Dear Friends,
Can some body tell me how to make an installable Wallpaper. For
instance, If I have a image or picture which is worth a wallpaper, how
can I make it available to our community. For that matter even about
themes. Do I need to have any software knowledge. I am not a person
from software, any body know please help me. You can also send me some
material regarding that. Regards,
