Windows 7: Dual Screen Image Reversed...how to correct?

Dual Screen Image Reversed...how to correct?

I have my main monitor to the right of my laptop. The laptop screen acts as a second monitor. I just downloaded some dual screen wallpapers. Problem is that the image is displaying the left half of the image on the right screen and the right half on the left screen. Is there any way to reverse the images without changing which monitor is the main screen?

Thanks!
Dave

Right click on the desktop and select screen resolution, then drag the left monitor to the right (or vice versa).

Yeah... that is going to change how the mouse drags though. I just want to change the position of the images. Oh well... I will continue to ignore it.

This looks better if both displays have the same resolution, but should also work on different resolutions:
  • Open the wallpaper you want to use in Paint or other similar program
  • Use selection tool to select the right half of the image, cut or copy it
  • Open another instance of Paint, set the size of new (still empty) image to exactly that of your preferred wallpaper
  • Paste the copied right half of your wallpaper to the left of the new image
  • Repeat procedure with other half of your wallpaper
  • Save the image, replcace your wallpaper with it
Works.

Cool. I hadn't thought of that. I may have to write a program that will do that for me!

One of those things so small but obvious, we don't even think of them.
