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:
- Blatte's Fractal Backgrounds - Hundreds of high resolution fractal images. Since fractals can be generated at any resolution, these really look awesome on a large format monitor.
- Mandolux - For both single monitor AND dual monitors up to 1920x1200 EACH MONITOR! You lucky dogs with 2x 20" flat panels will have to let me know how they look. Click on the "archive" link to see the other images.
- Tenser's Large Backgrounds Post - Some other sites, other than the ones listed above. Many of the generic background sites have a lot of smaller images to wade through, which is why I highlighted the two above.
I'll follow up with a post to freeware that can be used to cycle your dektop backgrounds automatically.
