    Default Looking for cool desktop pictures!

    Hey fellas, I moved to a new city for work and want to decorate my apartment. I plan on putting a 'rasterized' picture on the wall. The larger the picture, the less pixelated it will be when you rasterize it. I snagged a cool pic from the documentary 'burn' but its all fuzzy and too small. Looking for pics similar.

    Why don't you go to where you ripped this photo from and rip some more. There is nothing like a thief using someones else photo(s) without their permission.

    You've got to be kidding me. I took a screen shot from a video, so I can make a poster for my apartment. Did I ever say I have any intention of selling it? I would like to know how you got permission to use your avatar photo and what kind of royalties you are paying for it.

    Thanks for the picture Truck93

    Are we paying royalties to the Yankees, mario Puzo the author of The Godfather),The Three Stooges and Family Guy?

    At least I bought one of Paul Comb's "Drawn By Fire" 2012 calendars, I have autographed copy #1!
