Wallpaper of the Week: Green Forest Reflection 9 months 1 week ago rhiannon

Yep some more than others. :)
I try to choose ones that most people might like.
Some I like, others not so much.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Wallpaper of the Week: Half Moon Floating in Space 4 years 7 months ago crosseyedlemon

Celestial themed images always seem to work well as wallpapers. I think the scientifically inclined would probably use the term 'gibbous' rather than half moon however.

view
Wallpaper of the Week: Half Moon Floating in Space 4 years 7 months ago rhiannon Gibbous is a lovely word. I agree, scientifically inclined people likely would use the term gibbous. :-) Personally, since Gizmo's Freeware has a substantive worldwide audience whose first language probably isn't English, I use the clearest and most common terminology to depict the substance of the post so it can be readily understood by as many of our readers as possible. view

Based on information that Alexa analytics provides it appears that only site visitors in India would have a first language other than English and they only represent about 12% of the those that visit this site.

Wallpaper of the Week: Holiday Wallpaper Roundup 3 years 9 months ago Catsup22

Nice collection. Wallpaper Abyss has superior quality above the other sites. HOWEVER, be advised it includes several inappropriate scenes, including the "F" word in at least one of them!

view
Wallpaper of the Week: Holiday Wallpaper Roundup 3 years 9 months ago rhiannon

Yep, that's why I mentioned that I came across a wallpaper that contained an expletive in the description of Wallpaper Abyss. I didn't run into any NSFW (not safe for work) scenes but I viewed the first 20+ pages or so of images and saw the one with the expletive (which seems to part of waaaaay too many people's sentences these days for my preferences) in it, thus the warning. :)

Wallpaper of the Week: Lava Flowing Into the Ocean 7 months 1 week ago Fairportfan

I wouldn't say the shutter speed was all THAT slow - look at the waves.

From the general appearance of the image, i'd say that's in Hawaii, and the lava there tends to be quite smooth and fluid.

Lava flows there form tubes, as the outer surface of the tube cools and the interior keeps flowing, leaving a hollow tube.

view
Wallpaper of the Week: Lava Flowing Into the Ocean 7 months 1 week ago rhiannon

I didn't know there were different kinds of lava in different parts of the world, that's really interesting.

It could be the shutter speed wasn't all that slow, and no way to know if that's an original image that hasn't been altered. The waves are clear, so... ¯\(º_o)/¯

Wallpaper of the Week: Lightning Over The Grand Canyon 4 years 5 months ago MidnightCowboy

Bhodi Linux has quite a loyal following. At inception it used the E17 (Enlightenment) desktop but later releases of this introduced a lot of instability so the Bhodi developers decided to fork the last stable version of Enlightenment and so created the Moksha desktop used now. This is very different to your usual Gnome, Mate, KDE, Xfce etc., which makes it quite appealing. M.C - Site Manager.

Thank you, rhiannon! But... tell me: is it a paint, right?

view
Wallpaper of the Week: Milky Way Rising Over Snowcapped Mountains 4 years 7 months ago rhiannon I'm not sure...........it looks like it could be a real photo to me, but I'm no expert, that's for sure. It could be a photo that's been enhanced with Photoshop, it could be something created in Photoshop or a similar program......I've also seen some amazing night time photos that are as good as that and haven't been re-touched. I think only the person who created it knows for sure. A local photographer (who recently moved, sadly) takes shots of the Milky Way around here that are absolutely breathtaking. Clear, dark skies and long exposure times are what work for him. :) view

I appreciate nature and landscape photography as much as the next person but maybe it's time to explore other wallpaper categories. That particular website offers some very nice city nightscapes for example. Still can't figure out why they think it's necessary to provide screen resolutions to 13 decimal places though.

Great to see the list of wallpapers!
Would it be possible to see the wallpapers with small icon photos in a GRID format. That would make things easier to find.

I need to change my desktop, cover photos etc. for some sites periodically so this is good. Do you have dimensions of some of the more commonly used sites photos are updated ie. Facebook, Youtube, Google+, etc.. They are not listed on the site and would be nice to have noted in your articles etc.
Thanks.

Thanks for your comment. I don't believe there's a way to list the images in a grid or by thumbnails though I can check on that.

Thanks for the suggestion, I did a quick search and found this page - you can find essential sizes for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube and Tumblr (up to date as of Sept. 2015) here:
