I’ve searched high and low to find the best wallpaper site for computers, tablets and phones – and A Solid Base clearly comes out on top.
The wallpapers on A Solid Base are each painstakingly curated by site owner Jim Whimpey.
When you visit the site, you’ll see each wallpaper as it would appear on a desktop display, iPad and iPhone. The presentation is practical AND gorgeous to look at. If you’re looking for a particular color in your wallpaper, use the “Colours” bar to filter your selections.
Each wallpapers is properly tagged, to encourage exploration. (Warning: It’s a time-killer. Be prepared.) Each entry also features a link to follow to download the wallpaper, and all works are properly credited so you can explore additional work by a particular artist who strikes your fancy.
As for the wallpapers themselves: they are serene, beautiful, and well composed. I’m incredibly picky when it comes to desktop wallpaper, and I couldn’t find a bad one in the bunch. If you’re highly selective when it comes to the images that grace your devices’ screens, give A Solid Base a chance. I think you’ll be pleased.
P.S. I have also found an excellent collection of portrait optimized desktop wallpapers for those of you who rock vertical displays.
