hi, you might also want to try http://www.desktopnexus.com/ as the best thing i like about them is they figure out what is your resolution for you which is really nice for non-power users.

Since Desktops seem to be an ever popular theme, I have uploaded some of my favorite Desktops. They are of very different nature and origin. Maybe some of you like a few for their own system.

What's the point in living with such depressive wallpapers? Isn't life depressed enough already? I like wallpapers that cheer me up.

whs, for some reason my computer won't open your favorite desktops (says the file is corrupted), but I find these cheerful:

I downloaded one from your first post, but I won't say which:)

Aleeve, where did you get the one that just says dark? I like black, white and grays!

techgranny, I am sorry you could not download the "favorite desktops". I wonder why. I just downloaded them myself (without problems) AND I put them also on Photobucket - just for you. From there you can pick and choose them individually.

Well, occasionly you find a few nice ones here, although most are rubbish!

Please could you clarify? :)

If you checked my photobucket album, there are quite a few black-ish ones there!

Sorry Aleeve, it's the last one on the first page, dark.jpg (the building with the portrait on it) I like that genre; edgy but not too weird:)
Thanks whs, nice wallpapers:) This is the first problem I've ever had opening a file, wish I knew what the problem is.

techgranny, I assume you knew that the file was a .zip folder that had to first be unzipped.

Hmm, I have no problem with Jessica Alba. But techgranny may spank you. She likes us to keep our "G" rating.

@JonMCC33,
Nice site with beautiful back grounds.
Like the fact one can choose the screen resolution plus gives ratios.
Good book mark for all.
Kindest Regards,
Rick P. ♥ :)
