    Hey guys, we just ordered our 17" iMac G5 for Christmas, and I'm looking for some cool wallpapers to put on it. The screen res, being a widescreen monitor, is 1440x900. Does anyone know where I can find wallpapers of this size? I've checked caedes.net, macdesktops.net, macdesktops.com, and a few other sites, but can't find anything. Where should I look for some? And for those of you you have one of the new iMacs (I know someone must...), how do you get your desktops?? Thanks! ;)

    I don't know what you like, but try googling "1440x900 wallpaper"...there aren't a lot of sites that specifically do that size, but there are pics here and there.... Good luck! :)

    Google, gotta love it....

    yeah, its really hard to find "Widescreen" wallpaper. best thing to do is to download the highest res wallpaper. I go to www.deviantart.com, and download the highest (or secondhighest) quality wallpaper, then depending on the image, I could either stretch it to fill, or just have it crop off the top and bottom.

    widescreen wallpapers

    Gee - a G5 for christmas. Lucky you.

    I use a mac G4 powerbook 17" and have got a lot of 1440 x 900 widescreen wallpaper from flashfast.com. I've even tried some of the 800 by 600 (big wave wallpaper) on page 1 (page 2 has new additions for widescreen) and it looks great - if there is high quality sometimes it will look okay on the desktop..

    They have an RSS feed for updates or new wallpapers.

    That's the site I was going to recommend. They have a lot of excellent backgrounds at native mac resolutions.

    Deviant Art has all sorts of stuff. This one (NSFW) looks nice on a 20" screen.

    but that one's only a 800x600 - how would it look good on a 20" screen? or is there some other secret link for full version?

    i do think that the wallpapers from Max's Empire would go nice on a big LCD like 20" or so. :cool:

    here's a wallpaper sites thread where i tried to just make a list of any good wallpaper sites. if you know some good sites, feel free to add them in as well. :D
