Cool desktop backgrounds: everyone's got 'em, but where do they come from? In other words, I want to know where you get the eye candy you keep underneath all those icons. (Not saying a word about what's inside, but you can probably guess...)
Every once in a blue moon, I stumble across one of those ephemereal sites which are well designed and have at least a few dozen kickass background images, often in multiple resolutions. Problem is, A) I don't always bookmark them, and more importantly B) you simply cannot Google for such sites. Any search term which would lead you to places like Digital Blasphemy
or Cognitive Distortion
--"wallpapers" or "desktop backgrounds"--is going to turn up hundreds of those crappy, ad-filled sites for every one gem, if any.
A related and minor gripe is how many of the places I have found, like the above, want you to pay for the content (although that's often because they have content they make themselves, which is understandable). I'd prefer places which are free or which offer public-domain type stuff.
So, where do you get your backgrounds from? The only other place I can think of is DeviantArt
, but they aren't the be-all and end-all of desktop fashion!
