    I used to have as my wall paper that kick-ass shot of the sun setting over folsom and the fiery sky. Then I got a new monitor - nice 1280x920 HD wide screen. Problem is that the resolution of my photo's are so low that they look all grainy and blurry on my screen. #firstworldproblems

    Anyone have any CU football related photos that would be good for my wall paper and would look go on a large monitor?

    Thanks dood! I double checked and my IT guy was wrong. The resolution is 1920x1080, but those pics you posted look a WHOLE lot better than the ones I had tried before.

    Rep to you good sir!

    Sorry, couldn't upload the proper resolution directly to the thread... here are the pics in question (with the wrong resolution, of course):

    No sweat! 1920x1080 sounds a LOT more reasonable (and is actually HD)! ...might as well get you the pics in the proper res! ;)

    Edit: Sorry they're slow to download... I, unfortunately, don't have the fastest webserver on the block.

    I got him for you (actually helps me spread it around so I can go back and hit some of those who have been giving practice reports!).

    Where would an enterprising old Buff go to purchase a large copy of photo No. 2. IT's been my screen saver for the last several months but it would look great in my basement in my Buff shrine.

    Photo was posted as the "picture of the day" for the June 10, 2009 National Geographic.

    I'll bet you can purchase a larger copy for your basement by contacting Nat Geo.
