For this instructable you need
- A scanner
- A basic Image software. I will explain the steps with FastStone Image Viewer, but any imaging software can do the same. Another light and capable software is IrfanView.
Some links to download the software
Step 1: Scanning
Step 2: Image Resizing
Open the image with FastStone Image Viewer.
Adust image ratio.
Activate the CropBoard tool (picture 1). Set the Width:Height ratio to 4:3 (Picture 2). Now you can move and resize the cropping frame on the image and confirm with "Crop" button. In this step you can directly enter the final size (1024x768) to have an exact size cropping frame. Otherwise move to the next step.
Adjust image size.
If your image is larger or smaller than 1024x768 use the "Resize/Resample" button and enter the final image size (Picture 3). Now you can save the final image and use it as wallpaper.
Step 3: Artistic Desktop
You can download the images adjusted to 1024x768 and 1280x800 resolution.
