Wallpapers are an inherent part of the desktop environment. They are also referred to as desktop wallpapers, banners, etc. They come in a wide variety of different formats, usually from very high-quality ones like JPEGs and Paint Stores to the lower resolution ones like PNGs. In this article, we will see how to use wallpaper to improve the desktop environment of your Windows based computer. We will also take a brief look at some of the settings that you can change to tweak the display of your wallpapers and make them even better.
Wallpapers in general have two main purposes: aesthetics and performance. The kind of wallpaper you use depends on the purpose of the wallpaper. If you want to use wallpapers for aesthetics, you will probably go for the highest resolution possible, such as the ones used by professional photographers. These kinds of wallpapers have excellent colors and quality. On the other hand, if what you need is a good performance from your computer, then you should use the low resolution wallpapers.
The next time you install a new desktop icon, you might see a default wallpaper in its place. This is only normal; the default wallpapers are there so that your system can “get to know” the wallpaper you are using. In the same way, if you want to customize your desktop wallpaper, you can do this too. As a matter of fact, you can change the resolution, color, and format of the wallpapers very easily.
As a matter of fact, the only thing that you need to change when customizing your wallpapers is the resolution. All the others can be changed with CSS. Higher resolution wallpapers will have better colors, while lower resolution ones will have a black border. Usually, borderless wallpapers will be a better compromise between the two resolutions.
It is very easy to change the background of your desktop or laptop monitor as well. All you have to do is select from the many images in your local library and pick out your choice. Of course, remember that wallpapers are not all equal. Some wallpapers are designed specifically for phones or netbooks, while others are meant for desktops. The trick is to find the wallpapers that look good on your system.
If you are looking for free wallpapers, the best place to go is the Internet. The Internet is loaded with free images and wallpapers. All you have to do is search for the images you prefer. Another option would be to visit the websites of photographers and download their wallpapers directly. However, some photographers offer free wallpapers but then require you to provide them with your measurements to get the full details.
The quality of most free wallpapers is usually pretty good. In fact, some of the wallpapers look as good as the professionally designed ones. In case you are using a free desktop background, the biggest advantage is the fact that you can use the same image for other places, such as your email client or your cell phone.
If you are a professional designer, you can sell your designed wallpapers and use them as desktop backgrounds. You might also want to sell them as they are extremely high-end and can serve as an excellent promotional item for your business. In either case, free wallpapers can be useful tools to help promote your business. A desktop background that looks good and is also free of charge will definitely attract more viewers to view your website or your product.
Another advantage that free wallpapers have over professionally designed ones is that free wallpapers are more versatile. You can use almost any image for your free wallpaper. Even photographs can be used to make a free wallpaper. It all depends on what you like. Some people may prefer nature photography, while others may prefer to take pictures of their pets.
One of the disadvantages of free wallpapers is that they can take up a lot of memory space. All images are stored in the computer's hard drive. Thus, if you intend to use several pictures to decorate your desktop with wallpapers, you should make sure that each image is properly saved before using them. Otherwise, the computer will take up too much space. Even the slowest computers cannot accommodate too many images at once unless they are copied and stored in the hard disk.
Finally, do not confuse a wallpaper with desktop background since they are two different concepts. A wallpaper is the picture that is used as the desktop background while a desktop background is the paint-like image that is painted on your desktop background. A desktop background is usually the default image that is installed in your Windows operating system while the wallpaper is a picture that you choose to add to the desktop. With a free wallpapers, you can choose to change the desktop wallpaper whenever you want but a wallpaper can only be changed on a selected screen.
