I'm really fond of wallpapers and always on the lookout for great sites that offer many of them. I do rotate them every 15 minutes on my Windows desktop which looks and feels great. Whenever I come upon a new wallpaper site that offers quality wallpapers without - too much - ads I post it here on Ghacks because I know that many of my readers also love wallpapers.
The following site offers more than 8000 high quality wallpapers, the only bad thing about it is that it only displays eight of them per page.
The site that hosts all of these wallpapers is called wincustomize, surely known by some of you. There are two ways of downloading wallpapers from the site. The first option is to simply click on the wallpaper you are interested in, and then again on its profile page to display it in a lower resolution right on the screen. This is more of a preview though and only suitable if you want to download wallpapers for use on low resolution screens.
If you click on the download button instead the full image is either shown on the screen or offered as a download instead. Downloads were previously capped on the site but it does not seem to be the case anymore.
I did not register an account on site but it seems that you get a higher cap, or even non at all if you do so. Registration is free for the first level. I suggest you try it out if you want to download more.
Update: The site is now hosting almost 20000 wallpaper images which makes it a medium sized wallpaper repository. You can still download wallpapers to your system as a guest. Wallpapers can be sorted by popularity, date of submission or featured, and a list of popular wallpapers is also listed on the right sidebar.
Filters are available here as well to change the number of wallpapers per page or how wallpapers should be listed on the page.
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it. The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.
We are committed to keeping our content free and independent, which means no paywalls, no sponsored posts, no annoying ad formats or subscription fees.
