    Hi, after hours of searching for a wallpaper, I found one but
    in the upper right hand corner when you enlarge it to save it,
    it has the URL printed on it. I would love to be able to have
    it, but I don't have any photo shop, etc. software at the moment.

    If anyone can it would be wonderful, or if anyone knows
    where I can find a similar photo?? I use the 1024 x 768 size.

    p.s. when I save it in the smaller version, you can see the
    small square pixtels, and it's distorted.

    See if this will do. Download the attachment. Then go to the site, right click on the picture & choose save picture. Then drop it onto 'convert'. Then see how that new files goes as the wallpaper.

    When I drop it into "convert" it crashes the browser
    ( I.E. 6.0 ) and I get that "send error/don't send" report message
    and get knocked offline.

    I tried it 3 times.

    Just checking>
    Save the picture to the hard drive then drop it onto covert. Another file should show up in the folder where you saved/dropped it from.
    If that's how you did it then I don't know why IE is crashing.
    Sorry.

    If it's not too late. Try closing IE.

    I got it dropped into "convert" and then opened up the
    J-peg and saved it as "background" and now I have
    9 of the photos as wallpaper instead of one big one.

    I feel so stupid, LOL :D

    Go back to where you added it as wallpaper & select 'stretch'.

    It's a cool little program that 'convert'. Good to hear it did the job.

    That convert is a great program Hipster Doofus :)

    When I read this forum, I often copy and paste threads
    into word pad and file them for future reference.

    I learn a lot here thanks to the nice people like
    yourself who offer up help and time to sort out
    a solution. I've always received answers too,
    this place is cool!! :)
