Desktop Backgrounds

Posted in Design at Sunday, 02 April 2006 02:05 W. Europe Daylight Time

I am constantly in search for good background images. To me, a good background image has a nice motif (that is, looks good), is colorful in an undistracting way and has large uniform areas to place icons and other stuff. High resolution and great quality is also important since my desktop is 1600 by 1200 pixels.

I've collected a pretty large amount of images over the years, but the choice of the right image is always a rather longish process that isn't repeated too often. Once an image has been chosen, I'll stick to it for weeks or even months. The last one pleased my eyes since last August.

The other day I found a new resource for inspiring desktops: Mando Gomez' mandolux. This guy is specialized in high-quality photographs and illustrations that are even available for multi monitor configurations. The site even offers a RSS feed, the images are also available on flickr. So this is my new desktop, delighting me for next couple of months:

Danke fuer die Tipps, hab nun auch einen schoenen Hintergrund... nach Jahren der Tristesse und Trostlosigkeit und Traurigkeit und mehr. Hat zwar etwas laenger gedauert, aber dank meines sagenhaften Gedaechtnis (oder war es doch eher die sagenhafte Suchmaschine auf deiner Seite) hab ich schliesslich gefunden was ich wollte!!!
