Geek Tip: Make Yer Own Cool Windows 7 Themepacks from National Geographic Photos!

Hey Kids!  Here's a super-awesometacular geek tip for making your own jaw-dropping increditastical themes for Windows 7 using fantabulous photographic backgrounds from the folks at National Geographic.  All of this from Mr. Mediocre!  But wait!  There's more!!...

  1. Surf to National Geographic and start collecting great photos like this one: http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/photography/photo-of-the-day/hengill-mountain-iceland/  (tip: be sure to go for the biggest and bestest resolution you can)  and download these to a folder under your Pictures folder.  Make a new sub-folder called "Wallpaper\NatGeo" or something amazingly stupid like that.  Keep surfing and save all the ones you like in that folder.
  2. Open that folder from your Start menu
  3. Select all the image files and then right-click and choose "Set as background background"
  4. Then right-click on your desktop and select "Personalize"
  5. Notice that your new (unnamed) theme is active.  Click the "Save theme" link and give it a name.
  6. Done!
