So, here we are!
Windows XP has shocked me by developing an unexpected ‘feature’.
As I was in a bid to design a pretty backdrop – I thought I’d save a 4 pixel image and save it as a bitmap. When previewing it as a Windows backdrop – I forgot to set the bitmap to tile instead of stretch. What I expected to happen was that some nasty pixilated blocks would appear on the screen.
But no! Instead a pretty gradient graced my monitor.
Obviously there’s limits to what kinds of gradients you can have – but it’s nice that it happens nevertheless.
