Desktop iPhone and iPad January Chalkboard Wallpaper

 

Every month I like to change my computer desktop and iphone backgrounds to a fun desktop wallpaper.  This month I decided to make one of my own and and share it as a free download for TidyMom readers.

Free January Desktop Background Wallpaper

Chalkboard look it all the rage right now and I thought it would make a cute background for my computer, iphone and ipad!  I made them in 2 sizes that should fit most computer monitors, as well as a size for the iphone and ipad.

If you need help saving and setting your new background, it’s super easy, but I have some instructions for you to make it even easier.

How to set an image as your background wallpaper

Click to download the image size that best fits your monitor or device.

Then click the down arrow on the top left of the screen to save to your computer or device.

 After you save, find the image you just downloaded.  If you use Windows, find the image that you just downloaded on your computer and right click that image. A box will pop up and click Set as Desktop Background.

If you use a Mac you do the same thing; when you right click on the image you saved, a box will pop up and you’ll want to click Set Desktop Picture.

    Cheryl, 10 years ago I am pretty sure you and I would have met at some sort of Scrapbooking event. You always have such fun and creative ways of taking the ho-hum out of everyday life. Happy New Year!

    The wallpaper is so cute, but I can’t save it to my iPhone :(

    • TidyMom replied on December 31st, 2012 at 10:41 am

      You save it like you do any picture on your iphone.
      If you tap the picture it should give you the option to save it.

      Happy New Year!

      • Sobeida Rodriguez replied on December 31st, 2012 at 11:39 am

        I did, but when I select the download it won’t let me tap the picture to save it

        • TidyMom replied on December 31st, 2012 at 1:30 pm

          How strange – ok, I just changed it in the post
          To this link http://bit.ly/NewYearsforiphone

          That should work for sure!!
