Here is the LINK again. I don't know what happened. Sorry about that.Yeah I pretty much taught myself everything I know on how to make a wallpaper. I've used tutorials and different stuff over the years but mostly I learned how to use Photoshop on my own. My dad taught me how to use it when I was young.

oh, and the link isn't working... can you help?
Thank you. Yeah, my first one kind of sucked XD. Thank you so much for the advice. I've only done E-cards until now, so Wallpapers are foreign to me. I actually was looking for a guide and couldn't find one.
Please don't take this the wrong way as I am going to give you some tips when it comes to making wallpapers. When creating a wallpaper it usually takes time,dedication,a high quality image or images,and an idea.
I see several things wrong this wallpaper for instance. The quality of your image is too low for the high resolution. Also your text is poorly placed as it covers the girl's face. I would suggest maybe placing the text(if text is absolutely needed) on top above the characters because otherwise it takes away from the focus of the wallpaper which in this case are the characters. But with the text covering them, you can't really focus on them properly. This is just a suggestion, maybe find a higher quality image instead of resizing a poor quality image. I hope this helps. Also try experimenting with textures and effects which can also aid in creating a better wallpaper. Here is a useful guide to creating wallpapers and other graphic works. The guide is written by a good friend of mine. I hope this helps you. But is a good attempt at a wallpaper for a first one.
