a community for desktop wallpapers
This community is specifically for sharing desktop wallpapers. Please tag your posts with as much information as you can, I've started using resolution tags as well as tags pertaining to the wallpaper's content. Mobile wallpapers such as iPhone and other customization items like desktop icons are also allowed.

1600x1200 - This is the native resolution for many 20" LCD monitors.
1280x1024 - An unusual aspect ratio of 5:4 (1.25:1) instead of the more common 4:3 (1.33:1), which means that 4:3 pictures and video will appear letterboxed on the narrower 5:4 screens. This is generally the physical aspect ratio & native resolution of standard 17" and 19" LCD monitors.
