    I was working on a bitmap image for work, when I thought of the 3D Pipes screen saver. If you know how to apply an image to the 3D pipes Screensaver - Here's an image to try.
    Remember you have to convert it to a "bmp" file in order for it to work. :)

    Part 2

    For those of you that don't know how to apply the image. Right click the above image and save it to your C Drive.

    Open it in a picture editor & "save as" a bmp image

    Then go to your desktop & right click anywhere on the desktop (not any icons)

    A list will appear - the bottom choice will be "Properties"
    Click Properties

    Another box will open & it will look like this:

    At the top click on the "Screen Saver" tab - it will look like the above pic.

    On the white bar, on the left, click on the arrow & move up or down until you can click on 3D Pipes

    The pipes will appear

    Click on the settings button & this screen will appear:

    Click on the Resolution & drag the marker to the right.

    Click on the "Multiple" dot at the top Left

    Then click on the textured "dot"

    Then click on the "Choose texture" button - Find the File you saved in step one & double click it

    Click "OK"

    Then Click Apply at the bottom of the original screen

    Then at the middle right Click Preview....

    Two pipes will appear With The Gauge emblem on the sides of the pipe.

    It's a bit of work, but it's worth it..

    Enjoy!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D
