Impressive Dual Screen Wallpapers

It becomes more common these days to use two monitors at once to increase productivity. Several of my friends already have two monitors set up as dual monitors so that they can work with two screens at the same time effectively doubling their workspace. This makes perfect sense for users who do need a lot of information on the screen at once.

I know some Poker players for instance who use two monitors to play eight games at once. It is actually pretty hard to find wallpapers for dual monitor setups. Sure, you could merge two wallpapers and use them as the background but it is also possible to use dual screen wallpapers from the site that I just found.

All wallpapers on the site are available in 2560 x 1024 and 3200 x 1200 format. If you run a resolution of 1280 x 1024 you should of course download wallpapers with the size of 2560 x 1024 and users with a resolution of 1600 x 1200 should download the 3200 x 1600 wallpapers.

You can download many wallpapers from popular games such as World of Warcraft or Splinter Cell but also a good amount of nature wallpapers.

Update: The wallpaper website is no longer available, and we have removed the link pointing to the site as a consequence. We do have some alternatives for dual monitor users. (Update 2: back up again)

This site features hundreds of images that have been optimized for dual screen monitor. The wallpapers are listed in categories like celebrities, abstract, anime or science fiction. The majority of wallpapers are offered in a 2560x1024 resolution, with some being offered in even larger resolutions like 3840x1200.

All backgrounds can be downloaded directly without registration or account creation.

Another site that you may find interesting is this one. It features both standard and dual screen wallpaper resolutions. When it comes to dual monitor wallpapers, it features resolutions up to 5120x1600 which can all be downloaded without registration as well.

Just select a resolution or device from the right sidebar and browse the wallpapers sorted into that category. It is possible to preview all pictures or download them directly from the site. It offers a large collection of wallpapers for download.

    If you use the ’tile’ option in windows and the image is the correct size then it will stretch accross both monitors.

    There is actually a fantastic program that will do this called UltraMon – it is used to place a 2nd windows tool bar on your other secondary monitor(s), and also has a wallpaper manager that allows you to select a different wallpaper for each monitor, or span one over both monitors.

    Hope that helps.

    Nice one Ford-it worked. I’ve wanted to crack that problem for ages

    In order to get it to span both monitors. I used Firefox and right clicked on the image and used the built in Firefox “Set as Background Image” feature.

    When the dialouge comes up select the “tile” position and the wallpaper spans both screens.

    This method, is a bit of a pain but it works. I also have an ATI X300 card maybe its a limitation but this method gets around it.

    How do you get each monitor to display a different wallpaper? I have an ATI card – is this not supported or is there a tool I can use?
