wallpaper system

Post by Knight Racer » Sat Feb 18, 2006 11:27 am

When I only knew how to use microsoft paint,I was creative and made a system for myself for the evergrowing problem of being bored with a wallpaper for windows.My system was I take a drawing of kitts monitor banks I made in mspaint and have 2 pics up there each week in the area of his 2 screens.Now that I know how to use Adobe Illustrator ,a few web design softwares,and Adobe Photoshop,I decided to upgrade a few old ideas.I remade kitts monitor banks part of the dash and whenever you get bored of what you see inside the 2 screens you simply take the template into ms paint,then you crop 2 pics you want to see in the screens.Save it as your wallpaper each week.

Here is the accurate pic of kitts monitor banks

Thank you.For a w hile there I thought the cactus bush fly by when no one replied.Anyon feel this is difficult to do to cropp over a template and replace the 2 screens?You simply save it as week1 week 2 and so on.You keep a copy of the template and you do it whenever you feel board of the 2 pics.

That'd be quite cool but I think I'm more content with having pics of girls on my desktop than KITT's monitors.

You could always develop this further into a standalone application, where you could load up the program, double-click on the monitor and it'll allow you to look through your PC for a pic that it would then crop/resize to suit the monitor.

Or you could always have a 'desktop of the week' thing going on and have a new wallpaper every week or so for people to download and use.

Nice work though
