For better or for worse, we spend a significant time of our day staring at a screen whether it is the screen of our laptop or our smartphone. Most of the time we are usually busy doing something productive (or fun) and don’t stare too much at our desktop wallpapers. But that doesn’t mean that we can simply neglect that. In fact, whenever we need to take a short break we usually just sit there and stare at it for a few minutes. That is reason enough that the wallpaper needs be something that is good to look at. In addition to this, if you give a lot of presentations then you need to pick something that you can display to a lot of people without any hesitations. While it may sound simple enough, getting the right wallpaper can be quite tough.
So whether you want to pick a wallpaper that’s just good to look at or you want to pick something that shows your artistic sense, you can do so by following one of the ways that we have mentioned below. They are quite easy and will give you a ton of options which you can choose to select the wallpaper that’s just right for you.
Google is your friend
The easiest way to get the wallpaper that you are looking for is to simply do a Google Search and then go to the images section. Thanks to the search prowess of Google, you will be presented with literally thousands of images from which you can choose the one that you like. And that’s not all: Google Image Search advanced features allow you to search for just the right resolution that will fit your screen perfectly. You can also find similar images to the one that you are looking for. Bottom line: it is quite a powerful tool if you use it in the right way.
Communities on social networks
If you are an enthusiast photographer then it is a good idea that you follow communities on social networks like Facebook, Instagram and Google+ etc. These communities are a great way of getting awesome new wallpapers and the categories are literally limitless. Not only that, you can also share your wallpapers with those who are just like you and get valuable input on those images from other community members. So, it’s a win-win situation for everyone involved in such community.
Try a wallpaper app
This one is a little more focused on smartphones. In both Google Play and Apple’s App Store, you can find apps that have thousands of wallpapers that you can set as your wallpaper. Not only that, some apps also have the functionality to change your wallpaper automatically on daily basis or after a said period of time. This is especially useful if you get tired of looking at a picture after just a couple of days. Apps like these will keep the look of your smartphone fresh without you having to spend a lot of time looking for the right wallpaper.
Use your own photos
One of the best and never ending source of new and extraordinary wallpapers is your own photos. You can use the photos that you have snapped or you can even use your family photos. If you pursue photography as a hobby then this will also give you a chance to display your skills all the while giving you an incentive to snap more photos. So just grab your camera and head down to a spot that you really like so that you can make it your next desktop wallpaper.
