Finding the right image
The quality of the image makes a huge difference to the look of your desktop. The right size of an image depends on the resolution of your PC and the size of your screen. You can use a photo editing software to edit an image. Remember to choose only high resolution images as desktop backgrounds. Make sure that the desktop icons don’t blend in with the image that you set as the background. You can save the image in the jpeg format and then it is ready for the process. You can also download a pre-made background, if you don’t have the time to edit your personalized one.
The basic procedure
The next step is to right-click the space on the desktop and click ‘Personalize’. Then, click ‘Desktop Background’. You will see a gallery of images that you can use as the background. You can use public pictures, sample pictures, solid colors, pictures, and Windows® Wallpapers. Once you select the right image, you can set the position of the image to ‘Fit to Screen’, ‘Tile’, or ‘Center’. You can also change the background color to match the image, if there is some blank space around the image. Then, click ‘OK’ to set the background in Windows Vista®.
The easiest way is to right-click an image and then select ‘Set as Desktop Background’ to set it as the background. Just make sure that the image is of a good size so that it shows up as crisp and clear.
