    Thanks for the directions. Makes sense now that I've read it. Off to check it out.

    Thanks Dona for answering Pam's question. I always start out with a template and change it up but then I have the right size to start with. I'm loving the different desktops this month. Thank you all for joining in!!!

Then, make the new file in Photoshop or PSE be that size in pixels, at 300 dpi. After finishing the desktop layout, you can downsize a flattened copy (jpg) that is 72 dpi and about 800 x 500 pixels to the gallery.

    Here's my desktop for this month:

    One more thought....if you've never done this before, think about where your icons are on your computer....then position everything to the opposite side so you can still see your folders and stuff. I have a Mac at home but a PC at work so either I create 2 different desktops or just live with not having a clear view of my folders. Just a thought.

    Well for some reason I couldn't upload my new desktop to the gallery, so here it is from Photobucket (I used Petcetera by Studio 4 Design Works and an alpha by Julie Bullock)


  7. ok here is mine. Thanks for a fun challenge.
