Extended Desktop Wallpapers

These cool images by Mike Ruiz take the familiar Mac and Windows OS desktop wallpapers and extend them beyond their original frames.

A series of images with white area added to the sides and then put through Content-Aware Fill (a Photoshop CS5 tool that automatically generates content based on the existing content of the image and fills in the surrounding blank space). The resulting image is an extended view as interpreted by the software.
