Wallpaper on Two Monitors
Nov 8, 2010

I now have a two monitor setup. A new widescreen 1920x1200 and my original 1280x1024.

Here is what I have been doing to create wallpapers for the widescreen.

1. Crop image to widescreen aspect ratio, set custom size at 1700px x 1063px.

2. Select a color in the image I want for a border.

3. Add canvas to resize at 1920x1200px's with my selected color as my new canvas color.

4. New image is 1920x1200px's with nice border where my icons, on the left side of screen and gadgets, on the right side of screen reside.

My problem is this image does not fit on the 1280px x 1024px screen. How can I use a different image that is resized for the smaller second screen, if this is possible. Even a totally different image.
Can it be done?

Newbie, having fun.
