Random & Unusually Sized Wallpapers
« on: July 15, 2011, 03:45:39 am »
Have a wallpaper from when pixel numbers didn't matter so much?  Still rockin' Windows 95?  Maybe you're wallpaper pixel counts are odd?  Or perhaps you're just looking for a larger wallpaper of one you already have?    Don't be shy, post em here.

I'll start off with a classic! (800x600)



I'll add more when I get around to sorting through all my files.

I make a point of trying to improve myself each day so I'll be better prepared to take on the next.  It feels good!

I'll humor your wallpaper with this then: (1920x1080)



Also, just because your wallpaper is smaller than 1920 pixels in width, that doesn't really mean "undersized". If it was "undersized", that would mean that almost all computers have a 1920 resolution as a standard, which I don't think is the case... I hope that made sense lol.

You're absolutely right.  I changed the thread title to also include odd sized wallpapers.  For example, this one is 1024x768.

Personally I think the thread name should just be "uncommon sizes".

1280x720
1280x1024
1440x900
1600x1200

These are all common sizes too.

Older sizes like 800x600 or 1024x768 and unusual these days but you still get them. You'll also find a lot of people with unusual sizes. Like my Windows install uses 1824x1028. Things like that. No matter what they are, I wouln't call them "undersized".

You're right as well.  This was only the second topic started under 'Wallpapers', so I wasn't sure what should be put in here; I just wanted to contribute something.  Now that this part of the forum is starting to take shake, an 'Uncommon Sized' thread makes sense.

Is 1280x800 an uncommon size? I actually have tons of that size that I saved from my old computer which had that resolution.
