      Is there someplace or another web site available that one can get a traditional archery picture for a background on my computer other than taking some snap shots myself and tansferring them ? It would be nice to place one of the many covers from an issue of Traditional Bowhunter Magazine on my screen if that is possible….??? Thanks

      Hi Bullseye, welcome to the site. I’ll try to take a stab at this.

      I don’t really know where you would find “traditional archery” pictures for a background unless they are your images. Many images on the internet are copyrighted and you could get in trouble for just using someone else’s image. I give you permission to use one of our cover images, as long it is for your own personal use. It might look funny on your computer, though as the screen is more of a landscape setting and our cover would be a portrait setting. Does that make sense? Tell me which cover you like and I’ll send a jpg file to you.

      Maybe others here know of a good place to get free images. You can try Google Images but again, some of those are copyrighted images. Always best to use one of your own or one you have permission to use.

      I’m sure if you go over to the LW or some other sites and do a search on Wallpaper you will find something to your liking. The only problem is,, it isn’t yours, so ther than aesthetics it means little. I find taking your own pictures more rewarding.

      Go to

      http://www.webshots.com/page/apps?app=footer%20&vhost=www

      I’ve been using this program for several years. It allows you to load your own photos and it changes your background wallpaper on a schedule you set plus it runs through your pictures in a screensaver mode too.

      You can also use Webshots to post pictures on forums too.

      The first picture is on my background today. It is in the Webshots program I use.

      I found these two fawns next to one of our pump structures by the Neosho River the day after the 2007 flood here. It is hard to tell, but where they are laying was covered by 12′ of water the morning before and the river stretched almost two miles to the east.

      I posted these pictures on some forums back then and had a lot of people ask to use them for wallpaper.

      I carry my camera with me 99% of the time because you never know what might show up and want it’s picture taken.

      This feller visited me at my booth at McAlester.

      OK, that’s enough.

      Here is an easier way to make a background withoout any programs to mess with.

      If you just want one picture for your wallpaper just load one of your own pictures onto your computer and bring it up on screen. Right click anywhere on the picture and click “Set as Desktop Background” in the pop up box. Presto……..Instant Wallpaper. When you want another picture for a background just repeat the process.

      my desktop background changes almost as often as the shirt on my back!! Get out and take some photos, much more personal that way:wink:

      BTW Aeronut, nice photos!
