    Where is your favorite place to find cool desktop backgrounds?

    I would like to find some decent sourcs for desktop backgrounds where: (a) you dont have to pay, and (b) you dont have to download any stupid program to get the backgrounds with like webshots, or cool wallpaper.

    So far the best method I have found for searching for backgrounds, is searching for 1600 or 1280 at google image search, or in a PtoP program.

    I don't particularly have a favorite place for getting backgrounds. I just wander all over and if I see something interesting, I download it.

    If you don't mind working with themes (usually several backgrounds included in these), then you might try www.themeworld.com since a lot of the themes are just zipped and you can extract the backgrounds independently of the rest of the stuff. Or just use the whole theme and get the cool effects to go along with it. :)

    Well, you only have to pay for the 1600x1200 versions.

    desktopgirls.com (when their servers are ever online that is, they have a persistant popup too)

    Freshmeat.net have some pretty cool 'papers. It really depends on what you like to have as your background really.
