Create digital scrapbook for desktop using Picasa

Desktop wallpapers are great tools to make your digital workspace a little “homey”. I often use nature desktop wallpapers if I'd like to kickback and relax, and use sports photos if I'm at work and apply Bible verses to soothe and remind me of heavenly things. Every time I need a change of desktop "scenery" I'd go to the internet to search for great desktop wallpapers.

Picasa offers a great way to make personalized desktop wallpapers. It's the COLLAGE tool of Picasa (if you don’t have Picasa2 yet, you can download it here).
Follow these simple steps to make your own desktop wallpaper:

STEP 1: Open your Picasa2 application and browse the folder where your photos are.

STEP 2: Select at least 8 photos that you want to make part of your desktop collage. (Hold down the control or shift key for multiple selections), and press the COLLAGE button below.

STEP 3: From the pop-up window, choose TYPE=COLLAGE, OPTIONS=Your background color, LOCATION=Choose a folder… then press the "create button".


Now you have a desktop wallpaper full of your own photos! Neat eh?

Of cource, you can have other choice. You can use another gorgeous photo collage maker to create your own personalized desktop. And if you are a Mac user, you can select the best Mac collage maker.
