why? because i'm bored.

EDIT:

For Mac users:
1) hit cmd+shift+3 (or you can use an app that i really like called Skitch)
2) open the image that pops up on your desktop in Preview, and use "adjust size" in Tools to shrink to an acceptable size.
3) upload to a photo sharing site like photobucket or flickr.
4) copy the direct link to the image
5) click on this button vvv, and paste the link.


For PC users:
1) find a "Printscreen" button on your keyboard (could also be "Prtscr" or some other variation). It should be near the top-right near "delete". Press it. Nothing will happen.
2) Open up Paint, Photoshop, GIMP, or any other image editing program, and paste (edit->paste, right click->paste, or ctrl+v). your desktop image should appear in the program. Resize to an acceptable size, and save as a .jpg.
3) upload to a photo sharing site like photobucket or flickr.
4) copy the direct link to the image
5) click on the button highlighted above, and paste the link.

That is one very cool-looking deKtop you got there!

I would probably have kept mine on the low pro anyway, because it's boring - but yours has certainly given mine a major inferiority complex. I will now sulk and wait for Geordisjd to put you in your place :)

Yeah - I feel almost guilty for not making mine look better - but I'm big on using Spaces and running an app or two in each space either taking up full screen (if one app) or half and half if two, so I hardly ever see it.

There ya go, my best excuse so far. Also the sun was in me eyes when I tried to pretty it up ...

command + shift + 3 will save it to a file on your desktop.

there is also a utility called "grab" if you need more advanced options.
