A quick search for pink desktop wallpapers will yield many hits and thousands of websites to browse. However, the images on these sites are typically stock images taken from websites that you would never think would use such a color combination. While some websites have the actual pink color in the image, most others have just a light pink background with white writing or artwork. This article will focus on how you can make your own pink computer wallpaper using images that you find on the Internet.
The first thing that you need is an image that is at least five hundred pixels in width and twenty-four pixels in height. An image that is too small will look fuzzy, while one that is too large will be distracting and potentially slow down your computer. The next step is to open the graphics program that you use. There are many tools available, but the one that I prefer is Adobe Photoshop as it is simple to use and it is free.
Once you have Photoshop loaded up, you will want to open a new document for your layout. Locate your image and then click on the tool menu. You can choose from several different options such as changing the size of your image, adding a border, or altering the color. The most important option is to change the size of your pink desktop wallpaper. Typically, you will want your images to be between forty and sixty pixels in width. You may even want to increase this size if your computer is being used for other purposes such as a game console.
After you change the size of your pink desktop background, you will need to locate your images. Since your selection was already created by Photoshop, you can right click on the image to choose save as and then name your selection before saving it. You will then be able to find these images on the desktop of your Mac OS X machine.
If you wish to change the color of your wallpaper, simply locate the picture in your document, open the Properties, and then click on the “colors” tab. You will then be able to select a new color from a variety of shades and hues. Be sure to view your selection before selecting a new shade as there are many different colors to choose from. If you do not like the shade of pink that is currently selected, simply select another image until you find the color you want.
Installing pink desktop wallpapers can be quite easy. Since they are usually free, there is no reason not to download several to see what looks best on your computer. Even if you find a pink wallpaper that does not meet your needs, it is easy to download another that does. In addition, once you have found the perfect pink wallpaper, you may want to install several so that you always have a nice new look in the background of your computer.
