Problem is they do not fit the entire screen on the desktop. I am terrible at resizing and really don't have program to do it. There is one that I saw that is awesome. I will post link in just a second

It was a real nail biter of a race, neck and neck racing all the way to the end. Was the best A Main pro level race I've ever seen with some fantastic driving and very close racing. Gives the the term "thrills, chills, and spills" a whole new meaning! The guys at LiveRC did a great job of covering that race too. If you could somehow get that footage from them to view, you'll have a hard time staying seated for the last few mintues of the race.

Here is the one I really want. Of course I would need to get permission to use from the photographer.

First photo on the thread. The sun shot is awesome behind the drivers stand.

Yup, that's the one I saw. If you get permission to use it, and provide me with your screen resolution, I could probably size it so that it will fit for ya.

yeah thats a killer shot. And while its nice of you to ask the photog to use his image...you really dont need to if your just using it as your computer background. Now if you start printing copies and try to sell them or you post it online somewhere without their permission then you could run into copyright infringement issues

I sent the guy a pm. It's tough cause some people dont post as much and are not on here as much as others. I guess I just have to wait until he gets back to me.

Yeh thats all i want if for. My desktop background.

Right on. I dont see why he would have any issue with anyone using it for personal uses. I wish I had the patience to photoshop photos like that though...if I did I may have invested in a wide angle lens by now lol.

A person would probably need to use a 14mm or 17mm, somewhere in that range to get a shot like that without taking multiple photos and stitching.

Do you have regular PC or a mac?

On my pc you just use a decent sized pic and put it as your background, then right click on the background and go to personalize, background and select stretch...It usually looks decent...unless it's really small pic...
