Halloween Haunted House
And first up is this great haunted house desktop wallpaper. I found this picture last year and it’s one of the best I’ve seen. The detail is fantastic, the color is superb and the overall feel is wonderfully atmospheric. I already have this set as my background image. I will be dressing up the rest of the desktop with some Windowblinds Skins (namely RIP 2007), but this is a great image to creep out your desktop with. There is a ton of detail to look at; the dead trees and shrubs, broken stairs, crumbling headstones in the graveyard, and if you look carefully you might see a face or two in the windows. At least I do.
This image was created by Daniele Montella and can be found at the following websites:
Actually, if you do a Google image search for “haunted house” you find this image pretty easily. There are a couple of different size variations so you might be able to find a good one to tinker with.
The image is a little small to use as wallpaper, but a quick run through the resize function of Paint Shop Pro and I scaled it up nicely. I did it in small increments and I think the “jaggies” and “halos” are kept down to a minimum.
Daniele Montella maintains all copyrights to this image. I have simply made it a little larger to be displayed on a computer screen.
