400+ free, beautiful, high-resolution wallpapers

I’ve always struggled to pick wallpapers. It’s difficult, time consuming and a search for “wallpaper” on the internet inevitably returns hundreds of hideous ones.

I use a service called Splashbox to synchronize images from Unsplash for free as they’re added. Unfortunately, Splashbox is invite only at the moment so people can’t get in very easily.

The beauty of Unsplash, is the images are 100% free and can be redistributed. I do not own these photos, but they are public domain and there isn’t an easy way to get all of them.

People are always asking me where I get my beautiful wallpapers. Now you know. There are the occasional odd ones in here, but it’s worth it to have nice pictures all the time.

So, I present to you 400 free, high-resolution images for your wallpaper on your Mac/PC/Tablet/Whatever. I’ll update this post every 100 new photos or so.

Download the ZIP (now with fixed URL)

Just a word of warning, it’s 1.6 GB. There’s also a risk my file server will be crushed, so ping me at @ow if it’s broken and I’ll fix it.
