so I was browsing online today when I found this stunning set of images of earth at night, taken from space. Its awesome, they look almost like some google earth screenshot because of the clarity (still not so sure its a real image...but maybe its just really good). anyway I set one as my desktop wallpaper but was disappointed that because it was such a small image there was either a ton of black area around it or it was strangely stretched. so I edited the image to make it 1440x900 pixels (my desktop size) the result looks great, so I thought I might share it with all the good people at ifans.com! for best results set it to centered view if you have a smaller monitor or stretch if you have a larger one (if you have a really big monitor like the new mac monitors you may need to do center instead) this was easy to make, so if you need a bigger one just open it up in the center of a document the size of your screen and copy squares of the space background to the missing parts to make it whole. because of the pattern it blends perfectly.
