Many wallpaper websites can be classified as rather spam-driven sites. They have too many ads, some use popups and other means of making a quick buck. Good wallpaper sites are therefor rare and deserve to be mentioned in an article.
The over 1000 abstract wallpapers on a single page website offers what its page title suggests: a good way to view and download some or even all of the wallpapers offered on that page.
Width and height of the pictures vary between 1280*1024 and 1600*1200, there is however no way to find out about the original image size without clicking on the thumbnail which loads the full sized image.
The page takes some time to load if you are using a low speed connection. All thumbnails on that single page are about 2K which means that you will have to download about 2 megabytes before all thumbnails are displayed.
Update: The wallpaper site has been taken off the Internet. The domain returns a 404 not found error when you open it in a web browser. While I can't offer a site that is displaying all wallpapers that it hosts on a single page, you may find the following hd wallpaper sites listing useful which links to eleven wallpaper repositories that hosts thousands of background images that you can download freely to your PC.
Among the sites are very popular destinations such as Flickr, which is a photo hosting site with wallpaper groups that you can look at, Deviant Art which is more or a less an art community where wallpaper images are posted regularly, or Interfacelift, another great repository.
Most of these wallpaper sites display ten or twenty wallpapers per page. While that may be disheartening at first, they make up for it with sorting options so that you can dive right into a category that you are interested in.Advertisement
