Awesome! Thanks for the link!

Glad you enjoyed the site. I recently visted caedes.net for the first time and was impressed by the originality of many images in the categories provided. Today I added about a dozen desktop patterns to those I already had in my collection to choose from.

Back in the days when I was using Windows, I had Webshots, and for a long time used images that I snagged off that website, but then eventually started using photos I'd shot myself. When I got my Mac I continued with the tradition of using my own images, even though I've certainly seen some neat wallpapers that others have on their machines.

Was just gonna post that, and SexyDesktop.co.uk, which is also mentioned. SexyDesktop doesn't brand the desktop pics with a logo IIRC, like Skins.be does. But Skins.be has more in 1680*1050 for a 20" iMac so.. :) I have like 2 or 3 hundred images from those sites. :p

I can usually find something over at Mandolux (http://www.mandolux.com) to suit my mood. There are also some very nice images at David Lanham's (http://www.dlanham.com/) site.

You beat me to it, Mandolux is amazing. Moby.com has some pretty interesting photography you can use as well.

Probably the first site to nearly freeze safari + probably my computer.

Who the hell made that? It's extremely disorganized and it's awful.

I had an attorney contact me wanting $500 for using a webshots.com photo -Be careful-you could be next-- he wrote to me

"Webshots was never authorized to license my client's images and, in fact, my client has had prior infringement claims against them. Under the circumstances, my client is willing to resolve the matter by granting a retroactive license to you for a fee of $250 for each image, or a total of $500"

I would tell him to eff off and disable sharing on the website by disabling right click and making a copy right on each photo. if flikr can do it im sure they can too
