11.7. One-Click Desktop Backdrop

iPhoto's desktop-image feature is the best way to drive home the point that photos of your children (or dog, or mother, or self) are the most beautiful in the world. You pick one spectacular shot to replace the standard Mac OS X swirling blue desktop pattern. It's like refrigerator art on steroids (Figure 11-17).

Figure 11-17. Top: Folder and icons may occasionally mar a desktop photo's full-screen magnificence, but look at the bright side: The fact that you're getting documents in your children's eyes will be all the more incentive for you to become a better housekeeper.
Bottom: In System Preferences, use this pop-up menu to tell the Mac how you want to handle desktop pictures that don't precisely match the dimensions of your screen.
