    Sorry I have been slow on this but here are the first two. I have quite a few more to work on but they take a little time to do so i will update you as I add more.

    They look great.... I used to download a new wallpaper every month from This Site they have some really great pictures from all over the UK. I found the little calendar in the corner very handy.
    Edit I was putting forward the calendar not an alternative screensaver, just read it and didn't want you to take it wrong way :)

    Thanks Liam :) it was your great shots that produced these two to kick us off :-bd

    Thanks Snoops for the idea of the calendar, i'm not sure i'll have time to keep rotating the images adding calendars to them and the plan is, once i have a few more done, to create windows 7/vista background themes that you can download (in addition to the static images) and they will automatically rotate the images on the desktop every few minutes.

    For MAC users and Windows users that want to use the feature I'm going to try and get the backgrounds setup via RSS so they up date automatically for you but that's a little while off yet.

    OK upload just finished this second. Zip files have the individual images and the windows themes will install as your backgrounds so hopefully that will keep you all going for a little while.

    As Gary said, we need really high resolution images to do these as i zoom in on some to make different images. I have scraped a few through but will spend another couple of days on them once we have another selection. We can theme them and do all sorts but they look nice on my desktop so thanks to all that submitted the current batch.

    Need to get on with some work now! :D

    Great stuff and you're very welcome.

    I'm glad it's working for you and yes we'll be adding more once we get more pictures in. Hopefully everyone will be busy with their cameras when the sun is out so we can get some more high resolution pictures to play with and make some more :D
