I would much rather see vector art being produced for backgrounds,  
calendars etc. Photos are problematic in the sense of file size and  
subject matter. Backgrounds are simply that - backgrounds. Simple,  
non-distracting , pleasing to the eye images are best. From a  
professional standpoint, detailed backgrounds are just too distracting.  
If you want to have a picture of your cat on your screen, go nuts. Its  
your desktop. But for the general populace,  Keep It Simple, Sir :)
