1. How do I set a wallpaper
to be my desktop background?
There are two ways you can set a wallpaper
as a background. The first and simpler way is to open a
window with the image you want to use, right click on the
image, and select "Set as Background." The second
way is to download the image, and through the desktop properties
page, select the image that you want to set as a background.
2. How do I resize the desktop
backgrounds to fit my monitor?
You can resize an image to fit your
desktop. To make a larger or smaller image fit your desktop,
you will have to go to the desktop properties page. Right
click on your windows wallpaper, click on 'properties,'
and select the 'desktop' tab. From here, you can set the
'position' menu to 'stretch.' This will allow your background
to fit in your monitor, whatever the resolution.
An alternative way is to edit your image with an image
editor. You can check what resolution your desktop is using
by going to the settings tab under the display properties.
Then use any basic image editor to change the resolution
of the background to fit accordingly.
3. How am I allowed
to use the backgrounds and wallpapers on Crossmap Backgrounds?
Crossmap offers its
selection of Christian backgrounds as a service to other
Christians. The backgrounds are either designed by exclusive
Crossmap contributors, or submitted by Crossmap members.
The home page of Crossmap Background shows this distinction.
Feel free to use the images publicly, on your computer,
for church bulletins, presentations, etc. However, you are
not free to use the backgrounds comercially, or to repost
modified Crossmap backgrounds without permission. Please
consult the Crossmap service agreement for more information.
4. How do I save wallpaper
so that I can use them later?
To save a wallpaper,
first open the window with the background in it that you
want to save. Then right click on the image, and hit 'Save
Picture As.' Select a destination for the image, and the
image will be saved onto your computer.
5. The wallpaper looks fuzzy,
I am an AOL user.
By default, AOL has an image compressor
that will help load the images faster, but at the same time,
will compromise the image quality. Also, it is possible
that the image will be reduced to 640x480 pixels. Turn off
the compression feature of AOL, and allow the images to
download in their native form.
6. Can I link to your images?
Please do not link to our images directly.
Many of the images are fairly large in size, and it takes
a lot of bandwidth to sponsor this page. However, please
feel free to link to any of the sites within Crossmap, and
you can even link to the pages that contain the wallpaper
that you are trying to display.
