Simple Desktop Wallpaper
« on: February 15, 2010, 09:50 PM »
I admit that, like many of us, I go on a wallpaper-gawking spree once a month or so.
This month it wasn't the latest digital swirls-and-clouds eyeball saccharine that caught my attention...
No, this month it was something... simpler.

Do you often find yourself spending time looking for something that isn't a beautiful photograph but also isn't a gradient and drop shadowed mess with a little lens flare and some annoying copyright information in the corner?

Do you want less, but not boring? Then you want Simple Desktops.

Simple Desktops: a collection of bling, drop shadow, and gradient free desktops to help keep you stay focused but also provide just enough eye candy to not be bored.

And if that's a little too minimalist, check these out from Microsoft Technical Evangelist, Mike Swanson.

I've been asked many times if there is central location for my wallpaper images. So, instead of posting them in individual blog entries, I've assembled the collection here. Each is available at 1920 x 1200 (16:10 aspect ratio, "widescreen") and 1600 x 1200 (4:3 aspect ratio, "standard"). Some of them are also available at 2560 x 1600 (which is also a 16:10 aspect ratio).
