I created these for my own desktop. Should anybody else be interested please feel free to download and use (subject to licence terms below).
Edit: Added a third.
All pictures taken with a Nikon D50 and post-processed to adjust the colour curve in The GIMP. The third has had a slight vignette added.

I turned a couple of yesterday’s pics into 1920×1200 wallpaper. Just in case anyone else is interested in using them, here they are…
Edited in The Gimp. I added a slight vignette, edited the colour curve and cut back the saturation a tad.
It came as something as a surprise that the search term that brings most people to my blog is “telecaster wallpaper”. So in a shallow attempt to pander to the masses here are some more. They’re all 1920×1200 widescreen format. If you would like different sizes or aspect ratios just leave a comment.

Skinny Jim and the Number 9 Blacktops are my new favourite band. Just to add a bit of rockabilly goodness to my desktop I created these two desktop wallpapers. Both in 1920×1200 resolution.
Whilst I was taking pictures of my Benford Custom, I also snapped a couple of my Telecaster. Also in 1920×1200 size. Post processing done using GIMP to add a slight vignette and the adjust the colour curve.
Finally got round to taking a couple of pictures of my Benford Custom today. Here’s my favourite of them in a convenient wallpaper size of 1920 x 1200 pixels.

…and a second one…
Here’s an idea for you, why not use your wallpaper as wallpaper? Here’s a picture of my TV attached to my MythTV PVR. The background image is a photograph of the wallpaper immediately to the left of TV. It just makes the TV “fit” into the room better (in my opinion).
You could do this for any computer screen that sits in front of a wall.
In this case I updated a MythTV theme to use the picture as the background.
To do this locate your themes folder. Mine is at /usr/share/mythtv/themes/ and then copy the folder of the theme you want to base it on. Have a look for the theme.xml file and open this with gedit (or your text editor of choice). You’ll see a section that describes the background – note the name of the file and the directory it is in. Now go and open that file and take a note of the image size.
All you have to do is rescale your photograph of your wallpaper, and then replace the theme background image with it. Select your new theme from within MythTV and you’re done.
