Just something a little different....

http://files.voidfx.com/2005-02-06.jpg

(Watch out, it's 915kB :P)

Nice Shot Wraith......

Just a little food for thought... :)

If you save the file in MS Paint...It will compress the picture without losing any quality..

It then becomes this size.. 539 KB (552,572 bytes) Almost half the size..

Cheers dude :)

actually, i believe ms paint saves the file with 75% quality

Ya...It might drop a little...

Although I've never seen any difference in the actual Screen Shot...My screens rarely get over 250 K... I many times capture a 1600/1200 shot and with another program...By opening and saving in MS Paint it always drops the size drastically..

I never notice any difference in pic quality..Always turns out great, and alot easier on my host... ;)

I think that it is a real Mac computer... he's been talking for a while about getting one.

If you want to Mac-ify your WinXP based computer, you can always use the FlyAKite program. It uses some modified files to change the look of your computer.

Just out of curiosity, what are the specs on that?

now it isn't a real mac ;)

finder bar can be perfectly a skin for objectbar (by stardock). wallpaper is from mac that for sure and icons look like avedesk desklets.

finally i've recognized the calendar docklet for objecdock :P

looks pretty similar to a mac, maybe a few changes on the dock and 72x72 icons should cheat viewers :D

I saw some pretty nice looking destop designs here.

I'm posting mine now. B)

Note that i'm not using anything fancy. Just the regular things that is available in Windows XP. No plus pack, no StyleXP, no Windowblinds and no Toolbars.

I don't trust those toolbars that want access to the internet (very suspisious :unsure: )
