    wallpaper help.

    i'm wanting to create some wallpaper images.

    what i need to know is,

    where can i get winxp images?
    like the one here,(top left).
    preferably so that when i paste into a picture,you can see through the gaps,(transparent background?) if possible.
    cheers.

    f'rinstance what xp images? As to seeing through the gaps, do you use Photoshop?

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
    love, piaqt

    piaqt

    sorry,just got in.

    if you click the link,its top left of picture.I.E the windows logo.

    yes i use photoshop,but i'm not very good with it.
    after about 1/2 an hour i managed to remove all the surrounding images and was left with the 4 flag segments,i then pasted them onto a transparent background.
    so,i can now paste the flag logo on to my pictures.(thats what i wanted to do)

    cheers.

    well for more basic stuff i would suggest Jasc paint shop pro ( http://www.jasc.com ) .. it gets the job done very nicely and is a hell lot easier to use

    i have that,but use it less than photoshop,it looks more complicated.
