

How do you guys get the backing of your dock to be transparent?

Here goes... I made it with Illustrator and Photoshop after finding a photo on Google I couldn't ignore. Mods, if you feel this is inappropriate, please let me know. hehe.
