What particular style are you looking for? I could mention a few, but will rather wait and see what you;d like...

Go through your personal picures, make one of them a background. I went to the Atlanta Zoo, a few months ago Had a wonderful time. I happened to take a shot of a Panda, really came out great. Everytime I use my computer I see the Panda and it brigns back great memories. My Icon for this site, picture of whales, from the same zoo, again great memories. Its your computer and your choice. Do what is best for you. I just wanted you to have as much input as possible

Have a great Holiday Season, New Year and most of all enjoy the greatest OS. It really rocks, doesn't it.?

Ain't that the truth! Out of 133,000+ (51.5GB) images that I've collected over the years, it's the personal ones that mean the most. I currently have a picture of my cat (an icon of which appears on the right of my sigpic)
