Where the hell do you find decent wallpapers these days? I don't seem to have anything any more and I'm feeling the itch to customise…

I just use some of my renders as wallpapers. Sometimes I'll fart around in something like JWildfire and render out a batch of fractals all at once.

Ah. I'm currently using a tiled lotus pond background by Vivian Ng but I've had it a while and was looking to see what else there was.

I feel like there's tons of websites out there. I typically just Google "(my resolution) wallpaper" and go from there.

For anime and game wallpapers, I go to Danbooru or Konachan. Sometimes I make my own using different sources.

I use google search usually. 4chan has an entire forum dedicated to anime wallpapers which I find really useful but my school has blocked 4chan and I'm a boarding student so lol.

i just use any image big enough to fit my desktop res. oftentimes i'll just google image search something i think would be neat, set the minimum size to w/e my resolution is, and then use the "fill" fit position.

i used to use interfacelift but it seems like that just turned into one of those generic wallpaper portal sites you always see on google images

i've used that before (it's where i found my laptop wallpaper) but only the SFW one cuz i don't get the point of NSFW wallpapers, and even then not that often

Google image search is great. Pick a subject, pick a resolution, pick a shade. I finally changed my wallpaper for the first time in about 10 months after upgrading to a QHD (2560x1440) monitor. My old one didn't have a higher resolution available so I had to go searching. I settled on the Deathstar from Rogue One.

Lately I've been producing images using those GD scripts at the same resolution as my screen. Previously I would use screenshots of planets or oddball edited photographs (see: header image I use on Twitter).

I usually have anime- or game-related wallpapers, so sources for me are Danbooru or Pixiv (both with NSFW potential), official websites for the thing in question, or screenshots in the case of anime, or sometimes extracted images in the case of games.


(fanart via Danbooru; official art; official art extracted from game (IIRC); 3x fanart via Danbooru or Pixiv; 2x official art via official website; screenshot from anime)

Falcom's website has a variety of wallpapers, and I tend to use some of the Ys and Sorcerian ones a lot.

I've been using this one for about as long as I've had this laptop (and I think maybe for a while on my previous one too, but I can't check because it's dead)

I haven't really used anything but interfacelift since 2010. 1080p was pretty much the death of fun/fancy wallpapers for me.

It's a shame, really. There's all these old wallpapers that I used to like, but now that screens have gotten so big, they're just "normal image" sizes now, so to speak.

I haven't really found very much else to catch my fancy since about... late 2009-early 2010, I'd guess. Once in a while I'll find some other stuff, though.

The problem, honestly, is that there's no real way to have a different random image on each monitor.* You've gotta stitch them all together or just use multiple-monitor-spanning backgrounds. The former is what I've been doing, and the latter just doesn't catch my interest.

*this may have changed as of Windows 10, I guess. I don't run Windows anymore, so I honestly wouldn't know

...I'm also picky and can't stand things being scaled up, maybe it's just me. I actually started making wallpapers after playing with the idea of resizing something, because I wanted to use it as a wallpaper but it was too low-res.

I have no idea how or why, but I have about 1700 wallpapers. It is truly a mystery as to where they came from, I seem to just automatically save cool pictures.

I only have a few wallpapers and they seem to mostly be scenery, such as this one. I would link the other ones but I can't find their source.
