Hey, what's up? My name is Chase, and today I'm going to show you how to measure your screen size for wallpapers. First, we're going to, on a Mac, click on "system preferences." We are going to want to click within the hardware menu on display, and right now it's going to pop up with several different resolutions. What our current resolution is is going to be listed in the gray field right here, which is 1280 X 720 p. The best thing to do for a wallpaper image is to apply that 1280 X 720 p to your wallpaper so that it fits perfectly, a little larger, a little smaller, it's going to adjust the size of the image, and it's not going to fit and fill the screen properly. But, if you apply the exact size, which is 1280 X 720 in this case, it's going to work perfectly. If you're using a PC, it's very simple, also, to change or check the screen resolution size, and you'll just want to right-click on the Desktop, and you can either go to display settings or screen resolution settings based on which version of Microsoft you're running. My name is Chase, and today I taught you how to check the screen size for wallpapers. Thanks for watching.
