Hi everyone,
I have windows 7 on my computer and I want to make a photo I took as my desktop's background, but I want it to be a smaller size and only in the middle of the screen. Everytime I try to make it my background (even after re-sizing it) it takes up the whole space. It is possible to make it my background but only in the center of the screen and not take up the whole screen? Thanks for your help!

create a black (or any other color) background according to your screen size, (preferably photoshop)
and resize the desired picture in that screen.
so that you have your picture with a big border.
save as, set as desktop background.

Or, you can right-click the Desktop > Personalize > Background > Browse > choose the folder containing the image you want to use > change Picture position to Center > Save changes
