Everyone has an inherent fascination with desktop wallpapers. Operating system developers spend a long time shipping the perfect set with a new OS release, even commissioning photographers to shoot suitable, vivid images.
We’ve certainly covered wallpapers in the past – rounding up gorgeous Mac wallpapers, a selection of iPhone backgrounds, and even running our own wallpaper competition. Today we’re looking at 7 different places to find your own wallpaper inspiration. Hopefully you’ll find something you like!
Another huge thank you to everyone who took the time to enter our desktop wallpaper competition. We’ve already announced the winners, and today we’re making all the other entries available for use on your desktop.
Just over 160 of the best wallpapers are rounded up here. You can click on any image to download the full-size version (each wallpaper is at least 1920x1200px in size). Entries are also available on Flickr.
After a great deal of deliberation, we have decided upon the winners of our desktop wallpaper competition (in conjunction with PSDTuts+). Thank you to everyone who entered. There were so many fantastic entries, choosing only ten winners was incredibly difficult.
The brief was to design an original wallpaper with a theme centred around Apple, AppStorm, or Lightning. We had a fantastic selection of entries – some covering all three of these areas, others covering one or two. The winning wallpapers cover a broad range of styles and techniques.
Without further ado, here are the ten lucky winners:
We’re kicking off a new competition today. It’s slightly different this time, and we’re partnering with one of our sister sites Psdtuts+ for this one. We’re looking for your best lightening themed wallpaper design, incorporating a Mac or AppStorm theme.
Up for grabs are numerous cash prizes, a vareity of Mac applications, and a 1-year membership to Psd Plus. It’s going to be an awesome contest, and you stand to win a copy of Things, Pixelmator, and ExpanDrive.
Good luck, and I look forward to seeing some of your desktop wallpaper designs!
One thing I try to keep on my Mac is a clean and organized desktop. Sometimes when working on larger projects I let it slip and never really get around to cleaning it up like I should. Eventually, when I do get up the courage to try and organize all of the files into folders and subfolders, I find myself wondering where I put that one file I need at that moment and wishing I would have just left everything as it was.
DeskShade from MacRabbit is an application that allows you to cover up all of that clutter with a background image of your choice. It also allows you to require a password to unlock the computer and get back to the main desktop so you can see and use all of that clutter again while preventing others from beating you to it.
A stylish wallpaper need not be confined to your desktop (though some beautiful ones are available), and I wouldn’t want your iPhone to feel left out of the action. For this reason, I’ve been hunting for a collection of 50 gorgeous, stylish and funky iPhone/iPod Touch wallpapers to use with your device. Many are sized for the iPhone in particular, but would work with any mobile device.
I’ve split the collection down into a few different categories for easier browsing; Apple & Technology, Typography & Design, Cartoons, Photo Manipulation, and Abstract. There’s something for everyone, and I hope you end up with an iPhone sporting wonderful wallpaper attire!
Having a beautiful desktop background can be a fantastic motivator – unfortunately it can be difficult to sort the great from the ghastly when it comes to wallpaper design. To make the search easier, we’ve hand picked a selection of 50 stunning desktop images for your viewing pleasure.
