Desktop backgrounds

Unread postAuthor: Pete Zaria » Sat Apr 28, 2007 7:10 pm

I just grabbed Msft's wallpaper changer powertoy on my windoze XP box ( you can get it at http://windowsxp.mvps.org/wpchanger.htm It just rotates your desktop background at a set time interval - I have mine at every 15 minutes) and I'm putting together a folder of cool wallpapers to have it cycle through.

Post your favorite background or two. I bet we'll get a cool collection going here. Please don't bother posting images too small to be used for a desktop background.

If you're not sure how to post an image:

Go to http://imageshack.us/ . With the "image" circle selected, click the Browse button and browse to the image on your PC. Then click Open. Click Host It!
The file will now be uploaded. When it's done, you'll see a page with some links. Copy (highlight it, then Ctrl+C) the one that says "thumbnail for forums 1" to the clipboard and paste (Ctrl+V) it wherever you want the image to go (such as, in this thread!). Here's what you end up with:

Image

Clicking the image shows you the full-size version.

Let's try to keep things within a PG13 rating (no full nudity anyway...), and host the images on other people's severs (such as imageshack or easyshare, not the spudfiles server) so we don't get this thread closed.

Here's a few more of my favorites:

Heh. Ive had webshots for a while now. Its basicly the same thing for what I can tell. Ive collected over 200 wallpapers so I couldnt really give you a favorite.
I mainly have a huge amount of cgi images and fractals with
probably 50-60 other random images (cars, landscapes, funny stuff, guns, game screenshots, galaxies... oh and castles and dragons ;) )

(edit: btw I have a couple of those exact same women too pete)

@_Fnord,
The reason I don't like webshots is that A) it has spyware in it (any good antispyware program will tell you this) and B) it's a ram whore (it uses a surprisingly high amount of memory to run in the background all the time - your computer actually runs noticeably faster without it running). Try the XP powertoy instead, you'll like it.

Post a few of your favorites of your 200 desktops, man! I love fractals, too.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

Ive run spybot, adaware, pestpatrol, avg, highjack this, pcdoctor or whatever, and a couple others, and never found anything. I have a really old version so maybe it was before they started putting crap in it.
Also, for me it uses about 10-15 megs of ram, which isnt too bad. Ill still try wpchanger though.

Ill post some pics eventualy, I log in on my dads computer so Im too lazy right now.

Mine's a bit more artsy, I used to rotate between
these (go to the "download section") but this is what it currently looks like:

I usually use pictures of space... it has to be dark or it annoys my eyes
