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.

I am not currently using DragThing... It is VERY VERY customizable, within DragThing Preferences, Dock Preferences, and Layer Preferences you will find many many settings.

You are probably wanting multiple individual docks, that are set as drawers.

Candybar (http://www.panic.com/candybar/) is what I use to customize my dock and icons. When they upgraded to 3.0 they added a lot of really good features and there are so many fantastic icons all over the web! I love it.

Snapshooter is the program. You'll need to make sure you set it to run in rosetta so it will open. Take your screen shot as your normally would, then drag it into one of the borders/export and you're set. :)

To get the desktop as 800x600 I changed my display to that, is that the way to get the 800x600 size or is there another way.

I did CMD + Shift + 3. Then both screenshots will show up as separate files on the desktop. Go into Photoshop and join them together.
