A little something for your viewing pleasure.
Some of my graphics work will be available on a rotating
This is a slow page to load
because of the thumbnails for each image, please be patient. Thanks
I can't put it all on the server so I'll
change them every so often. They are all in JPG format to speed
transmission. If something disappears that you wanted or if you need a
bitmap of an image for your
wallpaper, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I can locate or convert the image and e-mail it back.

The Full Sized Images
These images are all 640x480
pixels with small spaceships , planets, and other items of astronomical
interest. They begin simply, but gradually add more and more pasted
images per wallpaper. To convert these JPEGs into Bitmaps
that Windows can use for wallpaper, I recommend L-View Pro
as a good image manipulating graphics program. LView Pro Home Page
is the link. They have a new version out and I will be buying a copy of
it soon. I have used the free trial versions of L-View in the past, and
have found it to be an excellent program for changing image formats
without loss of detail.
These images were all pasted
together VIA a copy of Micrografx Picture Publisher LE that came with
my Mustek scanner. Its a good general scanning, image viewing,
paintbox, image manipulation sort of graphics program, but it isn't
without it's faults. I can only scan 4, perhaps 5 images in any one
session before the computer locks up and has to be rebooted. It also
refuses to recognise the existance of my printer- no matter what
settings are entered into its preferences. On the few occasions that it
has been tricked into printing, it produces only a thumbnail of the
real image. Annoying, yes- very! But good at what it does
do. I hope to find that the newest version of L-View will enable me to
retire Micrografx to only scanner duty. From the previews I saw on
L-View's new homepage, this already versatile program has been
considerably upgraded. I can't say more yet, but rest assured that I
will update this page when I've used the new version for a while.
