November's Desktop Wallpaper

Hey, it's here! Download November now in one of two looks: Regular or Enhanced. Regular starts out with one of my landscape photos that I applied the Watercolor filter to and using the font, Pristina by the Esselte Corporation, created the latest calendar desktop wallpaper. Enhanced goes a step further with autumn leaves from a PSP tube. While I really like how the regular calendar turned out, I thought it needed a little something extra to give it more "oomph"; thus, the leaves. So I offer for this month two versions of November.

Choose one or both versions from the fourth page of the Wallpapers section. You can either download the image to install later or apply the desktop wallpaper now. Instructions are on each window of the size you choose.

More news: December will be the last calendar desktop wallpaper I'll make. I'm not sure how well these are being accepted because I don't receive any feedback. So instead of me working hard to create these graphics for the public, I'll resume creating them for my personal enjoyment only. But I will continue to make desktop wallpapers in general.

Top Border Backgrounds: Reversed Gradients

Earlier this year I released a group of top border backgrounds with gradient colors. Reversing the graphic so that it starts out with a white or near-white background then slowly transitions to the color is something I've been thinking about doing for awhile. So here it is now.

I hope that for some of my visitors wishing to use a gradient background for their web pages, this selection fits better than what was offered previously.

You can find the reversed gradients on the fourth top border backgrounds page.

Birches, Clouds & Sky: New Desktop Wallpaper

While we are going through another warm spell, I'm releasing this scene on the latest desktop wallpaper of the European birches in my back yard against a backdrop of the brightest blue winter sky and fluffy clouds. But this is not your ordinary photo. I've taken the admittedly plain Jane photo and touched it up with Paint Shop Pro's Virtual Painter. I used the Drawing Effect on Washi paper to come up with this abstract desktop wallpaper rich with textures. I love it and hope you do, too.

Go to the fourth desktop wallpapers page to find the links to four sizes and set or download the wallpaper of your choice. Remember, the wallpapers are meant for your desktop, not for web pages. They are too large, even the 800x600 size, to use for web pages. Not everyone surfs with high speed connections...yet.

The November desktop wallpaper will be released on Thursday. So check back to the web site then.

Cats On A Fence: New Top Border Background!

Latest top border background graphic features sleek black cats scampering across the top of a fence. Added spookiness is the yellow glow emanating from the cats. Just right for your Halloween page or other pages of your web site.

This latest linkware is available to all users, subject to the Terms of Use. Download instructions are on the sample page which is password-protected. The thumbnail sample above doesn't do the background justice, so head out to the fourth page of the top border backgrounds to view the full page sample from the link there.

Happy Halloween, everyone!
