I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend! I can’t believe today is December 1st. Where did this year go? This past Friday was mine and Keith’s three year anniversary. Since it fell on Black Friday this year, neither of us really wanted to venture out of the house but we did go out to dinner and it surprisingly wasn’t completely insane.
I’m not typically a huge fan of the holidays, but this year I thought it would be fun to dress up my desktop with a super minimalist holiday wallpaper. It’s simple and not overly festive, while still being fun and bright. It also does not include the dreaded red and green color combination. Those colors together make me cringe Every. Single. Christmas. Anyway! I’m trying to get into the spirit of the season so I’m starting with baby steps. A tree desktop this year and maybe next year I’ll be ready for a real Christmas tree?
THE 2880 X 1800 SHOULD FIT MOST DESKTOPS AND THE 1536 X 2048 IS SIZED FOR THE IPAD AIR BUT WILL SCALE DOWN TO FIT AN IPHONE 5 WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS. HOWEVER, IF ANYONE NEEDS A DIFFERENT SIZE, FEEL FREE TO COMMENT BELOW AND I’LL UPDATE THIS POST WITH ADDITIONAL SIZES IF NEEDED.
Click on the “download now” button to open the full size image, right click and select “save file as..” Save the image to a location that you can easily find. I keep all of my wallpapers in a specific folder on my hard drive so that I don’t have to guess where I saved it to.
For mobile devices, you can save the image to your computer and send it to yourself or go to this post from your phone or tablet and save the image from there.
To set the saved image as your desktop background:
For Mac users – Select “System Preferences” from the Apple Menu. Click “Desktop & Screen Saver.” In that window, find where you saved your newly created Desktop Background and click on the image.
For Windows – Right-click your desktop and choose “Personalize.” Select “Desktop Background” from the windows bottom left. Select the image you downloaded for the background. Click the “Save Changes” button.
To set the saved image as your mobile device background:
For iOS users – Locate the picture in your photo stream then tap the icon in the lower left corner that looks like a square with an arrow pointing out of the top. Tap “Use As Wallpaper” then position the wallpaper on the screen however you like and tap “Set Lock Screen” “Set Home Screen” or “Set Both” depending on which screen you want to use it on.
For Android users – I actually don’t have an Android device so I’m not 100% sure how to set the image as your background but you should be able to follow these instructions.
