The Serious FAQ


How do I download the graphics on your page and make them the Desktop Background on my Macintosh and make it a single graphic, not tiled?


On any page that shows a large (640x480 or 600x800 graphic) find one you like and click on that link. The graphic page will be recalled (shown) by your browser. Position your mouse pointer over the large graphic, do a double mouse click. On Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer you will see a menu choice called "Set As Wallpaper". Choose that option and the picture is now your wallpaper. If you would like to save the picture to your hard drive choose the menu choice called either "Save Image As" (Netscape) or "Save Picture As" (MSIE). The graphic is now saved on your hard drive.

Macintosh OS 8 has a new function called "Desktop Pictures". Click on the desktop area and take it from there. For OS's before 8.0 to make the graphic your desktop background without tiling you will need a Shareware program for Macintosh called "Decor." You can get access to downloading sites in a variety of languages on the site. This is the latest Decor 3.04 released in June 1997.

Tons of more information on Macintosh desktop stuff can be found at GUI Junky.
