    Anyone here takes pictures for your PC desktop wallpaper? Not just using one of your photos, but making an effort to create a background as a purpose?
    Am I weird? :) I was sitting at my desk today and got bored looking at my desktop background on the screen again. I was about to log on to digitalblasphemy.com and get something new or browse for a good picture of a motorcycle as usual, but decided to make my own. Quick look around the desk found a blank DVD-R and on of those little bags of silicon balls that are included in electronics packaging to absorb the moisture.

    The desk lamp provided the lighting and here is result - my PC got the new look!

    I have never actually shot a photo for my desktop. I usually just use a random photo or use one from one my frequented site when they make a new one.

    I might have to take this on...

    I don't purposefully take pictures for my desktop background, no. Sometimes I use my own pictures and sometimes I find cool ones on the internet. All all normally automotive or boat related.
    But I did get bored one night a few months ago and did this

    Took the picture at the Rolex Vintage Festival at Limerock Park in Connecticut.

    But its starting to get boring so I need to find something new, or make something new.

    I have Desktop Wallpaper Master which changes the wallpaper at intervals and simply use my photos. I've never set up a photo specifically for creating a wallpaper. Most of mine are of the kids/family/dog.

    I used to always just use one of my favourite photos as my background. Lately though I've just found images on the web to use.

    For a while I was using this one:

    The background for my PC is just a black screen. I don't really find it attractive for my PC to have a picture for a background because I"ve got random files everywhere.

    My mac always has a picture of mine for the background. Leopard showcases the background really well.
