It's Friday ... time to change the wallpaper.

Need a new desktop wallpaper? Here's a gorgeous collection from Germany. Bridges, clouds, refineries, spiders, architecture, wildlife ... many of them with truly excellent color. My favorite. (And this one's begging for a drop-shadowed caption.)

Pixelgirl Presents has the best looking and best designed wallpapers.

Purty. Anybody know of some subtlely animated backdrops such as these ? (e.g., grazing antelope, clouds in motion, birds in flight, etc.) I have a 10'+ projector screen on one wall, and it'd be fun to go all Total Recall digital landscape on it.

Yeah, wicked slow. The little bit I saw before I finally gave up looked good, though.

Those pixelgirl backgrounds kick ass.

Hey, it's back online. Now, single file people, and no pushing.

For those with big ass screens, InterfaceLift is another good source.

All my best wallpapers are either from VladStudio, or from google image searches for words like "atrium".

You do mean Impact font with a contrasting stroke color, right?
