How is that iPhoto2? The icon for iPhoto has not changed in the new revision and there's not enough info in that thumb to show an iPhoto 2 window.

Clue us in?

Here's a screen shot... My GigaBook docked with a Cinema Display.

Original resolution is 1600x1024. It's reduced by 75% to save bandwidth.

I like to keep things clean. While my desk may be a mess, my virtual desk is neat & tidy!

Ok, so I know I've posted here a couple of times now, but I think I'm finally happy with my desktop now...



Hacked lots more of my applications now so less dock icons...

New version of TuneCam is easier to hack as the window comes open, and the settings are saved. I've also taken the Proteus, and LaunchBar icons out the dock too.

Cool! I feel famous! I made pretty much that entire engine's external skin on the computer (Alias on a (shudder) Windoze box). Yes, I work at GM! Here's a desktop picture that I took of it!

use photoshop, if you select »resize image« theres a pop-up menu at the buttom of the dialog, if you select »bicubic« or «bilinear« it’ll get blurry, if you select the other one, just the pixels will be resized.

Thanks a lot Adam. Coming from you that's a big compliment

As for the "pixelated resize", p.h..i...l.. beat me to it. Whenever i want non smoothed resizes i temporally change my interpolation mode to 'Nearest Neighbor'.

Yes, I've been looking for a good wallpaper of the Mustang Coupe GT. That is one sweet-looking photo.

I just enlarged one of the autoshow pictures and photoshopped the background out. I'm at work now, but when I get home I'll upload the jpeg file of it and the others.

PS: I'm not a huge American car fan, but this new Mustang is going to be schweeeet if they keep it close to the concept.

The Cadillac 16 actually gets 20 mpg. Better than most SUVs.

You can get the desktop picture here

The red mustang pictures are nice, but too small to use as desktop pics.

I hope I didn't miss you providing an URL to that background image to someone asking for it already, atleast I couldn't find anything in the thread.

So, can I find that image somewhere?
