Great!  Glad you both like it:)

Since I'm posting a reply anyway, this was from today after the snow and ice here in the Ozarks.  Thought it was pretty neat. Unfortunately I was not thinking of backgrounds, but feel free to use it if you want.  My wife gives permission:)

I'll star focusing on the aspects for decent backgrounds and see what I can come up with over time.  I know I could go through my wife's photo's right now and find some amazing shots.  Maybe that's the deal. She has a good camera as well.

What is a good resolution for sharing decent shots if I find them?

Re: Wallpapers

^ Bigger the better, can always be scaled down, where as scaling up sucks.

This 4,096px × 3,072px is sweet.

8bit

edit: what there's a need for is backgrounds that span two monitors. Like 3840x1080...

these all suck, IMHO, most are too busy.

Excellent! and, I know exactly what you mean about the busy problem.  Basically, you should "want" to see the image when looking, but it should have zero distraction visually from taking care of business otherwise.  Not so easy really.

Okay, Who know what/if I come up with, but I'll try to make it worthwhile anyway:)

Re: Wallpapers

Trying to get an idea of what works:) We take loads of pictures. Do people want nature?

Starling-2048x1361.png Rainy-Day-4512x3000.png leaf-4608x3456.png

On the dual monitor image (SnowandIce), I'm posting this for the concept.  It may be a tad busy, but what I need to know is whether the resolution of the picture will work, (not the size),and if the idea of a landscape like this would be interesting to people? 

If so, I may have some others that are pretty neat already in a file somewhere.  If not, but the concept works, I'll take more pictures with all of the above in mind at a higher resolution:) Guess I will anyway.

Snowand-Ice-3840x1080.png

The other thing of interest is whether "full scale" nature scene backgrounds work at all?

Spirits-4608x3456.png

Don't think I touched up any of these, so they can all be made better no doubt.

Sure:)  What are you looking for exactly?

Separate the two, and it can look like two people holding hands as well. Let me know if you want the .png of the image, or are interested in more.
