    I've been trying to look around, but still not a lot of luck! Since this new iMac is 5K resolution, I am having no luck finding any 5K wallpapers (A Christmas themed wallpaper, because I am soo festive :rolleyes:). Anyway, if you have had any luck finding a 5K gallery, I would appreciate it very much.

    Also, another question! Let's say I don't like any of the 5K wallpapers I find. Would a 4K wallpaper (which are much more common than 5K) look good on a 5K display? Anyone who has tried scaling a 1080p and a 1440p would have an idea how it would look, right?

    5k Photos

    I own a Nikon D800E (a "7k" DSLR :)) and a bunch of high-quality lenses. Here are some of my images if anyone wants to use (use the download button for full resolution). Needless to say - all rights reserved, use for personal use only:

    I would not mind having this one at all. Not in the slightest. Even a tiny bit.

    Glad you enjoy them :).

    I have you tell you, this particular image:

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/60469738@N00/8303893673/in/set-72157632328564228

    Blew me away when viewing it on the 5k iMac at the Apple store. I know this image VERY well, and it was like watching someone else's image.

    Kind of blows me away, in the area of digital audio and visual capture, we now have devices that far, far exceed human perception. And with corresponding improvements in technology, being able to handle, store, transfer and view the data.... I just purchased a massive (like 20GB+) virtual instrument library set and the sounds of the "virtual orchestra". Unbelievable.

    Singularity is soon, for better or worse. Scary. :eek:

    Yeah - that medium format image is mind blowing. Look at the detail captured in the skin. You can see the individual hairs on the girls skin. Just amazing.

    I'm wonder when(if) they will be able to implement something like this in a video camera for movies. Imagine directors being able to shoot 50 MP images at 24 FPS. Really open up digital IMAX

    for the 27" retina iMac, not too sure which ones to download?
    I notice each photo you can click on for widescreen, one resolution or another, and then by machine, whether it be a retina mbp but i don't see any for the iMac retina.

    Any ideas which one we would click on to be suitable for this screen?


    TIA

    www.wallpaperup.com =click 4th icon on top(monitor figure) = click on "more" at 1st group of pictures(Full HD) = you'll see the resolution numbers if you put the curser on each picture and click that picture if you see the 5k resolution = Now you have bigger picture. Just bottom of that picture, you'll see all different resolution numbers. Click on the number you like to download. It will down load to your computer automatically.

    5k resolution is 5120x2880. Higher than this number is 5k or better picture. I have downloaded 200 of 5k or higher and 450 4k pictures so far. Hope you like this.
