Free December Desktop

I made a desktop for you with Home for the Holidays.  It's yours free!  The file is a layered .psd file.  There's space for 3 photos and I have clipping masks for them.  For those of you who don't know how to use clipping masks, it's really simple! Just move the photos you want to the top of the desktop file. Select one of the +photo layers and move your photo above it.  Hover your mouse between the photo and the +photo layer and hold the Alt key (Option if on a Mac).  When you see two interlocking circles, click with your mouse and your photo should conform itself to the boundaries of the mask.  Hit Ctrl + T to get your transform box and you can resize your picture to fit and rotate it if you want. Easy peasy!  If you have questions or get stuck, feel free to use the Contact Me page.

One thing to keep in mind...the screen resolution on my monitor is 1366 x 768 so that is the size I made the desktop.  You may need to resize it to fit your monitor.  The easiest way to do this is to open a document the size of your screen and then move the desktop file to the top of it and resize using the transform handles. :)

Hope you like it!
