We’re used to seeing beautiful photographs of Boston and New England around the Union Park Press office. After all, when you publish books about the Boston Harbor Islands, Greater Boston’s parks and gardens, and underwater photography from Cape Cod, you are bound to see some spectacular shots.
We have decided that it’s time to share some of those images with our friends and fellow New England-lovers by putting out a desktop calendar each month that uses an image from one of our books.
This month, we chose to represent December with a gorgeous landscape shot of The Breakers, the historic Vanderbilt mansion in Newport, Rhode Island. We will be profiling this stunning house museum again next week in our “Historic Homes for the Holidays” series, so be sure to check back soon!
We hope you enjoy this monthly series and that you come back next month to see what we have in store for January, 2012 (!!)
How to set this image as your Desktop Background:
- Download this for your desktop screen in resolutions of 1280 x 800 (small), 1440 x 900 (medium), or 1920 x 1200 (large), based on the size of your screen.
- Right-click (or ctrl-click for some Mac users) on the image, and chose the option that says, “Set as Desktop Background”, “Use as Desktop Picture”, — the exact wording will depend on the browser you use.
- If the image does not fit your desktop background neatly, you may have to go to your preference screen (on a Mac: System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop; on Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose “Fit to screen” as the display mode of your background image.
- Voila! You have a beautiful, seasonal desktop calendar to keep you on track all month long.
