Package with 40 Wallpapers - Free to all ...

#1 Post by linwinux » Sat Apr 28, 2018 4:23 am

I've had this package for 12+ years ... royalty free images ... free to whomever wants them.

That link points to my own server, so it's safe to use. That server will change within the next 4 to 5 weeks, so there'll be some brief downtime at that point. I'm keeping the file there indefinitely though ... ;)

Thanks for the pictures - though I must say I would only use 1 (possibly) on my desktop/laptop.

There's a reason for those particular 40 pictures. I actually have hundreds more but as already mentioned, I do everything that I can in order to provide others with the awesome experience that Linux has to offer. There are nature lovers, sci-fi & fantasy lovers, art lovers, and so on. I provide this package so there's something there for everyone. People can either pick and choose single wallpapers out of that list ... or select just a few for a personal archive ... or allow all of them to change on a daily 24 hour basis, as I used to do with Mint. It's all about giving literally anyone, regardless of age or computer skill level, something to make their desktop truly special. With only 40 screens, I'm sure there are probably even people out there who don't like any of them ... so just *ONE* image is still a win, from my point of view. :happy:

No, I'm sorry, but I have absolutely no idea where I got that image from anymore. Wish I could help ... :frown:

I did a reverse image search on a few of them. The city on the water is probably Curaçao.
