Windows 7: Pastel Wallpapers?

Pastel Wallpapers?

Most of the wallpapers I see with Windows7 Themes are way too dark. The Explorer window white background glares in contrast. Are there any nice pastel wallpapers?

I'm using this one I made myself. But I'm bored with it. But I'd still like something in the same color range. Not dark purple, black, blood red etc..

Something like this any good? I made them a while ago to go with a theme.

Thanks for the reply. Still a bit dark. For the time being I'm using a Photofiltre texture sized to my screen res.

One thing that's frustrating. I have a bunch of fractal flames I did. But if I try to take them off the black background, they look like crap. I like the one below a lot. But I can't hack working on such a dark background. Don't know enough about layers to change the background without messing it up.

The fractal flames look too cool to ignore. Guess I'll have to get used to the black background. I'm running one I did now called Peacock Wave.

I'm still running the old 4:3 CRT monitor so that's why my stuff tends to be 1280x1024

Thanks for the response. What I'm doing now is using fractal flames but I'm trying to set Explorer background to a custom color. So far all the online tips and utilities that claim to do it don't work. The applications have the new background color. But Explorer keeps coming up white!

Pastel print
How do you make the print on the screen darker everywhere in Windows 7? I can hardly read the writing. Is there a setting that I missed out on? XP used bold black on the screen for writing, but I can hardly see the print in Windows 7.

How to change the ugly pastel blue window look-feel?
Hi everyone, I am wondering if someone could show me how to change windows 7's pastel-blue motif in any given window's background. It's easier to show what I mean (please see pic). I'd like a light gray background. I've looked through the advanced options in the theme and it does not appear...
