    Wallpapers / Backgrounds


    Would some of you mind posting your links where you find your wallpapers?

    I'm particularly interested in those backgrounds that aren't so "busy" so to speak, such as simplistic, or minimal gradients. I'm already familiar with all of the sites below, but perhaps some of you can recommend some other good wallpaper sites:

    Eyecandy for your KDE-Desktop - KDE-Look.org

    Eyecandy for your GNOME-Desktop - GNOME-Look.org

    GNOME: The Free Software Desktop Project

    http://www.desktopnexus.com/

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the links!

    Some of those in the 3rd link appear to be what I'm looking for. I'll go there now and spend some time to see what I can find.

    I use mostly deviant art. However I must admit that if you are looking for something concrete googling for it might be a better choice, since the quantity of the contents in deviant is a bit overwhelming.

    I'm in the same boat as i92guboj. Most of my wallpapers come from a Google search.
    I do like to look at Vlad Studios and Deviant.

    No, googling didn't help, as I pretty much googled my googlers off before starting this thread, but nothing of value. I posted here hoping that someone might know of some obsure website with some good minimalistic backgrounds. I'm a paid subscriber to Vlad Studios and have been to Deviant many times, but all their papers are too busy for my tastes, or there is something else that I don't like about them if they are minimalistic enough.

    It looks like I'll need need to open up GIMP and create my own.

    Thanks anyway to all that responded.
