If you have a high resolution monitor, it's possible to update the wallpaper without distorting the image. In this article we explain where you can find photos in 4K or Ultra HD, and then we look at how to configure them to fit your desktop.
There is a world beyond predefined landscape images or blurry family photos. There is a broad variety of high definition images that will fit your computer, or external monitor, perfectly. Series and movie scenes are some of the most popular wallpapers.
At the end of the day, the photo that covers the desktop of the computer, also known as wallpaper, is one of the images you see every day. Why not spend a few minutes customising it? Just be sure not skimp on quality.
As we mentioned before, there are a range of web portals to download HD wallpapers. Here we present our Top 3:
Wall Paper Up
Wall Paper Up is a really nice site with impressive photos. Its minimalist design offers a welcome reprieve from the bombardment of advertisements, unlike other download portals.
Its specialty is HD and 4K wallpapers. You can filter the search by keywords, in the upper-right bar. There is also a wide choice of filters by themes accessible from the All Categories tab, where options such as comics, series, architecture, humor, sunsets, or places around the world are displayed.
Best-Wallpaper is one of the best wallpaper sites. It's very intuitive to use and has almost thirty classifications by subject. This makes it easy to find interesting images!
In addition, this page allows users to rate images so that it is possible to filter the search to obtain the best qualified wallpapers.
WallHaven is one of the platforms with the greatest variety of images and photos to download in wallpaper format. It stands out among its competitors because it offers quality files up to 5K.
To start browsing through its infinite number of proposals, click on the Latest buttons to see the latest images uploaded, or Random to access the database. Once inside, you have the possibility of searching for a wallpaper by typing a keyword in the Search bar or filtering content by theme, resolution, and more.
Although each web portal has a different design, almost all work under the same principles. That's why we suggest three general steps to download a new HD wallpaper.
From the computer desktop, click with the right mouse button. In the menu that is displayed, select Set wallpaper, for PC, or Change wallpaper for Mac. A window will open where you can see the current image that covers the desktop as well as the option to modify it.
At this time you can upload the newly downloaded high-resolution wallpaper and also configure the appearance settings. Once this last step is completed, the computer will display a crisp, new wallpaper.
