The Best Places to Find High-Quality Wallpaper

These sites are given in no particular order; they’re all good websites and I invite you to check them out:

social wallpapering

1 23 2010 18 03 58 Best Places to Find High quality Desktop Wallpaper

Social wallpapering’s concept is simple: users submit and rate wallpapers; the best wallpapers, by user rating, reach the front page and get more exposure. This means the best wallpapers on the site are available as soon as you reach the homepage. You can also download collections of some of the wallpapers via the torrent links on the site’s menu.

Hongikat.com Wallpapers

1 23 2010 18 19 36 Best Places to Find High quality Desktop Wallpaper

Hongikat (much like this site, Smashing Magazine, and Abduzeedo) is not a dedicated wallpaper site; the site just links to some of the best, hand picked, wallpapers available online. The site doesn’t have a ton of wallpaper collections, but the site definitely focuses on quality and shares the wealth with you, the reader.

wallpapergarage.com

1 23 2010 18 18 30 Best Places to Find High quality Desktop Wallpaper

If you like cars, lots of cars, and high-resolution depictions of cars, wallpapergarage.com is your number one stop for wallpapers. I love these wallpapers, which are always high quality and cover almost any supercar, racing car, rally car etc. that you can think of.

randomwalls

1 23 2010 18 17 17 Best Places to Find High quality Desktop Wallpaper

randomwalls is a good wallpaper site that’s provided me with great wallpapers for my collection. The wallpapers seem a little more generic and less unique on this site, but it’s still a great place to find wallpaper.

WallPaperStop

1 23 2010 18 16 37 Best Places to Find High quality Desktop Wallpaper

Just like random walls, the wallpaper isn’t as unique on this site, but it’s still a great hub for desktop wallpaper searching.

Wallpapers-room

1 23 2010 18 11 12 Best Places to Find High quality Desktop Wallpaper

I’m a big fan of Wallpapers-room; the wallpapers are unique, high definition, and are available in all shapes and sizes. This is one of my favorite wallpaper sites out there due to its simplicity and quanity of content.

Abduzeedo Wallpapers

1 23 2010 18 10 23 Best Places to Find High quality Desktop Wallpaper

Just like ths site, Hongikat, and Smashing Magazine, Abduzeedo pulls together some of the best wallpapers online. What makes Abduzeedo unique is that it also shares “home-grown” wallpapers created by the site’s author, which are well worth looking in to. I’ve used their wallpapers on a number of ocassions and even link to them in the collections hosted on this site.

Smashing Magazine Wallpapers

1 23 2010 18 08 58 Best Places to Find High quality Desktop Wallpaper

Also like this site, Hongikat, and Abduzeedo, Smashing magazine puts together collections of the best wallpapers online and shares them with its readers. What’s unique about this site is it also has users create and share monthly calendar wallpapers (with and without the calendar overlay), which can add function to your desktop wallpaper if that’s your thing.

Smashing Magazine Wallpapers

deviantART Wallpapers

1 23 2010 18 06 34 Best Places to Find High quality Desktop Wallpaper

deviantART is, without doubt, hosts some of the most creative digital art in the world. The wallpaper section of this site holds no exception to that claim and, amongst the hundreds of not-so-good wallpapers provides some of the most uniqute, exclusive, and high resolution wallpapers available online.

InteraceLIFT

1 23 2010 18 05 41 Best Places to Find High quality Desktop Wallpaper

InterfaceLIFT hosts a huge database of wallpapers in all shapes and sizes. The wallpapers are generally more nature oriented and consist mainly of photographs than digital art. So if you’re into photo wallpapers, this may be your one and only stop on your journey to find them.

wallbase

1 30 2010 8 48 31 AM Best Places to Find High quality Desktop Wallpaper

wallbase is packed with all types of wallpaper and, if you’re a NSFW type of person, is probably the site for you. mintywhite is very, very SFW; however, this site does a good job of restricting the content, so it passes the mintywhite SFW test tastefully.

    Please note that some of the pics are not suitable for children, but, still, I couldn’t find any explicit pictures so it should be safe for 16+
