The Easiest (And Best?) Way To Search For Beautiful Wallpapers In Your Specific Screen Resolution And Size
There are undoubtedly a lot of wallpaper sites. Even more undoubtedly, most of them suck, both in content and filtering capabilities (by resolution, theme, etc).
My preferred way until recently was Deviant Art, because it had a lot of content and very nice filtering – I could specify my exact resolution.
However, as of some time ago, Deviant Art browsing by resolution disappeared, as evident from trying to find it on their site and from the comments on this post announcing the capability in the first place.
Sometimes the solution lies right in front of our eyes – we just have to open them to see it.
A while ago, Google Image Search expanded their support for image size filtering (small, medium, large) to include the actual image size via this query:
And because it's Google, you can add search terms to narrow down the subject.
Here are some examples.
Example 1: "wallpaper"
The image size is so specific that it's usually not even necessary to include the word "wallpaper" – most of the results will already be wallpapers, except maybe for a few desktop screenshots.
Example 2: "nature"
Example 3: "futuristic"
Example 4: "cars"
Example 5: "babe"
imagesize:1680×1050 babe (be careful if you have SafeSearch off ;-] )
