    When you say copyrighted, what do you mean?

    I think I remember seeing one of these threads float around.

    I think this thread is supposed to be a for a collection of wallpapers. It would be kinda confusing if you tried to use one of those other images as a desktop background.

    I don't really know of many good wallpapers, but you'll find a staggering amount of cool high-res space images here http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/imagegallery/index.html and here http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/archivepix.html

    Might want to give some of them a polish in photoshop though.

    ☆ Share the awesomeness - Wallpapers ★

    At this page you can download a 18000x18000 image file of that.

    You can simply pick a section of it you like, and crop it into your desktops size.

    You gotta admit... That Orion nebula seems to have a pretty good idea of composition.

    (BTW, make sure you put it through "auto contrast" in photoshop)

    When I went to check it out, all the image files contained faults and they couldn't be opened. Neither in the browser or my image viewer.
    However, you can still download those images on this page.

    Thanks a lot for the link, by the way. Very interesting stuff
