    I just got a 19" Dell LCD model 1901FP and a new ATI graphics card to make it shine. I do however need to find some really cool high rez pictures to use as wallpaper as the ones that came with windows 2000 is not quite high enough and I'd rather not stretch the image as it distorts and looks bad. Does anyone know of any good sites where I can find some great quality images at high resolution (1280x1024) to make this thing look awesome. Maybe some captures from movies or some beautiful landscape shots would be cool.

    What do all of you use as a source for good high rez images for wallpaper?

    Thanks!

    I got almost exactly the same as you recently- 1901FP LCD and ATI 9600 pro.

    I make my own wallpapers because (as you've mentioned) high res images are hard to come by, and well I just like making my own better. You can see some of them here(shrunk down from 1280 by 1024):

    There are quite a few 1280 "official" ones at http://lordoftherings.net the rotk gandalf one is my favorite there.

    Rob M.G. Do you know what the current or correct Username/password for Art of Greg Martin is? I can't get the Wallpaper to work with his supplied set.

    You could try www.webshots.com They offer 1600x1200 images if you are an Unlimited subscriber.

    Juan - He lists the correct username and password to access the images in the wallpapers section of his site. I just tried it and it works for me.

    I know they cater to Mac users, but you can still use them on a PC-

    With my 22" HD Mac monitor, it's always hard to find 1920x1200 images. The Mac site above is just the place.
