What's that you are using to show your specs on the wallpaper?

LOL i didn't realize that. x3 That's funny, and he's almost certainly using rainmeter. It's customizable like that.

Does anybody know why my desktop backgrounds might always display grainy and gross even when the image clearly isn't on it's own?
For example, here's a screencap of my desktop
and here's the actual image that I use as a backdrop

Hopefully all the artifacts that suddenly appear come across on these two images
I mean, it's not a crystal clear image to begin with, but the edges are at least clean.

And yes I am self centered enough to always use my own drawings as a desktop background

That's what I thought they looked like. The image I use as a backdrop is a PNG, but I all of that mess appears when it's set as the backdrop (that screencap is a PNG too, so there shouldn't be any jpegs in the process). Does Windows create a duplicate jpeg of the image to display instead of the real thing for some reason?

Oh, and on the topics of desktop backgrounds, I would definitely use this as mine if it were the right size.

that is the right size. 1920x1080. Can be downscaled to anything. do you have a monitor higher than that? O_o

as for your question. i don't think so. not normally. how did you set it as your wallpaper? within firefox, the image viewer? try doing it directly from the personalization panel. O_o

Oh no, the full size image is definitely large enough, I just don't have a way to access it so far as I can tell (they don't provide a link or anything and it doesn't have the little "download" thing on the side that would display the full sized image).

It's not a big deal if I have to live with a slightly processed background image, it's just it ain't pretty.

It's gradient-y. It could be expanded with some work in some image editing software. o 3o But does the license of the original thing allow it? (creative commons attribute *?)

There may be some scale issues, like I'm pretty sure Larxene is of the same height as Sora, but it's still an awesome group photo.

This one is great too:

Well, by background I actually meant Rainmeter skin.
... I wasn't thinking clearly, apparently.

But thanks for the info!
