So not that we're all getting our shiny new 27 inch iMacs I thought it would be a good time to make a wallpaper thread with wallpapers that make the iMac shine :D

The idea is to post wallpapers not shots of you desktop, so that people can actually use the wallpaper. Also, please only wallpapers that are appropriately sized.

I'll start out with one ;) Also... if anyone happens to have the Star Trek wallpaper from the Apple site that'd be much appreciated :)

i was also looking for it

but couldn't find it

so it came to my mind that it is very likely a screen capture from the latest Star Trek movie

we clearly see Ex Astris Scientia

which is the orbital station building starfleet spaceship above Earth

Just FYI, you can go to Interfacelift.com to get hundreds of 2560x1600 wallpapers.
Ok, it's not in 2560x1440 but still good.

for years now i've been throwing images in a folder called Desktop Pics and my wallpaper changes every minute. there's now just over 6500 files in there
currently my biggest screen is 1920x1200 so many of the files are in that proportion - but as i'm thinking of getting a 27" imac next month, i'm going through the whole lot and making them work at 2560x1440 (by resizing or putting borders or merging several together).
it's taking frikken ages and doesn't work for all of them. but i'll come back and post the ones that seem to work well.

Search by resolution (2560x1440 is there) and search with tags. There is a worksafe option too. /thread Enjoy! :)

It makes me sad that it is so difficult to find such high res wallpaper. I'm not really a fan of interfacelift. I don't like 'scene-y' wallpapers. I prefer sci-fi ones and movie/game/tv ones.

I'm all about IFL. Honestly, though, I'll take anything but the usual girls & cars garbage.

Jeez! Some nice wallpapers... here's what I usually do:

- Go to Google images.
- On the left panel, use the "Exactly..." option where I can input my screen resolution.
- Hit the search. :D

The best part is we can refine the wallpapers by selecting different colors. :D

First attempt to use Flickr. All are 2560*1920.

Link specifically to the hi-res images: http://www.flickr.com/photos/60317939@N07/collections/72157626517644792/

Haven't figured out how to do thumbnails.

Added more Hi-Rez photos.

Please let me know if you can download them. Getting the licensing settings right on flickr is something new for me. Also, if anyone knows how I can link thumbnails I'd be grateful to hear from you.

I've been a long-time fan of a Blog called The Fox Is Black (a.k.a. Kitsune Noir) - an Art & Design Blog and the guy who runs it does "The Desktop Wallpaper Project", a weekly update with lots and lots of wallpaper from some really amazing artists/collaborators. All abstract/vector/screen printing styles, and very Apple-friendly resolutions including 2560x1440, iPhone & iPad versions.

Really is awesome if you're into that kind of thing - http://thefoxisblack.com/

In order to get the time or weather on your screen, geektools is the place to be. I don't know how to do it myself, I'm not much of a geek ;)

I do have 1.111 desktop pictures, I might upload some of them. All from interfacelift, great website.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1481386/Desktop%20Pictures.zip

It might take a little while before it's online.

EDIT: The file is ~250 mb

Love that site! Found it a couple of weeks back when I got my new iMac. There are some CG ones hiding amongst the real photos, so if you dislike those like me you do have to fish around a bit.

Just added 3 wallpapers, made from photographs I have taken on a recent expedition to Mera Peak (6400m) in Nepal. Hope you like them, no watermarks, 2560x1440 and free to distribute. Here is the link - http://www.flickr.com/photos/himanshudeshpande/sets/72157628565091609/

I have probably around 1000 Hi-Res backgrounds of pretty much everything under the sun... These 2 are some of my favorite.

If you would like to see my collection let me know and I will upload them to flickr
