1600x1200 Desktop Wallpaper


March 27, 2005 05:23 PM PST

Large format, high resolution desktop wallpapers and backgrounds (1600x1200) and larger aren't easy to find. Even through Google's image search, there's not a whole lot that comes up. This will hopefully change with the increase of high quality digital cameras, photoblogs and creative commons licenses.

Here are two sites that have awesome large format desktop wallpaper:

I'll follow up with a post to freeware that can be used to cycle your dektop backgrounds automatically.

Hmmm, now I'm curious. I'll check these sites out tomorrow and see if I can score up nice dual monitor wallpaper.

Dual backgrounds sound cool, but XP doesn't give you a way to select for each monitor. Need a stitching program or another solution.

You can at least paste the two images side by side into one wide image and XP will handle it right.

John, can you get multi-picture backgrounds into longhorn? You've got 16 months...

I'll get right on it.

Are you done yet?

Ok I've re-tooled all my machines with new high res wallpaper. There is an annoying thing about pasting images together for dual monitors that I forgot. If your primary desktop is your right monitor instead of your left, then you need to swap the images when you paste in order for them to display correctly. Also you need to set the background to 'tile'.
I'll be waiting for some info on cycling apps.
