Downloading Member Images Using the Android OS
Right-clicking (if you didn't already know):
Windows users can use their right-mouse button to speed up many tasks. The term right-click and right-clicking as they are used here, refer to the action of holding your mouse over a graphic and then clicking (and holding) your right mouse button. The options you will be interested in for this site are:
- "Set as Wallpaper"
- "Save Image As"
Downloading The Images:
- The images on this site are in JPG format and are designed to fill your screen. They should not be tiled.
- The download size (in KB) is listed for each image, so you can get an idea of how long it will take to download.
- The width and height of the graphic is listed for each image. I run my computer at 1152 x 864 resolution, so most of the images are in that resolution. If your resolution is set differently, and it probably is, you will need to resize the graphic somehow so it will fit on your screen. There are a number of ways to accomplish this, most of them free and easy.
- You can access the full size version of a graphic by clicking on its thumbnail. When the image is first loaded in your browser, it is sized to fit the width of your browser window. If you are using a Netscape browser, you should be able to select your screen width from the "View At" box on the upper left side of the web page. Select your preference and the image will reload (quickly, from your browser cache) at the size you specify. You can then right-click on the image and select "Set as Wallpaper". .
How to resize graphics to fit your screen:
Mac Users (OS 8.5):
- Windows users select "Stretch" from the "Picture Display" dropdown in your "Display" settings (look in the Control Panel).
- You can grab a copy of Wallmaster or Panorama. These excellent wallpaper managers are freeware and both support image scaling, in addition to many other cool features.
- You can use a commercial image editor/view (Photoshop, Acdsee, Thumbsplus, etc) to resize the image for your wallpaper.
Click on the thumbnail of the image you want for your desktop. Once it has finished loading, click on the image with your mouse button and scroll down to "Save this Image As" in the menu. Save it to your hard drive or your desktop. Next, go to your Apple menu in the upper left corner, scroll down to "Control Panels" and choose "Appearance". Click on the "Desktop" tab. Click the "Place Picture..." button on the lower right and select the location where you saved your desktop image and press "Choose." Then, press the "Set Desktop" button in the Appearance menu. Your image will appear on your desktop. (Note: on Mac OS 8.1, choose "Desktop Patterns" from the control panels instead of "Appearance").
If you are using UNIX, I imagine you already know what to do with these graphics. I have no instructions for you. If you spot something on my site that's difficult to navigate, please don't hesitate to let me know.
