Forum rules
Any show offs - not hair related - go here!

1) You must keep posts PG13.
2) If your pics are likely to be considered a little 'saucy' (sexy / suggestive shots are fine- so long as they are arty!) put NOT WORK SAFE/ NWS in your title.
3) When replying to a post, remember this is NOT the critique section.
4) Comments like " I love your eyes/ my god you are hot" are not helpful! Include them but please comment on the item/s being shown off too!
5) This Show Off section is only for showing off non hair related products, not making sales. Please make no references to eBay, A and P, or any kind of sales. You may offer the same item for sale in A and P, but no cross linking between A and P and Show Off. Show Off should be a place to comment and encourage each other; we don't want Show Off to become a billboard for sellers.

Show Off your Desktop Wallpaper!

Post by VixenSingsBlack » Thu Apr 28, 2011 7:52 pm

I think it's quite fun to get a look at people's computer wallpapers; it can also lead to finding some neat artists/photographers we've not known of before.

Mine:

This was just from some random wallpaper site, so I've no idea who took it/styled it. And yes, my desktop is incredibly clean, NO FILES ALLOWED!! :-P

Mine is a picture Liz Sterry drew for me. I'm not showing it though, as it's my next tattoo

Mine is a memory of last summer's holiday, Tadjikistan! We had no idea where we were, as we arrived by night, and we got woken up (is this correct english?) by the sun rising (and the cold and the lack of oxygen). That was the best morning of my life. Wanna go back there!

My desktop is cluttered (although it is pretty meticulously organized) so I stick with really basic, tiled backgrounds.

I have Windows 7 Starter on a netbook. There are programs out there that allow you to change it. I cannot remember which I used at the moment...

This is my work desktop. It's a mess, but I know where most things are :P
Also, my computer belongs in a museum. It's still running 2003 software :( :oops:

I'm really dense - how do I take a screen shot of my desktop? (I'm a Mac user if that makes a difference!)

My wallpaper is also the background image for my website. I don't have icons turned on and I don't like anything cluttering up the view.

Find and open the program "Grab." Under the "capture" option at the top, I believe it says screen shot or something to that effect...
