    What image is on your desktop? Are HTFers Microsoft-stardard tile types? Do we have pictures of your kids? Our pets? Our kids with our pets?

    My studio computer is the new teaser poster for Transformers. My laptop is a gorgeous full-screen shot of Serenity from Digital Brown Coat.

    Edited to add hyperlinks!

    I cranked up the specs on Tomb Raider Legend to it's Max and took a screen shot of Lara Croft. It looks BEAUTIFUL on my 1920x1200 widescreen laptop.

    The BMP is 6MB, so I couldn't post it on Photobucket, so the above link is to a JPEG. Also, it looks like Photosbucket shrunk the image to 960x600 (instead of 1920x1200) [​IMG], but it still should look pretty sweet.

    p.s. I had to bring the shot into Photoshop and clean up some of the 3D seams in her legs, but everything else was pure video game. [​IMG]

    Right now I've got a Dracula and Frankenstein's Monster painting by Frank Frazetta. I'm kind of sick of it but I'm not sure what I want to replace it with.

    Just my standard Mac OSX background. The only two icons I have on my desktop are my hard drive icons.

    As a parent I'm required by law to use pictures of my children as my desktop image. In my case it's my two boys standing at the base of Tiger Mountain.

    I typically only use images that I've taken myself (landscapes, wildlife or my kids) but due to the world cup I'm presently using a Go England Go wallpaper with the English flag behind it that I got from the FA website.

    I do that, too. But I'm so fasincated/fixated with the Internet meme and movie "Snakes on a Plane" that I feel compelled to look at the fantastic image non-stop.

    I've got a picture of my home theater, sad really, I could just go down and see it in person.

    At work, I have a photo of my nephew - Well, my brother will be having a kid in a few months, but for now, "Zack" is the closest I've ever been to an uncle. [​IMG]

    I always use pictures I've taken myself. I currently have a sunset picture taken from our hotel room on a trip to Maui.
