74 free desktop wallpapers

A few days back, I got some nice encouragement from my mom. Moms are perennial cheerleaders by their very nature, but this particular compliment on my photos got me thinking that I should collect my best desktop oriented shots and make them easily available to download. They're already freely available through flickr under the creative commons attribution-shareAlike license, but I wanted to assemble my personal favorites.

Download the wallpapers as a self-extracting zip file.

Just run the file in the directory where you want the photos. The package is also available as a straight zip file

I highly recommend "John's Background Switcher" which allows you to select specific photos to rotate on your background and even lets you specify a flickr user, tag, or set.

Here's a preview of what the photo package contains:

  1. Love the high five pic 🙂 Also love the macro work. I dont’ think I told you, I just bought a Canon S3 IS, which has super-macro mode with a min focal distance of 0 CM… that’s right, zero centimeters. it can focus on things touching the lens. It’s awesome 🙂

  2. LOVE the artwork! I’m a huge photography fan, but unfortuanately have no idea how to do it…and I’m just working away in the healthcare field, seemingly too busy to get involved! someday…

    Anyhoo…thanks for visiting my “turtle parade” and leaving comments. This is a first for me. I, again, have no idea what I’m doing. Just my attempt to stir up conversation about mundane, daily stuff. I hope it’s alright to use pictures (your bagel, for instance). I have to say that I just assume I’m allowed to do that…just did an image search on google?????

    Thanks again (and most definitely for the comment that you like my writing style…you have no idea what that means to a girl who’s never been a great writer, whose best friend is amazing at it..)

    visit often, I welcome your comments!!!

  3. Hi, some of those are really great. This puppy is as cute as it gets, is it real dog? Penguins are not real but the picture is nice anyway.
    All the flowers are beautiful but the purple ribbon is something. Never knew such flower exists.
    Well, anyway puppy is my favorite.

  4. I have seen here an excellent work. I like a lot to take pictures with my digital camera and I have a large collections of images that can be used like wallpapers. You can download for free from http://www.mybackgrounds.tk
    It is an old PC so it could be sometime slow.
