The best wallpaper is the one you make yourself. Get out there with a digi cam and take some photos of you and your buddies skating.

For some inspiration take photos of the actual skateboarding or take shots of the skate spots. Get down all low and take angles that make the ledge look huge!

Make sure to set the camera on the highest size and resolution. That way to photo will look good on your computer.

If you want you can download free skateboard wallpaper images from a Google search. Be sure to thank the creator of the image. Once you have the images you will need to set them as your background wallpaper. No problem. Its easy to set the file as you background. Just follow these steps:

For a PC:
The Microsoft Windows background can be adjusted by opening the background display properties. To do this in all versions of Windows before Vista, follow the below steps.

  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Open Display Properties in the Control Panel.
  3. Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000 users click the Background tab, Windows XP users click the Desktop tab.
    In Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can change the background by doing the following steps:
  4. Right click any open part of the desktop.
  5. Click personalize.
  6. Click Desktop Background.
  7. Click browse.
  8. to find the location of the picture you wish to use, simply put a check mark in the picture.
  9. You will then need to choose from Center, Tile, Fit, Fill or Stretch. This will change how the display of the picture looks on the desktop.
  10. To do a picture slideshow on your desktop, either choose 'Select all', or hold down Ctrl and choose each picture you wish to use. Also, you will need to choose how often the picture changes. This can be anywhere from 10 seconds to 1 day.

By default, Microsoft Windows will have a listing of default Windows backgrounds. If you wish to change the background to your skateboard wallpaper, click the browse button and browse to the directory of the picture.

For a Mac:
Things You'll Need:
Mac OS 9.0
Graphic Converter

  1. Find a graphic file you want to use as the desktop picture, and drag the file to the desktop.
  2. Click on the Apple menu, choose Control Panels, and select Appearance.
  3. Your current desktop pattern or picture appears in that window. Click on Remove Picture. (Don't worry: You can always get it back.)
  4. Click on Place Picture.
  5. Drag your graphic file to the picture preview window.
  6. Turn your picture into your desktop background by clicking Set Desktop.

- The best pictures for the Mac OS are 640 x 480 pixels, or 1/3 wider than they are tall. But any picture, drawing or graphic will do - as long as the format is PICT, GIF, JPEG, TIFF or MacPaint (MacPaint supports two colors: black and white). If your picture is in another format, you'll need to convert it to a supported format first.

- Not all pictures are the same dimensions (aspect ratio) as your desktop, so the Appearance control panel gives you five choices: Tile On Screen (which gives you multiple copies that fill your screen); Center On Screen (which leaves a blank space around your picture); Scale On Screen (which may distort the image or make it grainy); Fill Screen (which may cut off the top and bottom or sides); and the default setting, Position Automatically.

- Place your pointer over the current desktop and Control-click to bring up a contextual menu; select Change Desktop Background. The Appearance control panel opens.

Blah Blah Blah!
I know the techy stuff is boring. But you need it to get the job done. Once you have it all set up you can make your friends jealous with your rad homemade skate backgrounds!
