Mentioned in the blue and the green before now, but never, as far as I can tell, featured on the front page.

I really love the multi-desktop wallpapers. I don't remember seeing that idea before. Grabbed a bunch.

Is the donate link working for anyone else? I'd like to give the guy a few bucks.

I really like the design here - small enough to be fast, but not thumbnail tiny, and links to the different sizes. Thanks!

Excellent site... lots of extremely high quality stuff in there.

THe pictures are great, I downloaded a pair myself. But isn't it odd that some of the pictures are only available as split screen wallpapers?

This is my new wallpaper, taken from this three monitor one.

Great work. Especially for baseball fans.

I blame hitler.

Bugger. Well, I chose the left-hand one, if it isn't obvious.

OK, this made me laugh. Glad I had the patience to skip the baseball papers, two more teams and I might not have.

Nice idea, etc. But dark grey lettering on a (slightly) darker grey background? Tsk, tsk.

Does anyone know if there is a way to get a different image on each monitor in XP?

Smiley : check out Ultramon.

You can just combine the two images in your image editor of choice making sure to set your canvas size to your combined resolution and then set the display control panel to tile.

These are great. Thanks for the link nthdegx!

Looks like his Flickr stream has a lot, if not all of the panoramas as single images, if that's easier for multi-monitor display. They're the large size, though - 5124x1604 for two screens.

The only thing I don't like about these is that they're forcing me to go out and buy a second monitor.

Nice, thank you. I just grabbed a bunch of these.

The hypodermic needle titled Barry Bonds elicited a groan, but a used condom titled Bill O'Reilly made my day.

Mando has been around for a long time. I had not visited his site in years prior to seeing this link. It's refreshing to go back through his site and see how much he has continuously improved over the years. As always, he's got some excellent imagery.

Send Mando some postage stamps, he loves 'em.

Great images. Too many great images. I'll be changing my desktop every week.

sysinfo, lol! I was thinking the same thing.

He has a donate link... if you like them well enough to buy a whole new monitor to display them, be sure to throw the guy a few bucks too. :)
