If you love the style of Tigers Aqua Blue Background but want it in a different colour it's easy.

Open Photoshop and then

File>Open

Go To

Main HD>Library>Desktop Backgrounds>Aqua Blue

Now simple press Apple(Command) U and click colorise then adjust the levels to the colour you want

Gimp - does most of what you can do in Photoshop, but for FREE

Didn't know whether you mean single green and pink, or mixed together, so I did the together one:

Eh here's a quick mock-up of a green/purple wallpaper. Although personally I think silver and aqua would've been better.

That's very good Takuro! What did you do it in? Gimp? I have trouble with Gimp, I'm much more used to Photoshop...

Thanks. I just used Photoshop. I used some gradient overlays and custom selections. The "add to selection" and "remove from selection" sub-options come in handy. :D
