Thank you, kado897
How did you do that ?
As i said, i upgraded my monitor, from 27" 1920 x 1080 to 32" 2560 x 1440
There are so many wallpapers 1080p. I wish i could do that myself. I found so many nice wallpapers, but they are 1080p only
PS : Do you know how to modify visual styles ?
Thanks again

I actually used Photoshop but you could do it with the free GIMP.

First scale to 2560x1600 and then change the canvas size to 2560x1440.

I don't know anything about visual styles.

Scale to the largest side and crop the excess away,
It's best to start with a high quality image that one was not of the best quality you posted 2.. kb jpeg

GIMP does not scale images well best to use Chasy's draw for that but use resize and not scale in either.

Yea we went through the scale verses resize a while back
Resizing is a pain because you need to save it as another file then open it and crop away the excess but it turns out better,
Corel paint is as good as photo shop in resampling images to a higher dpi before resizing them to a larger size.
Not to open the whole dpi topic again
