Decorate your desktop for Independence Day

The United States' Independence Day is coming soon. If you want to show your love of country by adjusting your desktop background, we have some good choices for you.

In 2010, I published a TechRepublic Photo Gallery of images appropriate for Independence Day here in the United States. Since July 4th is just around the corner, I thought I'd highlight the gallery and note some of my favorites.

Note: To get the best image for your desktop, you will have to go to the gallery and click the View Full Size link of your desired image to reach its maximum resolution.

Any way to make the images on this page link directly to the full size images?

I right click and load my Fractal rescale program to 2x or 4x the picture and save it. Then I crop it to a 16x10 format and save it as a jpg or wallpaper. If you do not have a fractal rescaling program try Fast Stone's Image viewer or Photoshop, they both use fractal scaling to give more natural looking images.
