The Desktop Wallpaper Thread

In this thread, you may share a wallpaper to used for desktops or as much as you want you would like to recommend to others, post a link to a wallpaper site. I recommend hosting your images elsewhere and posting the link to the image in this thread. That’s how I do it.


I’ll start. The following are all the wallpapers I’ve made in Chronological Order [These were made using video game screenshots, ReShade, Photoshop, and Lightroom in some cases. Some of the games are heavily modded. Some are just straight from the game] so far:

From when I started and had no idea to what I was doing:

Attempting to use Lightzone rather poorly in retrospec:

A Novice really trying to be good. This is where I tried to create statement pieces that people would use maybe as desktop wallpaper and go beyond just a screenshot:

I hacked my monitors to go beyond their set res, I don’t ever recommend anyone attempt doing this:

Sometimes I do stuff just for me like a wallpaper of my Ship in Star Trek Online The USS Crecy G

Hacking Monitors again. Seriously never do this.

Not Hacked Monitor

Hacked Monitor

This is where I started using Lightroom:

I stopped tricking my monitors into a high resolution


I’ll post more of my wallpapers later. I do plan to make more wallpapers very soon but first I want to get the ones I’ve done provide a link to them on this thread.

The rest of wallpapers I’ve made so far:


The future wallpapers I’ll be making will be at 3440x1440.

Damn dude, that’s a hell of a lot of wallpapers. This is some good shit.

Thanks. I’m lot better than when I first started.
It partly happened cause I wanted something I could use for my desktop. The problem with the ones I found at the time is the quality was poor or they didn’t have the resolution I want. So I went about making them. These are about 4 years worth of making wallpaper.

My inspiration for starting was Dead End Thrills:

http://deadendthrills.com/

It showed me you could make art out of video game screenshots. It is another type of photography though virtual in way.

Yeah, all that imgur compression on /r/wallpapers really killed it for me.

Those Mass Effect ones are really tickling my fancy :smiley:

Oh, BTW, Mass Effect is a pain in the ass with ultrawide monitors, so be ready to spend a while trying to figure it out. (maybe you and I could collab on an explainer thread if you want)

I’m not surprised by this. There are a few games that don’t support 21:9 3440x1440. As for Mass Effect, I’ve officially retired form replaying it and the series. I recently finished my 15th replay of the series. It is a shame how hard and fast Bioware fell.

For my next set of wallpapers I’m going to go with PREY 2017. I’m going to mod it to remove the HUD with this:

There is also Control which comes out in August which I plan to make wallpapers with but I like to play through a game first before I make wallpapers with it. I could do some for Quantum Break.

Damn. I’m not quite there yet.

Yeah, 2 was clearly the peak. There were good moments in 3, but the ending fell very flat.

We don’t even talk about Andromeda.
