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.


Post away =]

Keep your images at or under 800 x 600 (you may link to a larger picture but don't post it here), no one likes to have to scroll all around a window to see a picture.

WOW. so Just today i discovered the wonderful world of themes and icons and adium... all thanks to the original Desktop Customization thread... holy crap I'm just embarassed! Needless to say I've spent the last 5 hours at least messing around. So this is what I have so far...

Hhhmmm it wouldn't add it as an attachment so here is a link

I'm also have a question or two... I'm using candybar and for system icons and volume it went fine, but the application icons won't change. What am i doing wrong?:p

The black Dock icons come from these sets (http://interfacelift.com/icons-mac/artists.php?id=1108).

The iPod folder icon comes from this one (http://interfacelift.com/icons-mac/details.php?id=1806).

I still haven't got the hang of icons and how to apply them :( I had found some cute flower ones but didn't know how to assign them to certain apps.

Maybe someone can make an icon tutorial?? :black: :dive:

ToddG
01-05-2007, 12:42 AM
Netty ...

You'll need to open the "Get Info" dialog box (by right-clicking/cmd-clicking and choosing that from the context menu) for both the file that has the icon you want, and the file that has the icon you want to change.

http://9x19mm.com/photoalbum/albums/userpics/getinfo.png

Begin with the file that has the "new" icon. Click on the small icon representation in the top left corner of the Get Info dialog and then choose "Edit->Cut" from the menu.

Then click on the "old" file's icon in the same location of its Get Info dialog. Choose "Edit->Paste" from the menu.

All done.

If you change them like ToddG and the tutorial suggested all you need to do is highlight the new icon in the get info window, as though you are changing it again, and hit the delete key.

01-07-2007, 07:55 PM
The program to change the theme is called shapeshifter, just search it on google. The dock hasn't actually been changed, it's just hidden until I find a way to disable it totally. The new docks are made with a program called dragthing, its really cool!

I paid for both dragthing and shapeshifter. They have trial versions that are almost as good but they do run out. They are well worth the small amount of money though!

Both are from http://interfacelift.com/icons-mac/. I'm sorry, I don't have either of them saved on my computer otherwise I would have just emailed them to you, so you're going to have the annoying task of looking through the whole site!

That's Adium. www.adiumx.com not iChat.

where can i get the weather on my desktop?

it's a yahoo widget, called widescape weather. i played with the color and background a little, and hid some text by "pushing" it off of the screen, then set it to the desktop; it doesn't float or anything.


that's awesome.

it sure is! one of the nicest smallframe vespas i have ever seen. built by a german guy. those germans are nuts about tuning old stuff (vespas, air-cooled volkswagens, etc. check out www.germanlook.com to see some slick race/porsche inspired vw's)

You know Mac OS X has that built in right? Just press Command + Option + T (or Special Characters from the Edit menu).

That's cool didn't know about this, thanks. I was afraid it wouldn't work with the French keyboard layout. It's a bit trickier to use than PopChar or maybe I'd have to get used to it.

I want to know how this image was created/presented - not the desktop the idea of placing inside an iMac.

Anyone know how to do this? I mean has this been done automatically by some software or do you just get a mac screen and edit it in your application of choice to include in this case a desktop image?
