Plaid lovers unite!

These are BlackDog's older plaid wallpapers.  They're just as cool, but have fewer sizes available.  Have fun with them all!

When you decide which wallpaper image you like best, download the correct size for your computer's screen resolution - the links are shown under each of the small images.  If your screen resolution is different from any of the options, choose the largest size available.  Easy instructions to help you set up your wallpaper (both PC and MAC instructions) are set out below.

Installation Instructions
(Your screen resolution is )

Windows
  • Click the link of the image size that fits your computer's screen resolution.
  • When the image has fully loaded in your web browser, right click on the image.  A pop-up box will appear.
  • Simply right-click the image, and, depending on your version of Windows, select Set as Background or Set as Wallpaper.
  • DO NOT select "Set as Desktop Item...."  This will not set the image as your wallpaper.  It will set it as part of Microsoft's "Active Desktop" which will either overlap or show behind your wallpaper.  You will pull your hair out trying to get rid of it.  (See below for some helpful hints if this happens.)
  • If you want to save the picture on your hard drive, right-click the image, click Save Picture As, rename the file whatever you like, and select a folder to store the image.
  • Change your mind about your wallpaper later?  You can overwrite your wallpaper by saving a new image or by going back to what you had before. Right-click the desktop, select Properties, and click the Background tab (or in XP, after you select Properties, click the Desktop tab).  Highlight the item you want from the list of options and click OK.
  • That's it.
Macintosh
  • Click on the image you'd like to set as your wallpaper in the resolution that is appropriate for your screen.
  • Allow image to fully load on this page.
  • Move the cursor over the image.
  • Hold down the mouse button over the image and drag the image to your desktop.
  • Open "System Preferences" and select "Desktop."
  • Drag the image into desktop pictures window.
  • Select the image as your desktop. (You may need to restart your computer for wallpaper to be installed on your desktop.)

Mac Users (OS 9.0)

  • Click on the image you'd like to set as your wallpaper in the resolution that is appropriate for your screen.
  • Allow the image to fully load on this page.
  • Move the cursor over the photo.
  • Hold down the mouse button until the drop-down menu appears.
  • Choose "download image to disk" (save image to your Mac's hard drive).
  • Open the control panel, click on "Appearance" and then select the Desktop tab.
  • If there is a "remove picture" button, click it to remove the current desktop window. Then click "place picture."
  • A dialog box will appear. Load new wallpaper from the location you selected to save the image on your computer. Press "Open."
  • Choose "position automatically."
  • Click "Set Desktop."
  • Check desktop for new wallpaper. (You may need to restart your computer for wallpaper to be installed on your desktop.)
Note:  If these instructions do not work for you, check your computer's "Help" files for how to install computer desktop wallpaper on your system.

Note:  BlackDog's Computer Desktop Wallpaper is free for you to use on your personal computer's desktop only.  BlackDog's wallpaper is not public domain and may NOT be distributed by any means.  If you see these images on another site, you will know that they are being distributed illegally.  Please let us know about it.

Note:  Some people have problems changing their desktop wallpaper and having it stay changed.  If you have a problem like that, chances are that when you installed your wallpaper, you selected "Set as Desktop Item."  That did not set the image as your wallpaper.  Rather it set the image as part of Microsoft's "Active Desktop" which will either overlap or show behind your wallpaper.  If that's the case, check to see if you have "Active Desktop" activated on your windows system.  (You'll have to look at your individual computer's help files to find out where that is located and how to deactivate the Active Desktop.)  Try unchecking Active Desktop and then reboot.  That should allow you to change the wallpaper image.  There is nothing in any of the images, or anything else, on this website that would stop you from freely changing your computer desktop wallpaper.
