    i think just about everyone has seen edesignuk's Angelina Jolie thread with the massive pics, and that lead me to thinking about other websites with heaps of wallpapers and stuff.

    here's a few of my favourites:

    www.xmwallpapers.com - heaps of stuff. Anime, Games, Movies... Girls. :D this site was also mentioned by someone here on MR, so i guess some credit should go to them for pointing me to it.

    www.maxempire.com - Max's Empire. lots of sweet pics, girls mostly. :D

    www.mandolux.com - Mandolux. lots of interesting pics, and also very good shots of airforce planes, F-14, etc. I think there's even a wallpaper of an X-2, or one of those concept planes. He's also got massive walls for dual screen setups. very nice.

    well that's all of best wallpaper site i can think of for now.

    and if anyone else knows of some good wallpaper sites, please share with the rest of us. :)

    I recommend http://www.plasmadesign.co.uk

    they have a lot of great wallpapers, the guy is a mac user ;) makes dual monitor wallpapers, and makes wallpaper just for the TiBook screen, the cinema displays, and the 17" iMac.

    What more could you want?

    It only costs 5 dollars and you get access to all of this guys awesome work.

    Pm if you need "help" with it.

    sweet.

    i forgot to mention that Mandloux also makes wallpapers at 1152x864, but that's the res of the older TiBooks. i love sites that make the res especially for the mac.

    and thanks RobVanDam, i'll have to check out those sites later when i get some time. :D

    1152 x 864 is a 4:3 ratio that really only exists on CRT monitors, to my knowledge. the older TiBooks had resolutions of 1152 x 768. is that what you meant?

    [edit]having checked the site, you're a bit off--none of those is the TiBook resolution, ever. they do have plenty of 1440 x 900 and 1920 x 1200, which is nice. but yeah. that is a great site.[/edit]
    i could want it to be free. there's lots of incredible stuff on the web, absolutely free. i can't justify spending 5$ on that stuff. it's fairly common stuff.

    yeah, that's what i meant. oh well he doesn't do specific resolution walls for Macs....:(

    the Art of Greg Martin looks good, nice & big 1600x1200 walls, that's what i like to see! :D

    PlazmaDesign does look like it's got some good walls as well. maybe i would pay $5 if i had a cinema display or something. you don't see too many 1920x1200 wallpapers out there.

    i just had a look at desktopgirls.com. some very good stuff in there, but it all looks like it's smaller res. but they also have some walls from other sites, so by having a look there you can find your way to other good sites.

    www.geckoartist.com - some very nice photoshopped stuff, they're not quite photos, but sort of an 'ultra-real' style.

    http://www.pointx.at/ - looks like they've got a heaps of a selection, but i think most, if not all of them are only 1024x768.

    http://www.e-wallpapers.de - big range of walls, sport, cinema etc. they have a range of sizes from 1024x768 upto 1600x1200.

    i'm having a hard time finding good quality walls, like 1600x1200. there are some out there, but i sure haven't found them yet, so if anyone can help with that... :D

    i've also stumbled accross some more, um... 'adult' themed sites. i thought i'd better not post any of that stuff, considering different people that might be viewing the threads. :p

    more links to come later! :D

    One of my favourite sites for free wallpapers is www.digitalblasphemy.com. They have a bunch of free stuff, for those who don't wish to pay out, all at 1600x1200 (although you can select a lower resolution if you prefer).

    Lately I've been getting my desktops from www.breedart.org, but they aren't a desktop site, so you have to search for ones which are of decent size to make a desktop. I found a bunch that fit the size requirements, and a couple that made really tight desktops - here is an example :):

    (my desktop for July)

    My current desktop is also from breedart and can be found in the Sept. Desktop thread.

    I went to mandolux and was a bit confused with the layout of everything.

    He doesnt make wallpaper to display across dual monitors....he displays wallpaper for the left and wallpaper for the right, but usually there is a 3200x1200 or whatnot combination wallpaper to strecth across 2 screens.

    How do i download something from mandolux, to display across 2 monitors.

    This is for windows....

    What about MacDesktops I've used them for years, and they have some awesome desktops.

    desktopia looks good. :)

    here's an interesting site: danyboy.com. there's only 8 wallpapers here that i could find, but they're all good, available in sizes up to 1280x1024. i thought the site intro was good as well. :D

    http://www.gameswallpapers.com/ - looks like an OK selection of game wallpapers. i used to go to gamewallpapers.com, but now you've got to pay $10 to get any of the good walls. :mad:

    http://www.abstractanime.com/ - anime wallpapers. they've only got about 10, but they're all available in resolution up to 1600x1200.:)

    http://desktopanime.tripod.com/ - some more anime walls.

    http://clearlypixelated.com/ - looks like a good site. abstract walls, as well as anime.

    enjoy, i'll keep looking. :D

    Hmmmm....I love Max's World/Empire (also has the url maxworld.co.yu). He's had a great update to the wallpapers section since I last visited ;) :D

    hey, i just found another site, kinda like Max's. ;) the same in just about everyway, except it's for all the D.I.Y. wallpaper makers. :D

    http://babes.flabber.nl kinda funny to have those sorts of pics at a URL like 'flabber.nl' :D

    and another one: http://topgirls.nm.ru/. they've got some *particularly* good walls, but i don't know if you can get the full res pics, they all look like 800x600. and i can't read russian, so that doesn't help any.:p
