I discovered a wonderful selection of wallpapers on Del.icio.us today which I'd like to write about as I think that you will find the selection handy as well.
The wallpapers on Iunewind are colorful and simply different from most wallpapers that I have seen on typical wallpaper websites. The website currently hosts about 60 wallpapers which are most of the time available in different resolutions and sizes. 60 may not sound like much but sometimes less is better, as it enables you to concentrate on each image instead of hectically browsing thousands of wallpapers in hope to find one that is suitable for your desktop.
A click on a wallpaper thumbnail loads a larger preview image of the wallpaper with options to download the wallpaper in resolutions that are listed below the preview image. Wallpapers sometimes are also offered in poster format, and there is an option to buy a print of it to support the artist. While we are at it, you can also donate if you like on the images.
Comments can be left for all wallpapers and it is possible to purchase posters of some as well. Some wallpapers are suitable for specific occasions like Valentine's Day for instance. Would be a nice little gesture if you set the wallpaper on your friend's computer on that day, would not it?
The website seems to ache a little bit currently, it almost reached it's limits so be sure to head there quickly and download the wallpapers that you like (or wait for the rush to be over before you head over).
Update: The website is fast and responsive. The wallpaper count does not seem to have been increased by much throughout the years though, as you find only a couple of new images listed in the portfolio on the site. Still, it is definitely a welcome change from the usual wallpaper repositories that you find on the Internet.
