Just wanted to create a placeholder for my August 2008 Schedule Wallpaper. Yes, I did start it a week ago, but between papers and other things, it just kind of fell by the wayside. Regardless, I hope to have it up sometime tomorrow night, hopefully in time for the first pitch of the Marlins game. If not, then definitely when you wake up on 8/2.
What's been occupying my time over the last week? Oh, nothing in particular.
It's done! As you can see, my new favorite Photoshop tool is the Gradient tool, which has been put to great use in the previous two wallpapers. This one is nicknamed "Purple Rising"; as you can tell, the purple is settling over the downtown Denver area...soon it will be impossible to escape the purple!
As per usual, low-quality JPEGs are attached below as previews, with the actual desktops under the previews - simply choose the resolution that fits your computer. A word of caution, though. I discovered with the All-Star Game wallpaper that the JPEG previews contain less color information than their high-quality BMP brothers; this means that the previews looked an awful lot more "yellow" than what the wallpaper actually looked like. So if it's a color issue that's turning you off, check the full version and you may be more inclined to download :) . Also, these take forever to download. It is worth it, trust me, because the picture will come through clear and not grainy, but it will take ages. Let me know if you have any troubles.
And please leave comments if you like it or don't! I'm still playing around with the calendar...this month it's two rows again, but the days of the week are now above each box for reference. Also, I made the logos a bit smaller this time around.
Anyway, happy wallpaper-ing! And Go Rockies!
