Beautiful Landscape Wallpapers from Annmbonehttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/05/05/beautiful-landscape-wallpapers-annmbone/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/05/05/beautiful-landscape-wallpapers-annmbone/#comments Sat, 05 May 2012 14:03:49 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=93946 These images that you can add to your collection of landscape wallpapers are a true thing of beauty.

Ann Marie Bone is a freelance artist with a passion for vibrant colors as these images show. A graduate from Nottingham University in 1983,  she lives in Dovedale, in the Peak District of Derbyshire, where she claims  is a constant inspiration for her many nature paintings.

Blue Moon

But that is not the only kind of art she paints. She does other subjects from pets to portraits and all sorts of landscapes. She also can take a favorite photograph that you would like her to turn into a painting; she can do that.

Her specialty is in unique images, and she will listen to someone’s ideas for a painting and what type of color color scheme to use. She’s open to that. And if you like one of her paintings but would like to change certain items, she can customize the image for you.

These ten images are part of a larger collection.

Here is Blue Lagoon, BlueBell Woods, Endless Days, End of the Rainbow, Fervent Forest, Fishing Trip, Force of Nature, Secret Sunset, Sunset tree, and Twisted Blossom.

Her focus is mainly on oils and acrylic on canvas, but working with a wide variety of sizes. However, she can also paint in water colors and do pencil drawings which are framed to order.

Budget limitations can be worked around when she can provide information on the options available in your price range.

She is also a member of the worldwide arts website Deviant Art which has over 14 million members. Her landscapes are usually among the most popular for the month under the Landscape category of Traditional Painting and the site gives her motivation to paint. People can visit her Deviant Art profile at annmbone.deviantart.com.

That’s if you live in the Northern Hemisphere of course, otherwise I guess it means you’ve entered the first day of your Winter…

However since it’s the first of May, it means that Smashing Magazine have released another brilliant collection of Wallpapers for the month. This month we’ve got 22 various different wallpapers which try to capture the essence of the month of May.

As usual these wallpapers all come with calendars over layed which is quite handy. All you have to do is quickly glance at your desktop and you’ve got a calendar there.

These wallpapers were submitted to Smashing Magazine by artists all over the world and it’s well worth having a look at some of their work.

I’ve added a gallery of all the wallpapers below, but if you want to download them I recommend that you go to Smashing Magazines post where you will find the various image resolutions as well as a non-calendar version of the wallpapers. They also give all the appropriate credit to the artists which is important.

So what’s your favourite wallpaper this month? For me it has to be this one.

Why? Because as I write this it has been pouring rain all day, very appropriate for the first day of Summer.

Download Artwork Wallpapers from the Artist eReSawhttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/03/11/artwork-wallpapers-artist-eresaw/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/03/11/artwork-wallpapers-artist-eresaw/#comments Mon, 12 Mar 2012 03:04:48 +0000 http://www.windows7news.com/?p=23195 Here is a gallery of some amazing artwork from the artist eReSaw.

The images come from her collection of art that have exotic colors, and images.

This collection demonstrates the imagination that looks at objects and finds new ways to present them.

Virtual art represents pushing the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm. The notion of the existence of the avant-garde is considered by some to be a hallmark of modernism, as distinct from post modernism. The artist -eReSaw’s imges are a form of Avant-Gard with a virtual art display. She takes ordinary images and finds ways to modify them and combine them with other images.  With the advancements in technology virtual art has transformed and evolved quickly from simple 8-bit representations to 3D models containing millions of polygons. Virtual art is made of many computer programs and has no boundaries, so it uses animations, movies, computer games and so on. As it becomes more and more popular and important, it results in people being able to live another virtual life.

Virtual art consist of virtual reality, augmented reality, or mixed reality, it can be seen in other aspects such as video games and movies. As virtual art covers wide array of mediums it is a catch-all term for specific focuses within it. Unlike most art forms, with virtual art one can become a recognizable figure in the community with little to no experience. For example, a screen shot taken out of a video game with the help of the internet can go viral and quickly become a phenomenon.

The gallary presented here is only a small part of the images from the artist eReSaw. Enjoy the images.

Get The Windows 8 Consumer Preview Wallpapers For Windows 7http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/02/07/windows-8-consumer-preview-wallpapers-windows-7/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/02/07/windows-8-consumer-preview-wallpapers-windows-7/#comments Tue, 07 Feb 2012 22:17:52 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=22110 The Windows 8 Consumer Preview can’t be too far away now. We’ve had loads of leaks to do with Windows 8 which you can read all about over at our sister site Windows 8 News. Recently there was a few leaked screenshots from the Consumer Preview build of Windows 8 which hasn’t been made available to the public yet. Along with those screenshots came some wallpapers that are set to be made available in the consumer preview of Windows 8.

I know that you guys love the huge range of wallpapers that we have here at Windows7news, so I decided to get the wallpapers from the Windows 8 Consumer Preview  to add to our extensive collection.

The first one is actually the same as the log on wallpaper for Windows 7, the others are new as best as I can make out. There’s also 2 widescreen wallpapers which I imagine would be for multi monitor displays.

You can check them out in the gallery below. To save them simply right click on the image then choose save as.

Year of the Dragon – New Windows 7 Themeshttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/01/15/year-dragon-windows-7-themes/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/01/15/year-dragon-windows-7-themes/#comments Sun, 15 Jan 2012 15:18:47 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=21816 Microsoft has released a new set of Windows 7 Themes called Year of the Dragon.

Celebrate the Year of the Dragon with a free Windows 7 theme featuring magnificent examples—both ancient and new—of the imperial dragon rendered in stone, wood, and bronze.

It’s interesting that most of the world marks the turn of the year around this time. January 23rd brings the start of the Year of the Dragon, for which we’ve assembled a collection of magnificent ancient and modern renderings in stone, wood, and bronze.

The Year of the Dragon

The Dragon is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar, and the only animal that is legendary. The Year of the Dragon is associated with the earthly branch symbol.

Water and the elemental signs 

Water in the Chinese zodiac is the low point of the matter, or the matter’s dying or hiding stage. Water is the fifth stage of Wu Xing. The other stages are Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal.

Water is the most yin, i.e., polar opposite (yin and yang), in the character of the Five elements. It is associated with the Winter, the North, the planet Mercury, the color black, cold weather, night, and the Black Tortoise (Xuan Wu) in Four Symbols.

 

The Elemental signs of the Dragon

  • 16 February 1904 – 3 February 1905: Wood Dragon
  • 3 February 1916 – 22 January 1917: Fire Dragon
  • 23 January 1928 – 9 February 1929: Earth Dragon
  • 8 February 1940 – 26 January 1941: Metal Dragon
  • 27 January 1952 – 13 February 1953: Water Dragon
  • 13 February 1964 – 1 February 1965: Wood Dragon
  • 31 January 1976 – 17 February 1977: Fire Dragon
  • 17 February 1988 – 5 February 1989: Earth Dragon
  • 5 February 2000 – 23 January 2001: Metal Dragon
  • 23 January 2012 – 9 February 2013: Water Dragon
  • 10 February 2024 – 28 January 2025: Wood Dragon


The Cycle of Wu Xing

There are two cycles in the Wu Xing, the regenerative and the conquest. In the regenerative cycle, metal engenders Water, as metal traps falling water from a source. The demonstration of Waters power comes as it creates Wood as rain or dew makes plant life flourish.

In the conquest cycle, Water overcomes Fire, since nothing will put out a fire as quickly as water. But Earth overcomes water as earth-built canals direct the flow, as well as soil absorbing water.

 

Note: Windows 7 themes can only be used in Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions.

January 2012 Smashing Magazine Calendar Wallpapershttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/01/02/january-2012-smashing-magazine-calendar-wallpapers/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/01/02/january-2012-smashing-magazine-calendar-wallpapers/#comments Mon, 02 Jan 2012 21:33:23 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=21658 The guys over at Smashing Magazine do a great job putting together some brilliant wallpapers. For the whole of 2011 the ran a series of calendar wallpapers for each month of the year. However the reason I never posted about them before is because I didn’t actually stumble across the series until the end of the summer, by which time I felt it was too late to share the series with you as you would have missed out on the previous months!

So this year I’m going to be bringing you the Calendar Wallpapers from their collection every month, I guess you could say that it’s my new years resolution in a way! Now for the month of January there is 18 different wallpapers for you to choose from. I’d recommend using all of them and set your wallpaper settings to change images every 10 minutes or so in the Windows 7 settings.

Not only are these great looking wallpapers for Windows 7, but they also have a calendar in them as well just for convenience. And if you don’t want to have the calendar on them, you can still download the wallpapers from Smashing Magazine without it.

Of course you can save the images by right click – > save as when your looking at them in the gallery below, but I’d recommend going to Smashing Magazine and getting them there. They have all the different resolutions as well as the non-calendar version. They also credit all the authors who contributed them as well which is important.

Black and White Photography Wallpapers by the Artist Hengki24http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/12/31/black-white-photography-art-artist-hendrk24/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/12/31/black-white-photography-art-artist-hendrk24/#comments Sun, 01 Jan 2012 02:05:13 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=21655 The photography Artist Hengki24 has a gallery of black and white photographs. Below is a sample of those pictures.

According to Hengki photography is not just a way of expressing his most inner soul but also creating a window to the world where through his pictures the unseen and the unspoken can be grasped. Viewers of his art will see a dominant area of nature. That is no accident. Driven by the desire to explore the mystical beauty of nature, Hengki develops his sense and sensibility by examining the art in new ways through the elements of fine art photography. His freedom of expression is more reflected in the elaboration and exploration of black and white.

His view of photography is that it can never be separated from making the ordinary seem extra-ordinary, or of making the common things look unusual. In this way he welcomes the unexpected by looking at ordinary objects and then indulging and embracing those features in new ways. All of this is possible by taking an ordinary object and making it appear extraordinary and as such as making viewers believe that anything is possible.

Born in Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia, on March 24, 1963, Hengki Koentjoro is a reputation as an accomplished black and white photographer. He is a graduate of the Brooks Institute of Photography, Santa Barbara, California, with a major in video production and a minor in fine art of photography. Although he studied in the US, Hengki returned to Indonesia to become a freelance videographer/editor, specializing in nature documentaries and corporate profiles, and now lives in Jakarta with his wife Lana and their three children. Hengki is a part time practitioner of the art of black and white photography, which he believes to be his true purpose in life’s journey of expression.

15 Brilliant Dual Monitor Wallpapers for Windows 7http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/11/11/dual-monitor-wallpapers/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/11/11/dual-monitor-wallpapers/#comments Fri, 11 Nov 2011 15:56:52 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=21131 I only realised today that we actually have no collection of dual monitor wallpapers up here on Windows7news, so I made it my goal today to go and dig up a top notch selection of dual monitor wallpapers. I’m sure plenty of our readers are running Windows 7 on a dual monitor setup, I often switch between single and dual monitor displays depending on what I’m doing.

One problem with traditional Windows 7 wallpapers is that they are only designed for single monitor displays and when you switch to a dual monitor setup, all it does is tile repeat the image on your second monitor.

But with these dual monitor wallpapers, that have an extra wide resolution, you won’t get that problem. However most users will find that they have to make a slight change before the wallpaper is stretched across the two monitors.

You’ll need to go to Personalize -> Desktop Background, now if you look at Picture Position chances are it says Fill. If you change that to Tile then it should stretch the wallpaper across your two monitors.

So without further ado, here’s a selection of 15 brilliant dual monitor wallpapers for Windows 7.

To Download any of these wallpapers, click on them and you’ll see the full size image on a new page, then right click -> save as / save image as

 

And of course if you don’t have a dual monitor set up, don’t forget to check out out extensive range of Windows 7 Wallpapers

Great Concept Art Wallpapers from Marmottehttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/10/13/great-concept-art-wallpapers-marmotte/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/10/13/great-concept-art-wallpapers-marmotte/#comments Thu, 13 Oct 2011 23:38:10 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=20897 Marmotte is a concepts design artist with a flair for color that highlights ordinary objects and sends them into a special place for observation.

Veronique Meignaud otherwise known as Marmotte (b.1984) is a French freelance illustrator living in Montreal. After two years of formation at the Emile Cohl Art School (Lyon / France), she spent almost five years working for the video game industry as concept artist. Marmotte is now working for several publishers and starting slowly in the fashion Industry.

.
Approach to Art

Here is her approach to design art:

“While creating a new piece, a lot of trained artists already have a precise idea of what they are after. The picture they want to create is like a set destination, and they work rigorously until this destination is reached. While technique and academic training are necessary in the creation of any piece of artwork, some artists feel they are sometimes trapped by these and feel a need to free themselves. This often manifests with an artist being bored by his own work, feeling that he lacks imagination … Rather than working with a set destination in mind, I like my personal works to take me wherever they want to go. Thus the destination is never set, it evolves during the making of the picture. This is the way I feel the most free, and this is the way that I feel my ideas won’t curb themselves to a limited space.”

Clients
Her style has come to the attention of multiple clients that picture her work for its dramatic colors. The clients include Computer Games Studios, Electronic Arts, Darkworks, Don’t Nod Entertainment, Spiders Games, Tokkun Studio, Hydravision, Gameloft, Widescreen Games, Etranges Libellules, Wizarbox, Nemopolis, Fashion Design, Nike, and Marc Ecko.

Publishers

The publishers she has worked with include Wizards of the Coast, Ankama Editions, Imagine FX magazine, Advance Photoshop magazine, Milan Jeunesse, ActuSF Editions.

Video Tutorial

She has worked on a tutorial video for Massive Black, “Stream of Consciousness Illustration” is now available on Massive Black Download.

Beside this, her personal art projects are on-going, such as Kerogen, an illustration book that will be published by the fresh Venusdea label, which is directed by Barbara Canepa & Clotilde Vu in the Soleil Editions.

Download Photo-manipulation Art from Various Artistshttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/09/25/download-photomanipulation-art-artists/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/09/25/download-photomanipulation-art-artists/#comments Sun, 25 Sep 2011 17:34:01 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=20628 Here is a set of Wallpapers that reflect the  photo-manipulation art process. 14 examples from WhiteWinged, Alroo, Emerald-Depths, maiartacita, JenLaa, and aartorifreedom demonstrate the wide range of design interests that make the picture enchanting.

Creative Retouching

Creative retouching is used as an art form or for commercial use to create more sleek and interesting creative images, some for advertisements,  other just to garner attention. Creative retouching can involve manipulation for fashion, beauty or advertising photography such as pack-shots. One of the most prominent disciplines in creative retouching is image-composting. Here, the digital artist uses multiple photos to create a single composite image. Now a days, 3D elements are used more and more to add extra elements or even locations and backgrounds. This kind of image composition is used when conventional photography would be technically too difficult or impossible to shoot on location or in studio.

 

Here is the gallery of 14 images:

Download Windows 7 wallpapers from the Artist Genzomanhttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/09/14/download-windows-7-wallpapers-artist-genzoman/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/09/14/download-windows-7-wallpapers-artist-genzoman/#comments Thu, 15 Sep 2011 00:02:37 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=20517 The Artist Genzoman works with ancient mythologies to create captivating images.  Versed in ancient Greek mythology, Genzoman wrote that Cronus  was the leader and the youngest of the first generation of Titans, divine descendants of Gaia, the earth, and Uranus, the sky. He overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age, until he was overthrown by his own sons, Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon, and imprisoned in Tartarus.

 

 

 

Another character that is important is Nike who was a goddess that personified triumph throughout the ages of the ancient Greek culture. She was the Winged Goddess of Victory. The Romans also had an equivalent goddess, which was Victoria. Depending upon the time of various myths, she was described as the daughter of Pallas (Titan) and Styx (Water), and the sister of Cratos (Strength), Bia (Force), and of Zelus (Rivalry).

Nike and her siblings all became described as attendants of Zeus when his cult gained the position of the dominant deity of the Greek pantheon and the roles of older deities were changed in new myths. According to classical (later) myth, Styx brought them to Zeus when the god was assembling allies for the Titan War against the older deities.

Nike assumed the role of the divine charioteer, a role in which she often is portrayed in Classical Greek art. Nike is seen with wings in most statues and paintings. Most other winged deities in the Greek pantheon had shed their wings by Classical times. Nike is the Goddess of strength, speed, and victory. Nike was a very close acquaintance of Athena, Goddess of wisdom.

Genzoman has publications with LDA. LDA stands for Latin Digital Artists, and it is a Latin American Magazine that will will be published by Wi~Fi Digital Press. The new publication will be a re edition to the previous online one and will be follow by other editions every 2 months. Participating on this Re-Edition there are many other artists besides GENZOMAN.

So if you are into the art of odd and unusual looking characters, some well known, like the Hulk, or others that are not, like Captain DarkWater or Soundwave, then here are 20 character designs that are fascinating to look at.

Here is Captain DarkWater.

 

 

What is the process of designing character art for games. According to the artist, it’s a very subjective process and every artist handles it differently based on their experiences and the tools available to them. A good design artist has to be aware of how the characters fit into the game, and the art must reflect the characters interaction within the environment. So while the artist may have one concept of the appearance of the character at the outset, but as the games develop that concept may change. So to will the background change.

Then there is this which the artist says ” I start virtually every character with a host of silhouettes and tiny roughs. I think often about the iconic shapes and posture that will illustrate the personality I’m shooting for. Balance, line of action, and asymmetry all play vital roles in maintaining clarity while defining the character’s overall mood. ”

By this process, the design has been fleshed out, enough so that it can stand on its own but as fitting into the gamut of the experience that the artists wants to portray.

The artists wrap the design with a final linework pass with a “less is more” approach while highlighting the lines that matter and dropping everything else. The focus remains largely on stroke and line weight while pushing the overall line of action for the character.

In Old English wyrm means “serpent”, draca means “dragon”. Though a winged creature, the dragon is generally to be found in its underground lair, a cave that identifies it as an ancient creature of earth, like the mythic serpent, that was a source of knowledge even in Eden.

All of that and we certainly can’t get enough of Dragons. But then again the art is mesmerizing. Here are 15 dragon wallpapers that have great colors, and fascinating images. They stand alone and apart.

But it’s interesting to see what the some artists and car designers have in mind for the future. The other thing that is interesting is that many of these new futuristic designs are the by-product of the technologies in place. The new technologies give the designers a freedom and latitude that otherwise would not be available. Designers now are able to design cars without the constraints of the past.

Download … 16 Lightning Images for Windows 7 Wallpapershttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/07/27/download-16-lightning-images-windows-7-wallpapers/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/07/27/download-16-lightning-images-windows-7-wallpapers/#comments Wed, 27 Jul 2011 22:07:23 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=19770 Lightning storms produce some of the most beautiful images in nature. Here are 16 lightning images with different styles, focuses and wild nature impacts.

The most commonly observed form of  lightning is streak lightning. This is nothing more than the return stroke, the visible part of the lightning stroke.

Cloud-to-ground lightning

The  second most common type of lightning. Of all the different types of lightning, it poses the greatest threat to life and property since it strikes the ground.

Bead lightning

Bead lightning is a type of cloud-to-ground lightning which appears to break up into a string of short, bright sections.

Ribbon lightning

Ribbon lightning occurs in thunderstorms with high cross winds and multiple return strokes. The wind blows each successive return stroke slightly to one side of the previous return stroke, causing a ribbon effect.

Staccato lightning

Staccato lightning is a cloud to ground lightning strike which is a short-duration stroke that appears as a single very bright flash and often has considerable branching.

Forked lightning

Forked lightning is a name for cloud-to-ground lightning that exhibits branching of its path.

Ground-to-cloud lightning

Ground-to-cloud lightning is a lightning discharge between the ground and a cumulonimbus cloud initiated by an upward-moving leader stroke. Negatively charged ions called the stepped leader rise up from the ground and meet the positively charged ions in a cumulonimbus cloud. Then the strike goes back to the ground as the return stroke.

Cloud-to-cloud lightning

Lightning discharges may occur between areas of cloud without contacting the ground. When it occurs between two separate clouds it is known as inter-cloud lightning,

Sheet lightning

Sheet lightning is an informally applied name to cloud-to-cloud lightning that exhibits a diffuse brightening of the surface of a cloud caused by the actual discharge path being hidden.

Heat lightning

Heat lightning is a common name for a lightning flash that appears to produce no thunder because it occurs too far away for the thunder to be heard. The sound waves dissipate before they reach the observer.

Some of my old zone names were Knight38_Binson, Vulture_Foster, Digital_Toomuch and SIN_XenJi  - anybody remember me?

Ready To Attack and other Windows7 Wallpapers from LastScionzhttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/09/ready-attack-windows7-wallpapers-lastscionz/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/09/ready-attack-windows7-wallpapers-lastscionz/#comments Thu, 09 Jun 2011 15:44:00 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=11761 Here are 15 cartoon images from the artist LastScionz. Some would call this comic book art because of the themes personified and the contrasting colors.

A cartoon is any of several forms of illustrations with varied meanings. The term originated from the fine art of the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. But it changed to the more modern meaning of humorous illustrations in magazines and newspapers, to the contemporary meaning referring to animated programs.

Originally, a cartoon  was a full-size drawing made on paper as a study for further drawings, such as a painting or tapestry. Cartoons were typically used in the production of frescoes (Italian paintings on plaster or walls), to accurately link the component parts of the composition when painted onto plaster over a series of days. In this sense the cartoon was just a premier to some further work that had to be done.

The download links are below.


 

In modern print media, a cartoon is a piece of art, with humor in mind. This goes back to 1843 when Punch magazine applied the term to satirical drawings in its pages, in particular the sketches by the artist John Leech. The first of these parodied the preparatory cartoons for grand historical frescoes in the then-new Palace of Westminster, London . The original title for these drawings was Mr Punch’s face is the letter Q and the new title “cartoon” was intended to be ironic, a reference to Westminster politicians.

Clearly the art of cartoons has changed quite a bit since the early days. Now they can stand on their own as art pieces.

18 Windows7 Wallpapers in Fractal Art Mode by Mandelbrathttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/06/windows7-themes-fractal-art-mode-mandelbrat/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/06/windows7-themes-fractal-art-mode-mandelbrat/#comments Mon, 06 Jun 2011 14:27:47 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=11686 Here are 18 Windows 7 Wallpapers in Fractal Art Mode by the artist Mandelbrat.

Fractal art is a subset of algorithmic art. To create the forms artists make fractal objects through calculations and representing the results as still images, animations, and media.

While most artists do not have a mathematical background, Fractal art is usually created indirectly with the assistance of fractal-generating software, iterating through three phases:

  • setting parameters of appropriate fractal software;
  • executing the possibly lengthy calculation;
  • evaluating the product.

Other graphic programs may be available to make additional modifications to the images produced, in a post-processing forum.

 

Fractals contain extremely irregular curves or shapes for which any suitably chosen part is similar in shape to a given larger or smaller part when magnified or reduced to the same size. In other words, the same image may be seen in smaller detail, or in a larger view. It is like if you took the letter A, and magnified it, and you see the letter A once again, in smaller version, and so on. (This is just a rough explanation.)

The origin of the fractal art came from a mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot. He was largely responsible for the present interest in Fractal Geometry. He showed how Fractals are commonly found in different parts of mathematics but also in nature. Artists took an interest in the recurring feature of fractal art and began recreating their own images. The Mandelbrot Set below, is the early version of fractal art. If you magnify any part of the border, you get the same Mandelbrot Set image once again.

You can access fractal art software at Math/Science/Chaos.

Dark Knight and New Windows 7 Wallpapers – by Reaper78http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/03/windows-7-wallpapers-dark-knight-reaper78/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/03/windows-7-wallpapers-dark-knight-reaper78/#comments Fri, 03 Jun 2011 12:08:25 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=11640 If the pursuit of darkness is your thing…here are some Windows 7 Wallpapers from the artist Reaper78 that will interest you.

These wallpapers are interesting because of the mythological characters that they represent. The colors reflect their standing. Emblem is one of the most interesting because of the dual nature…who is real and who is the emblem the image seems to ask.

Archmage is a title that identifies a powerful wizard. Typically, it is found in the context of fantasy fiction. The term is a neologism strung together from the Greek word arché, meaning “first” and magos, which refers  to the astronomer-astrologers of ancient Persia.

An elf is a being of Germanic mythology. Originally they were thought of as a race of divine beings with magical powers, which they use both for the benefit and the injury of mankind. In medieval Norse mythology, they were divided into light elves and dark elves.

 

 

Gremlin is an English folkloric creature. They are frequently depicted as mischievous and mechanically oriented. They have a specific interest in aircraft which they like to mess with. They are inclined to damage or dismantle machinery.

A gnome is a small humanoid creature that lives underground and is a diminutive spirit. It was originally found in Renaissance magic and alchemy. Modern fantasy fiction story tellers have been reinterpreted to suit the needs of various story-tellers.

A Banshee is a feminine spirit in Irish mythology. Seeing a Banshee is not good because it is usually seen as a messenger and omen of death  from the Otherworld.

A Necromancer practices a form of magic which seeks to call and raise the spirit of a deceased person, either as an apparition or ghost for the purposes of divination.

Is the Dark Knight a hero or villain? Does he take the law into his own hands, or work for justice?

Eyes of a Different Color – By EliseEnchantedhttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/26/eyes-color-eliseenchanted/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/26/eyes-color-eliseenchanted/#comments Fri, 27 May 2011 01:03:37 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=11572 Different Eyes. This is a different set of wallpapers I found from EliseEnchanted. She has other images and, but the eyes caught my attention.  They are a little unusual,  sure … but the colors caught my attention.  There are a lot of contrasts, and show different views of what would ordinarily be seen as an ordinary image… the eye. What are your thoughts?

Nature Wallpapers for Windows7 from the Artist Raymakerhttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/19/nature-wallpapers-windows7-artist-raymaker/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/19/nature-wallpapers-windows7-artist-raymaker/#comments Thu, 19 May 2011 21:25:23 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=11511 Here are some nature wallpapers from Paul Raymaker, artist and photographer. Here is what he has to say:

” When shooting, I capture the best data with my pixels as I can through careful technique. My practices are far from perfect and I am always trying to learn and absorb as much information as possible. My photographs always maintain integrity and have not been edited in a way that adds or subtracts subject matter. All images of wildlife in my galleries are truly wild; not captive in zoos or game farms. My intent is to make my images look as near to what I see in real life as possible.”

The variety of aero effects and colors, along with a wide range of Windows 7 themes really make it quite an attractive OS, that’s easy on the eye. Not only does it look good, but for the most part, it performs as well as it looks.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to put together a list of the 12 Top Windows 7 Wallpapers. In no particular order here they are.

Windows 7 HDR Photograph Themes from the Artist PinGalleryhttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/15/architectural-photographs-artist-pingallery/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/15/architectural-photographs-artist-pingallery/#comments Sun, 15 May 2011 18:57:10 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=11454 Windows 7 Themes come in a variety of formats, here are photographs from PinGallery who specializes in HDR

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. HDR-digital photos are characterized by high richness, even in bright areas or deep shadows. This is possible when conventional bracketing are converted by using special software in HDR images.

.

 

In image processing, computer graphics, and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allow a greater dynamic range of luminances between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods.

To create an HDR image, multiple shots are needed. Due to the overexposure and underexposure of individual agencies and the drawings in the bright and dark areas are recorded. The calculated HDR image can not be displayed properly because it is contrary to standard images (LDR – Low Dynamic Range) instead of the color information stored with 32 bit resolution with 8 bit and the contrast is just too great. The final picture is obtained only with the Tone Mapping. It allows numerous settings and parameters, with special lighting – form and color effects.

Halloween Theme For Windows 7 Releasedhttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/10/19/halloween-theme-windows-7-released/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/10/19/halloween-theme-windows-7-released/#comments Tue, 19 Oct 2010 21:36:45 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=9955 In keeping with holiday events, Microsoft have been working away and released the Windows 7 Halloween theme for Windows 7 in time for the holiday season.

It’s been dubbed “Eerie Autumn”, spooky I know. You can now truly celebrate the festivities with this spooky theme pack, complete with ghostly wallpapers and eerie sounds to match.

There’s 15 wallpapers in total, complete with the Halloween sound track. Most of the picture are spooky enough and in keeping with the festival, however one or two seem just a little bit amateurish.

But I think what stands out most with this theme is the wild soundtrack with it. The customized sounds play a major part in the Halloween experience. Gone are the friendly Windows twinkles, and in are some spine-shaking, soul shivering church organs and some crazy ghouls to really get the hairs on the back of your neck standing on end as you go about your daily tasks.

Just be sure not to have your volume turned up full when you first set up this theme, otherwise you may get some odd looks from your counterparts.

Have a look at the images below

Windows Personalization Gallery Updated, Categories Addedhttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/07/03/windows-personalization-gallery-updated-categories-added/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/07/03/windows-personalization-gallery-updated-categories-added/#comments Sat, 03 Jul 2010 09:33:07 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=8984 Microsoft has created the Windows Personalization Gallery to offer additional themes, desktop backgrounds and gadgets to Windows 7 users. We all know that theme management has been improved in Windows 7 which made this move possible.

It was not really possible to share themes in previous Windows versions, Windows 7 changed this by offering theme imports and exports, at least for basic themes and without system file patching.

Microsoft has updated the Personalization Gallery which is now using categories to provide better access to its contents.

Windows 7 Themes, which were lumped together before, are now divided into theme categories like animals, nature or automotive. This makes sense considering that new themes are added on a regular basis to the Personalization Gallery.

It is furthermore possible to display only newly added themes or all themes. Themes are linked directly to themepack downloads which can be executed on the local system to install the theme on it.

The desktop backgrounds listing has been improved in the same way. Wallpapers are now divided into categories to streamline the selection process.

Both are small changes that improve the user experience on the site. Have you been using the Personalization Gallery to install new themes and backgrounds? Let us know in the comments.

The Ultimate Wallpaper Switcher For Windows 7http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/06/13/the-ultimate-wallpaper-switcher-for-windows-7/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/06/13/the-ultimate-wallpaper-switcher-for-windows-7/#comments Sun, 13 Jun 2010 16:00:22 +0000 http://everything-microsoft.com/?p=8525 I’m sure most of you are familiar with the great wallpaper switcher built right into Windows 7. It automatically switches your wallpapers at certain time intervals, ie. every 10 mins or every hour.

I’ve been very impressed with this feature, and though it’s a simple little thing, I think it’s a nice touch to personalizing your desktop. In the past this feature wasn’t built into Windows, and you had to use third party programs to achieve the same result.

I can’t really imagine myself using an additional program for this feature, but that was until I stumbled across John’s Background Switcher.

[Download not found]

It adds a whole new dimension to the Windows 7 background switcher. It let’s you bring in photos from external sources to use in your backgrounds as well.

You can choose to display:

  • Individual pictures on your computer.
  • Folders containing pictures on your computer such as ‘My Pictures’.
  • Flickr photo sharing – selecting pictures by person, tags, sets or just plain random. You never know what you’re going to get next!
  • Facebook – your friends photos on your desktop!
  • Vladstudio wallpapers – choose from the coolest wallpapers on the net!
  • Any Media RSS feed – choose pictures from sites like DeviantArt, Photobucket,LOLCats and Zooomr amongst many others!
  • Phanfare web albums– keep up to date with your friends and family.
  • smugmug photo galleries – yours, your friends, anybody’s!
  • Picasa Web Albums – choose from specific albums or any search text.
  • Webshots – if you’re a Webshots user, you can choose from your online or downloaded photos and collections.
  • Google Image Search – get pictures from anywhere across the internet.
  • Bing Image Search – not a Google fanboy? Then Bing is for you!
  • Yahoo! image search – the internet is your oyster!

So as you can see with JBS (John’s Background Switcher) you have a lot more options for displaying your pictures.

What’s more you can even choose to have different pictures displaying on different monitors and have special effects like a postcard piles, mosaics and tiles instead of just a single image. It’s quite impressive the range of customization.

It takes a while to set up, but once you’ve done it it’s worth it.

FIFA World Cup Theme for Windows 7http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/06/12/fifa-world-cup-theme-for-windows-7/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/06/12/fifa-world-cup-theme-for-windows-7/#comments Sat, 12 Jun 2010 13:00:17 +0000 http://everything-microsoft.com/2010/06/12/fifa-world-cup-theme-for-windows-7/ Whether you follow football (soccer) or not, there can be no escaping the fact that the 2010 World Cup is now taking place in South Africa.  To mark the occasion, Electronic Arts have released a Windows 7 theme to accompany (and promote) their FIFA World Cup South Africa game.

Electronic-Arts-2010-FIFA-World-Cup-South-Africa-01-1024x819

The theme contains a series of screenshots from the game, and a few generic ones, such as the image above for anyone who wants to adorn their PC in the way a great many people around the world (especially in my neighbourhood) are decorating their houses and apartments with flags and bunting.

You can download this theme here.

Get DreamScene In Windows 7http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/05/03/get-dreamscene-in-windows-7/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/05/03/get-dreamscene-in-windows-7/#comments Mon, 03 May 2010 21:13:21 +0000 http://everything-microsoft.com/?p=8221 You may remember a feature that was found only in Windows Vista Ultimate- “Dreamscene” what it did was allow you to set a video as your wallpaper. While it probably wasn’t the most economically with power consumption and CPU usage, it was still pretty cool. Microsoft only made it available in the Ultimate Edition of Vista because they wanted us to buy the more expensive edition to gain access to these “Extras” but to be honest, not a lot in the line of extras arrived.

It seems Microsoft decided not to include this feature in Windows 7, probably in an effort to make the OS more stable and less power hungry, but as usual, where there’s a will there’s a way.

DreamScene had many fans and they weren’t too impressed when it got cut from Windows 7, so for all you guys, here’s how you can get it back.

The ever-helpful Kishan Bagaria has provided a tool to help us out. Simply download a program called DreamScene Activator. You will then need to run the .exe file as administrator and it will make some changes to your registry settings.


Then hit “Enable DreamScene” and your away! The explorer will restart and then you will be all set. DreamScene Activator also adds the option for you to right click on a video and set it as your wallpaper. It also adds the controls to your desktop so you can pause and play by accessing the right click context menu.

Remember if you don’t run this with Administrator access it wont work.
