Are you big fans of Tumblr? Here at MakeUseOf, we certainly are. The blogging platform brings together the idea of blogging together with social networking and has become home to some of the most creative, entertaining, humorous and thoughtful posts we’ve ever come across. With an easy-to-use backend that lends itself to both creating new content and sharing content that you like, it is home to some of the most viral content on the Web.
The sheer amount of content on Tumblr, which makes it a joy to browse (as well as very easy to lose hours of your day in the blink of an eye), also makes you filter through a lot of repetitive content to get to the good stuff. For that reason, we’ve put together lists of recommended Tumblr blogs that we think you should be following. We’ve already introduced you to 8 Tumblr blogs every writer and book lover should follow, 7 news and political blogs you should follow, 10 humorous Tumblr blogs, 6 fascinating blogs for history buffs, and now we’re taking a stab at Tumblrs that feature stunning wallpaper images.
Not marketed as a wallpaper site, Unsplash features high resolution, copyright free photos, meaning you can use them for much more than just your desktop wallpaper. That said, the quality of the photos make them ideal for using them on your desktop computer. What’s even better is that the site is updated on a daily basis, with 10 new photos uploaded.
Wallpaper Philosophy lives up to its name. The Tumblr blog features a small collection of genius wallpapers that will make you think. Sadly, the blog hasn’t been updated in a while and we assume that’s how it’s going to stay. That said, the small collection that is there is definitely worth checking out, and we imagine you’ll want to use them all.
Prettify is not just a wallpaper site. It also features icon collections, but if you want to narrow down the blog posts to just the wallpaper collection, click here. You can further narrow down the posts by the types of wallpaper – with iPhone 5, iPad, and desktop wallpapers. The collection of wallpapers is varied – with design, photography and more, so no matter what your taste is, you’re bound to find something that appeals to you.
If you’re looking just for iPhone 5 wallpapers, the aptly named iPhone 5 Wallpapers is a great place to start. The site even has a great little tool where you can hover over a lock icon to see what the wallpaper would look like with the iPhone’s lock screen, as well as an icon to hover over to view the wallpaper with iPhone icons over it. The site has a varied collection of photos, vectors, and more.
iPhone Background has a fantastic collection of artistic and rustic images, designs and photos that will appeal to our artsy readers. There are also quite a few quirky photos that can also be used as iPhone wallpapers. If you’re looking for something with a vintage feel to it — this is the place to go.
Desktop Wallpaper Project is another great source of artsy wallpapers, but this time for your desktop. Another small but high quality collection of images, Desktop Wallpaper Project features some intelligent, creative and beautifully created art that will make your desktop prettier than ever.
Wallpaper Blog features a pretty impressive collection of wallpapers, the majority of which fall into the nature photography category. But that’s not all you’ll find on the Wallpaper Blog. You’ll also find celebrity images, original artwork, photo-manipulations, and much more. The Tumblr blog hasn’t been updated in a while, but the collection is big enough that we imagine it will keep you coming back for more.
One of our favourite features on A Solid Base is that you can choose the same wallpaper for your desktop, tablet or smartphone, allowing for a seamless wallpaper experience across your devices. The curated collections links back to wallpapers that can be used on various sized desktops, different smartphones, and different tablets.
