<--- Wallpaper is mine ;). Haven't used photoshop in a long time but will be practicing real hard. Does the wallpaper have to be in a certon size, or all 3 regular wallpaper sizes? or can it be in a size of choice by the designer?

Well, I haven't put a pen to paper (or rather fingers to word processor) in a long time, so I might try my luck with that. That, and the wallpaper category. Haven't really used Photoshop much in the past while either.

can be which ever size you want, but at least 1280 pixels wide, so it can be scaled down to fit most monitors.
