Whatsapp Pinterest

backgroundHeadI have noticed a huge trend in my office after looking through the web browsing logs. A hell of a lot of people are on the look for High Resolution Wallpapers for their desktops. Some of the users searched for “high res wallpapers” and others for “very high resolution backgrounds”. In February last year, Tina listed the “The Best Resources to Pimp Your Wallpaper The Best Resources to Pimp Your Wallpaper The Best Resources to Pimp Your Wallpaper Read More ” with some great resources as well. Either way, I compiled this list of the best of the best websites for high res wallpapers.

There is something for everyone and we would love to see what you are using as a desktop background on your machine. So, upload those pics to your favorite picture sharing site and link us in the comments! Without further ado, here is my list.


My favorite site by far, for the longest time is DeviantArt. They have a wide range of wallpapers available to you. All the individual images I have picked have links directly under them to their download pages, so enjoy!

The DeviantArt website is easy to navigate and does not require registration to download!





My second favorite  site is which is mostly free (they have some paid wallpapers) but the ones I checked out were all free!


From here, you can choose your resolution and then download the image. They have every resolution you can think of. They even have options for your mobile!
