The way I've always done it is to open up your favorite graphics editor, create an image with the height of your current resolution and a width that is double your current resolution. Then slap the two images you want as your wallpapers side by side, with their joining edge being directly in the middle of the image. Then save the image and set it as the wallpaper with the position set to tile. There may be a better way, but like I said, that's how I do it.

It's a program called ultramon. It's a lot easier than doing photo editing. Plus, you can set different screen savers for each monitor, have a separate taskbar on your second monitor, and change between wallpapers for each monitor on the fly. ultramon

ultramon is a must for dual mon users. it has useful options and after using it, you'll wonder how you could've ever done without it.
