Windows 7: Is there a way to customize a desktop background's appearance more?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64,
Is there a way to customize a desktop background's appearance more?


I recently re-installed Windows 7 on my computer, and I decided to create a new desktop background. I have a really cool Desktop background on my Ubuntu machine, and I wanted to use the same one in Windows. There is a problem, however. I have 3 monitors, and I want to be able to span the image across all 3.

Basically, my setup is a 1280x1024 monitor on the left, a 1600x900 monitor in the middle (the primary screen), and a 1280x1024 monitor on the right.

Using the Tile function, I was able to make the background image (a 3648x900 image) span across all 3 screens... Kinda.

You see, the original image ( spanned perfectly in Linux with no hassle.
However, spanning that image in windows resulted in this:

Not exactly what I wanted.

So I tried to create the same image, except at a resolution of 3648x900 (

And that resulted in this:

Based on the 2nd image I linked, I think you all know what I am trying to do. Is there any way, whether it be through windows somehow or a third party program, to make the image do what I want it to?

I'm up to try anything, as this will be a good learning experience for me.

Thank you for helping!
