WELCOME TO MY DOWNLOADABLE DESKTOP GALLERY. I HOPE YOU ENJOY VIEWING THE IMAGES.
These images here have been formatted for use as your computer desktop background. They make unique wallpaper or screen savers and you can enjoy these images each time you turn on your computer.
You will notice that with many images the center of interest is shifted toward the right side of the picture. This is done to allow space for your desktop icons to stack on the left without interfering with the center of interest. If you decide to purchase and download one for your computer you should read the following about size.
Computer screens come in many different sizes so I provide desktop images in two different sizes or aspect ratios in order to fit a wide aray of computer display screens. Before you download a desktop image, pay particular attention to the aspect ratio of the image and purchase one that is close to the aspect ratio of your computer screen. The aspect ratio is a fancy term for the relationship of height to width. If you download an image with an aspect ratio that is too different from your computer display, the image will be excessively distorted when you fit it to your desktop screen.
To determine the aspect ratio of your computer display, measure the height and width of the screen surface then divide the long side (width) by the short side (height). For example, my computer screen is 17” wide and 11.5” tall. When I divide 17 by 11.5 I find it goes in 1.478 times. This means the aspect ratio of my screen is 1 by 1.478 which can be shown as 1:1.478. Many of my desktop images have an aspect ratio of 1:1.5 (shortened to 1.5) and these images look fine on my desktop because 1.478 is close to and could even be rounded off to 1.5.
It’s not all that complicated. As a rule of thumb, if your computer display has an aspect ratio of 1:1.33 or less, chose a desktop image with an aspect ratio of 1:1.25 (shown as 1.25). If your display screen has an aspect ratio greater than 1:1.33, chose a desktop image with an aspect ratio of 1:1.5 (shown as 1.5).
CUSTOM SIZING: If your computer screen is substantially different from any of these aspect ratios, you can email me through this website and give me the dimensions of your computer display and I will attempt to make a custom size for you. There is a $5.00 fee for custom sizes but you are not obligated to purchase it if you don’t like how it looks after I post it in the gallery.
A WORD ABOUT PROTECTING MY IMAGE RIGHTS: I am in the photography business and there is risk when I allow people to download my image files. The image file is my “negative” and a photographer won’t be in business long if he sells or gives away his negatives. To protect my image rights, I reduce the file size of desktop images so they look good on a computer screen but won’t make a good printed image. Don’t purchase and download a desktop image with hopes of producing a quality printed image like you can with the images in my other galleries. I also put my logo somewhere on each desktop image as a reminder that I own the commercial rights to the image. Accordingly, you must agree not to share (give or sell) the image file to others. You may put it on your personal computer(s) but not on other people’s computers. If someone admires your desktop image, please refer them to my website where they can purchase their own. If you wish to download images for commercial or other than private use, please contact me and we can work out a license agreement and price accordingly.
