10 Great Websites to Download HD Wallpapers For Your Computer.
Are you tired of the current wallpaper? Well, everyone likes to add a little personalization to their computers to set them apart from the rest, and that usually starts with changing the wallpaper.
People often use Google Image Search to find new wallpapers for their desktop. But this is certainly not the best way, as most images are not displayed due to copyright issues. So, we’ve picked out some of the best (but little known) places to get HD desktop wallpapers.
The sites here have been selected based on their quality and quantity of wallpapers. Also, it doesn’t matter if you are using Windows, Linux, or Mac, as wallpaper simply depends on your monitor’s native resolution. So let’s take a look at some lesser known websites to get HD wallpapers. (In no particular order)
Websites to download HD wallpapers
Microsoft’s search engine Bing has high quality background wallpapers that they change every day. These wallpapers mainly include nature and wildlife. You can also download any wallpaper from the past five years.
It is also possible to automatically download wallpapers and set them as a background. But since you need to specify the source, the Bing watermark will be.
There are thousands of wallpaper websites on the internet, but Desktoppr feels different. The site only focuses on high definition wallpapers and uses Dropbox to upload and download wallpapers of your choice. It is a great tool to keep your desktop up to date as you can set your wallpaper to change automatically.
Desktoppr requires you to be connected to your Dropbox account as it always syncs with the servers to keep the download directory updated.
DeviantART is a social network for professional and hobbyist artists, where they can upload images and share their work with millions of colleagues who can rate their work. More than 100,000 images are uploaded every day, genres ranging from Art to Anime.
Luckily, they also have a wallpaper subsection that gets updated frequently. The best thing about downloading from DeviantART is that the wallpapers are brand new and downloaded by the artists themselves. So most of the wallpapers will be exclusive.
Dual screen backgrounds
Some people (like me) use two monitors to improve performance. And this site is for these people. It offers thousands of wallpapers for two monitors.
Dual monitor backgrounds are upscaled to have the largest dedicated dual monitor backgrounds on the web, and most of the wallpapers available here are of high quality and also have no watermarks.
InterfaceLIFT is another great resource for downloading high quality wallpapers. At the time of this writing, the site has over 2,600 wallpapers available in various resolutions.
A unique feature of this site is that you can choose to bulk upload multiple images, but this service is not free and will cost $ 0.05 per image.
Low poly wallpapers
This is a unique website on this list because the wallpapers are only low polynomial. So if you like images with angular geometry and vibrant colors, you should go here.
Although the selection of wallpapers is small, the quality is top notch.
There is a popular saying on the Internet: “If he is, then there is a subreddit for him.” And the same is true for wallpapers from Reddit.
For example, if you like stars, galaxy, etc., there is a SpacePorn subreddit, there is EarthPorn for earth wallpaper enthusiasts, and similarly there is a wallpaper subreddit for every popular genre, just google and you will find out.
As the name suggests, Simple Desktop offers simple and minimalistic wallpapers. So if you are easily distracted by most wallpapers, this one is for you. Minimalist wallpapers have nice, minimal colors or objects that soothe the eyes.
Most of the wallpapers here are made by Tom Watson, who is also the creator of the site.
Their motto is to create “wallpapers that are a little more distinctive than the average crowd,” and they certainly do the job as their wallpapers are exclusive to their website and not featured anywhere else.
A new set of quality wallpapers is released on this site every month. All wallpapers also have a calendar, but if you don’t like calendars, there is a version without a calendar.
Unfortunately, all wallpapers have a watermark, so this may not be all. At least not mine.
This is another great place to download wallpapers, where you can sort images to search by category, type, and resolution. High quality goes a long way, even if it means fewer wallpapers on a website.
However, there are no buttons to click and load the wallpaper, so you need to open the full image and right click to save the image, then replace that image with your desktop background.
So these were my top 10 places to get wallpaper. What are yours? If you think we are missing something, let us know in the comments below.
