    I don't mean to rain on anyone's parade, but I recognize many of those images from other sites. I guarantee you that at least some of them have restrictions on how they can be distributed. I've got a pretty big wallpaper collection myself that I have available via a PHP web gallery, but it's password protected and I don't pass the link around for those reasons. I'm sure the artists and photographers of some of these images prefer their stuff to be distributed from certain places so they can track its popularity. You just might want to check into that before freely passing them out.

    He's right. If I saw one of my pictures on this site, I'd be pissed off. I wouldn't mind sharing, if I was asked permission first, but this is more than what I consider fair.

    The last one (Homer grabbing the Apple logo) reminds me of the background that they were using for MacWorld (Homer silhouette dancing with a doughnut). I've looked around for that image, but the only ones I can find are photos people took of it from the audience (which means that its off kilter, off-color, and has people in front of it). I don't suppose Apple or Fox has it on their sites anywhere? If not, it'd be cool if they'd release it because that would make an awesome background.

    theres nothing wrong with posting collections of photos. yours or not. hes not selling them and he doesnt have ads where he is making a profit.

    the most anyone could do is ask him not to post it. and even then, they cant make you take them down.

    this is no different then someone cutting photos out of magazines and posting a collage in the dorm hallway.

    thats the nature of the internet. once you post something people are going to grab it. especially when its posted as WALLPAPER

    People grab images of my stuff all the time and it turns out to be my best publicity :)

    I agree. The OP said it is a collection of "your" (our) wallpapers. I like this better because finding a link to a wallpaper in the March Desktop thread is sometimes a PITA.

    Someone made the searching for a cool wallpaper much easier and again I say "Thanks."

    True, I forgot to mention that he is not passing any of the work off as his own (as far as I can tell :eek: )

    Although posting a credit and or a link to the original is a respectful thing to do ;)

    As far as I know the Internet is not law.

    And the most that the creators are asking is that its material is not used for profit and commercial. Only for personal use.

    Yup.

    Got anymore? Maybe you should start a "Can I please post your desktop here?" thread.

    As long as they have clearly stated such a thing, it's okay, but you should always give the author name. If you don't... well, it's not promoting the author's work anymore, so you should state the name, and, if possible, some email/web address.

    Wrong. He doesn't hold the copyright, nor does he hold the rights to distribution.

    Wrong again. They can contact the host and have them forcibly removed.

    Wrong again! There's a difference between posting a single copy of something on a wall and passing out copies to possibly hundreds of other people.

    That obviously makes it OK, right?

    I hope you don't mind.. I borrowed one and modified it slightly...

    I don't know why, but I like black bars along the top/bottom - it helps make the dock look cleaner. I do that with all of my wallpapers.

    I also made one other tiny change - I made the window to the shack blue - just a dash of color next to the happy little tree. :)

    While I realize nobody is trying to claim these as their works, I also agree that proper credits to the artists should be stated at the very least. I recognized a lot of the wallpapers from DeviantART, and other similar sites. The nature of creating wallpapers and publishing them online is almost always with the intention of people using them for personal use, but most ask that they not be redistributed without permission. I think it's a fair trade for a free wallpaper, and I'm sure most would give permission if asked. You obviously spent time seeking out the ones you prefer, so maybe spend a few more hours emailing them for permission, and then you can make sharing your collection legit and not worry about people like me pointing these things out. ;)

    If you're strapped for time and want assistance, I'm happy to help identify artists and locate their contact information.
