HD Wallpapers

Wallpapers, screensavers, desktops, or whatever they call it. These are pictures of just anything you can think of. Of course, back in the days (90s that is), when the PCs weren't as powerful as today, wallpapers were simply dull plain colors, or something not so spectacular. This is because wallpapers do eat a lot of resources back then. Today however, there are already a lot of high definition wallpapers to choose from. There are a lot of genres, from metallic, nature, scenes, to even anime and cartoons. Really your imagination is the limit.

Defining High Definition

OK, so what's really HD? Well, HD can be about the size of 1280 x 720 pixels minimum. Anything above that size is pretty much considered as high definition. Several monitors and televisions nowadays do are running on 1080p, or having a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Who Makes These Wallpapers?

The most common are photographers and graphic designers. There are also artists who transform their works into data and convert it to a digital image. Do note that it's pretty much hard work to create these, as there are even digital studios whose sole purpose is to create wallpapers. Some bloggers also create wallpapers of their own. Usually, creating these would cost you a lot (like logo and graphic design), so it is really fortunate that you can find many high def ones free in the net.

Choosing A Wallpaper Theme Tips

Since there are a lot of them available, you may find it a little bit tricky to find one that would be perfect for your screen. To start, here are some tips to help you out:

  • Always go for HD. Why? simply because they're more beautiful and revitalizing. There are a lot of cool HD wallpapers available out there in the net. Some maybe paid, but there are sites offering these for free. Just google around and you'll find one.
  • Go along your interests. Love anime? Then search for cool anime wallpapers. Pets? No problem, as they're also plenty.
  • Go for lighter tone colors. Generally, you would want a screen with an overall light feel as these are really calming. Go for skies, clouds, or other scenic stuff.
  • Use interesting photos of family or friends. Of course, editing it a bit, like applying filters and enhancing colors will make it better. This is recommended especially if you're out-of-town, or is working abroad, as it'll make you feel better just by looking at the screen.

And if you're really in it, there are programs that allow you to change your wallpaper on a regular basis. Heck you can even use a slideshow as a wallpaper if you want. I'm not sure for a Mac, but those with PCs using Windows can simply use this by changing there screen preference and properties.

In the end, it all boils up to your preference. So have fun in choosing your wallpaper!
