    So what does your desktop look like? Post a thumbnail and/or link to a full screen shot. Don't insert the full-sized image into the thread cause it will lag Jake's site. Host the image somewhere else.

    Here are mine:

    //edit: yeah, the desktop pic is actually a screensaver, it looks massively cool. the saver is AbstractMotion, used to use a script to enable it as desktop, now i use FackBore Effects, cause it rocks. you can find both on versiontracker.
    i'll have XP and linux shots in a few months i think, gonna build the comps soon enough.

    OS 9 here, I would turn Kaliedscope on, but that has an extension conflict with AIM.

    Run grab in OS X. (In your Applications | Utilities Folder) Save the file, then open it and export as a JPG file. You can upload it to iTools or a web site, etc... Then post the link. To make a smaller version of the image you need an image editor like PhotoShop, etc...

    Here's a shareware editor to use if you want:

    He wants to know how to make a pic, not host it.

    command+shift+3 makes a screenshot on your desktop. Take it into some graphics editing program and resize and save.
