Desktop wallpaper is meant to increase the functionality of the Desktop. And not meant to be artistic or distracting.
Wallpaper that is specifically designed and optimised for your Desktop interface will bear the following criteria:
- It will not be too detailed so as the distract from the desktop icons.
- It will not be too bright so as to make the Desktop icons less noticeable.
- Its design elements will be clustered towards the right, since Desktop icons are usually clustered towards the left.
- The background for the Desktop icons will be dark, so as to make the icons more easily noticeable.
Armed with these criteria, I have designed a 1024×768 wallpaper for my readers. Feel free to download and use it.
Update: Please also see wallpapers themed on Mughal Art here.
