Sputnik by teddybearcholla Sputnik by teddybearcholla
Do you remember this.... [link] ....

" History changed on October 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik I. The world's first artificial satellite was about the size of a beach ball (58 cm.or 22.8 inches in diameter), weighed only 83.6 kg. or 183.9 pounds, and took about 98 minutes to orbit the Earth on its elliptical path. That launch ushered in new political, military, technological, and scientific developments. "
I vaguely remember this in school...whatever grade a 9 year old would be in. But I am glad to have been born in this age!!!
BTW....it looks great on the desktop!!!
Download is widescreen 2560x1600

Aaaaah I let out a sigh of contemplative relief looking at this piece, it is so soothing on the ole brain patterns, does that mean the Russians are trying to brainwash me, I knew they would try, Oh why Oh why did I look at this artwork, now I will never be the same, Oh wait thats cos its been done by one of the beautiful people, whew!! I thought I'd gone communist for a moment there ha Ha Ha meanwhile its me ole brain just relaxing at the beautiful vibes coming from TBC's outer space gallery......lovely fantastic piece of art Barbs, I got a bit carried away with the compliment though ha ha Ha

You're welcome Barb, sorry if I got into too much, If you go back to my RC post, Giz had a good suggestion to start you off. The best way to put one together, is to take one apart! :nod: Good luck with Your PC, and I hope You're eyeballs are doing good! :heart: :hug:

Glad You're doing good Barb! :D :hug: The reason the pics in the RC's are different sizes is because the pics were made first and then the margins were set according to that particular pic. What I think Giz meant for You to do, was to open an existing RC in skintool rename it and save it as a new skin. Then, if You make a new background and keep the size the same as the original, and use it to replace the original, then the margins and everything should most likely work for it. The same will apply to the rest of the images, just keep the size the same as the originals. Also if You want to do one with a picture or something in the corner or at the top or something, find a existing RC that has one and edit it so that Your pic or design or whatever is in the same location and is the same size.

Feel free to keep bugging Me! :laughing:
