Desktop Scripture Images
I love the Word of God and find great encouragement from the Scriptures. I also immensely enjoy photography and God’s Creation. As a personal hobby and for spiritual growth I have enjoyed making these desktop images. It is a double blessing that they may enrich others as well. The following images can be used as desktop (wallpaper) images. All photos were taken by me (Stephen C. Weber) unless noted. Merely left click on the link to open the full-sized image. See below for instructions on making these into a desktop or other uses.

Slideshow” option on the screensaver. In xp you

"set as desktop background."

What is a desktop image?
A "Desktop Image" is the picture that serves as the background for your computer screen. It's the one that is there when you first start your computer and nothing else is running, and is always "behind" all of your work. Sometimes it is called "wallpaper," which I guess makes some sense since walls are up and down (like a PC monitor) and desks are horizontal. Just download some of these nice images and Scripture verses to enjoy on your computer screen.
How do I download one?
Easy. Just left-click on one of the links the image above. The image will appear in a new window where you can see it closer to "full size." Right click anywhere on this image and a context menu will pop up. About six items down on that menu you will see "Save picture as ...". Select that and then a dialogue will pop up asking where to save it, probably in "My Pictures." Click OK, and remember where you "put it" (i.e., under "My Pictures" or wherever). Now the desktop image is saved on your PC!
How do make it so this is my desktop image?
Now go to your "Desktop." (Either minimize all your running programs, or exit them). When you have your screen in front of you, right click anywhere on the present background. You will get another context menu, and the bottom item on the list is "Properties." Select that one. Now you have a window that says "Display Properties" with 5 tabs across the top. First, select the one that says "Settings." OK, now click on the tab that says "Desktop." Hit the button that says "Browse" and go to wherever it was you put the image (probably "My Pictures"). Go to the desktop image you want select it, then hit "OK" to close the "Display Properties" window, and you should see your new desktop image (also called "Wallpaper") nice and pretty on your screen. You can change this any time. You can also set it so that it fills the screen (stretch) is centered or tiles. I generally prefer center but that’s a matter of taste.
