Where to Find Great High Resolution Wallpaper

I’ve never been big into custom wallpaper/desktop pictures on my computer, mainly because I’ve never found a really good repository of them. Today, via a random Google search though, I came across Interface Lift’s great wallpaper section.

Holy crap there’s a lot of good stuff in there. All super high-resolution. All unwatermarked. Sunset Beach is workin’ nicely right now:

Apparently the site has been around for at least a couple of years, but hey, it’s new to me, so I figured I’d spread the word to any of my fellow rock dwellers.

  1. Ooh, there *are* some nice desktops at that site. I just downloaded the “Ghost Fog” one — it’s nice because unlike some of the others, it’s fairly uniform across the whole pic so it doesn’t distract from finding things on the desktop.

    Thanks for the link!

    http://www.mandolux.com is great as well.

    Yes, tons of nice wallpapers there. Another to add to the list:

    I think I found that site the same way a while back. I keep going back there to get this “Panel” image. I don’t what it’s from, or why I like it so much, but it makes me feel like I’m rockin along in an old jeep or something.

    I’ve never been a great fan either, frankly because I am so picky and can’t be bothered to look. I often revert to plain colors also because I tend to use VNC a lot at work. I do however find some occasionally that I just have to have.

    http://www.hicksdesign.co.uk has a couple of nice ones, but there is a very limited number since it’s not really what the company is all about. I am currently sporting their Rissington wallpaper.

  6. It’s not free, but Earthdesk is pretty amazing. Before I discovered it I usually went with a solid grey background or something equally neutral.

    Lifehacker recently had about Social Wallpapering (http://socwall.com/). There is a decent collection of wallpaper and the “community” can vote on what they like. Like Interface Link, the wallpapers are grouped by resolution as well as a category (e.g. Computer, Art, Transportation, etc.)

    I thought this site was interesting: http://socwall.com/

  10. I’ve been using (and contributing to) http://www.caedes.net/ for years now

    Flickr anyone? I guess if you have an idea of what you’re looking for its the best resource I’ve found. Maybe no the best for simply browsing potential desktop photos.

    Man that’s weird to see that here – that beach is 5 mins from where I live!

  13. Jonathan E says:

    Awesome find, thanks for sharing Mike!

  14. DeviantART‘s Wallpaper selection is enormous and covers a lot more than just landscapes and skylines. It’s possible to search by resolution, and if you sort by popularity or downloads, you’re sure to get some high quality stuff.

    Ah, Interface Lift is a spectacular site for finding quality wallpapers.

    I also found Flickr’s The Last 7 Days photos to be another great place for some amazing wallpapers (though admittedly high resolution versions are only offered about 50% of the time).

    Nice find Mike! :)

    Thanks for the great other sites, everyone. Good stuff.

    Tom: Holy crap, that *is* weird. I dare you to go anywhere near those steps.

    Never heard of the site, I’m absolutely lovin’ it, thanks alot for posting!

    InterfaceLift is actually a good repository for CandyBar icons, the primary reason I’ve kept that link nestled in my bookmarks for the last few years. For wallpapers, however, I’ve been a subscribing member of the aforementioned digitalblasphemy.com since early 2001. It costs $25 the first year and $15 to renew, but the artist Ryan Bliss has built a collection easily worth that and more over the years. The quality of the images are second to none, and the added bonus is that he renders images in a variety of formats: Standard, Widescreen, Double Screen, Triple Screen (double and triple widescreen as well), and more recently iPhone-sized.


    There’s a preview of the more recent stuff he’s completed. Highly recommended from a longtime member.

    I like Interfacelift as well as Caedes.net, however, I found that Digital Default is coming up quickly and there are a lot of nice features on the site as well. I have donated some of my work there.

    My favourite wallpaper site:

    Just HD resolution wallpapers and if you want to download one, the wallpaper will automatically resized for your screen resolution. Awesome!
