Just as there are people who can live their whole life with the default wallpaper of the Windows operating system, without ever being disturbed by seeing the same blue box day after day, there are other people who, on the other hand, cannot spend too much time without looking for some new and beautiful image to decorate their wallpaper.
As variety is what enriches life, today we bring you these recommendations of websites where you can download the best wallpapers found throughout the Internet.
Without further ado, here you will find a very good selection of wallpapers for all tastes.
Abduzeedo is a design blog that for many years has been publishing a section called “wallpaper of the week” where you can get a lot of incredible images to use as wallpaper. Most of them are images created exclusively for the site, so you can find many unique and quite spectacular backgrounds.
Concept Art World is a website that became famous for hosting thousands of concept art images that in many cases belong to famous works, whether they are video games or movies, or other forms of art expression. Many of these images are simply spectacular and are in a high enough resolution (which is perfect) to be used as wallpaper.
If you like video games and consider their images as art on a visual level, then it is very possible that you will fall in love with this website. In Dead End Thrills they are dedicated to uploading screenshots made inside games and edited so that they look as spectacular as possible. It’s worth mentioning that this is a practice that has become increasingly popular, and taking screenshots from video games is something that helps to achieve extraordinary images.
Desktopography is already a legendary site for fans of customizing wallpapers. Although their last “exhibition” of wallpapers was in 2017, in that time they collected 13 years of wallpapers, which can be downloaded in multiple and varied formats. Most are illustrations and abstract landscapes that seek to pay homage to nature.
Justin Maller is a very talented illustrator who has been publishing lots of his illustrations in wallpaper format for years. Some of his oldest collections can be found in Facets, but they are still simply spectacular.
This page is the personal website of the photographer John Carey, where you can find an endless number of photographic wallpapers of enormous quality. Carey has been publishing on the Internet for over a decade some of his best photographs in the right format, to be used as wallpapers.
In Justin Maller’s personal portfolio (mentioned a couple of lines above), you can find his selection of more recent images, as well as enough abstract art and magnificent illustrations of famous people from science fiction or real life.
Simple Desktops is already “an old acquaintance” where you can find exactly what its name implies: simple wallpapers. It is a site that only uploads minimalist wallpapers and follows certain rules to stay that way: no gradients, no shadows, no words or watermarks and no bright effects.
Unsplash is one of the best wallpaper websites in existence. In general, it is a fabulous free image bank that has become in a few years one of the best photographic repositories on the Internet. Unsplash photos are always of high quality, and whether they are labeled as wallpapers or not, there are plenty of images to choose from as wallpapers.
WallpaperHub is an independent site created by Michael Gillet as a way to collect all the wallpapers of Microsoft products, available in multiple resolutions including 4K and even higher quality formats.
