August Desktop Images

It feels like that time of year when changes are about to happen, but not quite yet. It’s like the calm before the storm. Summer vacation is ending and school is starting soon. We’re going to begin seeing those vibrant color changes in nature. Our wardrobe is going to go through that teenage state of dealing with hot days and cool nights after dusk. But right now we can still bask in calmness, in serenity. So I’ve picked some images that make me think “serenity”.

Every month I feature new images for download for you to use as your desktop background. Click to download it and see it at its huge size and resolution.

On a timer, press the button, and now EVERYONE run to get into position before the 10 seconds is up. This results in rosy-cheeked, happy-looking groups, though the group gets mo ...

The Magic of Photoshop
Everyone knows that models in advertisements and magazines have gone through hours of makeup, preparation, and photoshop to look as good as they do. But do you have any idea exactly how much change there really is? Dove (the soap brand) has come out with their Campaign for Real Beauty and feature a remarkable short film that shows the transformation from normal woman to billboard beauty with the aid of hairdressers, makeup artists, and photoshop whizzes. It's a smart and somewhat sad commentary on our distorted perception of beauty. What you see in magazines simply isn't real yet that is what we keep striving for. That's why we buy all o ...
