Huge High Resolution Wallpaper Website

Mydeskcity is a huge, and I mean really huge, high quality wallpaper website that is not overloaded with advertisement like many other wallpaper repositories out there. The only drawback that I could find is that this website is not in English but Chinese, at least I think it is Chinese. Navigating it is easy nevertheless: The thumbnails on the main page depict the theme of the category, clicking on one of the numbers above the thumbnails lead to the corresponding page of the category.

The wallpaper website has 15 categories that contain up to 300 pages all with 20 wallpapers each. As you can see a huge collection of wallpapers. Minimum size of most wallpapers is 1280*1024, most have a higher resolution like 1600*1200. Let me know if you find a great one that you want to share, post the link in here.

If you do not understand Chinese, I suggest you use a translation service like Bing Translator to translate the website into a language that you do understand. Once you do you will realize the several things have changed. The website for instance detects the screen resolution of the connected monitor automatically and displays it on the site. When you now select a wallpaper image you will automatically be presented with the right image resolution that comes closed to the detected screen resolution.

The site has increased its wallpaper collection throughout the years. You now find additional category listings on the site, as well as thousands over thousand of wallpapers. The website is not as easy to navigate as Interface Lift or Desktop Nexus which both offer a cleaner design. This can both be attributed to the language the site is provided in, and the complex navigational structure that it is making use of.

Update: The original website is no longer available. I highly suggest you check out the two sites listed in the last paragraph instead as they provide you with a great selection of wallpapers that you can download for free to your system.

    Yes, it is Chinese. To be more specific, it is “simplified” chinese. It’s what they use in mainland China.
