Let´s Have It, Show Us Your Desktop...

Thu Mar 14, 2013 4:50 am

Too many deep topics being discussed. Let´s lighten up a bit and show off our current desktop. I always liked looking at what you guys enjoy seeing...

Here is mine

Well, .my laptop has some hickups. I see the blue screen of death every once in a while and that's why I have this lovely desktop:

Lovely, eh?

But usually I have this picture as my desktop:

Great picture in my opinion. Love the 747-8i

I use a solid medium bluish grey on the laptop.  

The Linux box has a fall scene and some sort of dark blue clouds-and-mountain photo, but I can't find links to the images at the moment.

I'm just guessing, but:
1) Take a screenshot like what you have there.
2) Paste it into photoshop or whatever equivalent you use.
3) Open up the separate images that you want for each monitor and individually paste/overlay them into their correct place.
