Unfortunately iMovie cut off the bottom and top of the screen. Luckily the top and bottom weren't that important.
To complete the tutorial you'll need Geektool 3 and an image editor.
For clarification here are the commands entered into Geektool-
Clock - date +%l:%M - Helvetica Nueue MEDIUM 288pt Date - date +%d - Helvetica Nueue Light 190pt Month - date +%B - Helvetical Nueue Light 64pt iTunes "Now Playing" label - osascript ~yourusername/Location/iTunesCurrentTrack.scpt iTunes "Current Track" - osascript ~yourusername/Location/iTunesNowPlaying.scpt
In photoshop -
. Open the desert image from Paul Gabrielo's blog. . Either do what I do in the tutorial OR do this: -- Use the select tool to create a box along the bottom sized for the dock. -- Use the Paint Brush tool, with black paint at 50% opacity and paint inside your selection. -- Your wallpaper is now much closer to the way that mine looks in the Flickr upload... shorter and cleaner than the one created in the tutorial.
. Save your image as Desert.png . Use the Magic Wand tool to select the whole sky and the dock . Delete the sky and dock leaving only the sand. . Press CMD+SHIFT+i to invert the selection. (instead of having the sky and dock selected, you now have the sand selected.) . Go up to Image and select Crop. . Save the image as DesertSands.png (PNG is important) . Save the .psd files if you want.
It's important to move BOTH the scripts and the sand image to a folder of your choice before continuing. If you run the scripts in Geektool while they are in your desktop, then you move them to a new folder, Geektool no longer knows where they are.
