WC Community Question: What Wallpaper Resolutions Do You Use?

Friday, July 24, 2020 by Island Dog | Discussion: Personal Computing

Computer monitors have become much bigger and the prices have become quite more reasonable than they used to. I picked up a nice 34" widescreen for just a couple of hundred bucks. It's not 4K, but HD has been working quite well for me. I do have a 4K touchscreen laptop, and that is certainly nice to have when working with images and video.

But the question today is what size wallpaper resolution do you typically look to download? Do you even look to see what resolutions are available?

3440x1440 here, too. 1 Monitor LG Ultrawide.

Is this a combined res, alphabyte?  Or a single monitor? 

Single monitor, ultrawide screen. Was skeptical at first whether or not this format would work for me, but really love the extra space for multiple windows.

I have one of those, I don't even know the res....lol.

EDIT: 2160 x 1440.

Just a quick tally so far.

1920x1080 - 5

1920x1200 - 4

2560x1440 - 7


3440 x 1440 - 3

3840 x 2160 - 2

I guess to answer your question sizes, I do look at resolutions available. when ya jump up to 2560, a 1920 wallpaper will be fuzzy. So yes i look.

But still the same ratio.   I use 2560x1440 and I really don't see a major diff when running a 1920 wall.

Follow-up question:

When you download a wallpaper do you prefer multiple resolutions, or just the biggest possible and fit the wallpaper from that?

I definitely prefer multiple resolutions. One of the reasons is that sometimes I like the possibility to crop the larger size for using only portions of the original.

I prefer multiple resolutions.

I prefer to download a single resolution.  What I really like is to be able to download the "Original" image resolution and work from there.

Reply #33 Saturday, August 8, 2020 1:42 PM

I prefer multiple resolutions so i can pick which to display.

Reply #34 Saturday, August 8, 2020 3:07 PM

I prefer the “original” or largest possible resolution with no upsampling. Then I can crop as needed for my screen resolution.

Multiple Res's probably best for our site .

some people might not want to take the time or 

even know how to resize them properly.

If the site had an AUTO resizer built in the original size would be OK

and be a smaller file size .
