January is the start of new things! In many places in the northern hemisphere, it's also rather cold. Our own Lonely Cat (Hammie) represents the season: Looking back, looking ahead. And he's our free desktop wallpaper cat for January 2013!

Starting with last month, the wide wallpaper is now wider than I had been using: It's now native at 1920 by 1080 to cover cinema displays. This size also fits 1600x900, 1366x768 - up or down in size quite a bit... basically any wide monitor size. The older wide monitors like mine will leave a little bar at the top and bottom (mine is 1680x1050, it's an older "wide" resolution) but it will look fine - especially if you change your desktop background color to black.

We haven't forgotten the older 4:3 ratio, screens either! My sister still has that, at 1280x1024 or 1024 by 768. The one below is that standard ratio (not wide) and will work on anything from 800x600 on up!

SIMPLE WALLPAPER HOW-TO: Click on the image of your choice to see the full size version, then right-click on it (one-button Macs, use CONTROL-Click).and select "Set as Desktop Background".(Firefox) / "Set As Background" (Explorer) - This also saves the image to your computer. Using Firefox, it will usually look best if you use the options "Stretch" and a black background, like this:

The latest versions of the Chrome browser make it a little harder: Right-click and select "Save image as..." Remember where you saved the file. Then go to your desktop, right-click, select the "Desktop" tab, click "Browse" and navigate to the place where you saved this file. Select the file and click OK.

I can't believe it's 2013 already. There were times I thought I wouldn't make it to the next year. Well... for all I know, I didn't, since I'm pre-scheduling this at Christmas time. Thank you for allowing me to  share lives and adventures of the feral cats with you. I wish you a happy new year.
