Werwolf1944I changed my wallpaper just now, what do you think, guys? :naughty:
Spoiler: Show

Nice large wallpaper!

I belive its from Unternehmen Cerberus, a.k.a. The Channel Dash. Scharnhorst up front, with her sistership Gneisenau right behind her. The Prinz Eugen is the large ship in the distance. JG1 'Oseau', JG2 'Richthofen' and JG26 'Schlageter' provided top cover, but I can't say I see any geschwader identification on those '109s. I can see its from the 9th Staffel from one of those Geschwaders and the rudder of the first plane has some distinct kill-bars, and maybe even a century mark. I will have to check my books if I can identify the pilot of that 'Yellow 9'.

pvt. AllenNot bad, but I would make the 'frames' around the bottom island alot darker.

Yeah, I just made that in about 15 mins from a screen I took from IL:2, and im not that good at photoshopping... I just needed something to replace the booring windows' standart wallpaper. Btw, are there any good guides for image editing? I could use some practise. And what programs do you use? Freeware or commercial?

I never realy read any tutorials about graphics editing, I just played alot myself and found out how to use different tools effectively. Still I atended to additional lectures on politechnique, was pretty useful too.:)

Try using brush, sample color from the edges, darken it in palette, then select option darken from brush options and paint those lightly with reduced brush fill and strenght. You can also select the bright places with magic wand to avoid darkening anything around, to select more than one part, hold down shift.

This is pretty hard, because the color around those areas isn't steady. And I can't find the darken option from brush options, but I can just darken the color in the palette right? I'm using program called "Photo Studio 5", which I got for free with my scanner. It isn't perfect, and im looking for a better program, but it has some nice features.

Well, I just suggest picking color wich is most similar to every bit in those white edges. As for program, download Photoshop CS2 trial version, it's only for 30 days but it's a very nice program. I myself would suggest using 64/52/41 in RGB scale for darkening those.

Thanks, it looks better now. I used little bit darker and more red color, though.
