Optimised Wallpaper for your Desktop!
Desktop wallpaper is meant to increase the functionality of the Desktop. And not meant to be artistic or distracting.
I have found that the only wallpapers that generally match such criteria are the wallpapers that come bundled with Sony VAIO laptops. As well as the abstract wallpapers bundled with Windows 7 RC1.
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.
