Group Info

If you love digital wallpapers and customization, this is the right place for you!
Our focus is on abstract and 3D-wallpapers; however, this doesn't mean that masterpieces from other (Customization) categories are not welcome ;)

Everything more or less related to wallpapers and customization (brushes, tutorials, icons, themes,...) is also very welcome :)

Hopefully, this will become...

:bulletblue:... a large collection of great abstract wallpapers in many different resolutions made by many different artists from all over the world
:bulletblue:... a place where artists help each other to improve and promote each other's deviations
:bulletblue:... a collection of tutorials and resources
:bulletblue:... a source of inspiration
:bulletblue:... a community where wallpaper artists that share common interests can become friends regardless of origin, religion, etc.

So if you're a fan of abstract wallpapers, we would like to welcome you in this group!

As submicron said, I'd google. However a lot are sort of 1920x1080, 2560x??, 1366x768 seems to be on the rise. It really varies a lot though I'm afraid. And that's without even including phones, tablets, etc.

Thanks, I googled and it looks like you are right. According to one site 1366x768 seems to be leaving the others behind at 31% followed by 1920x1080 at 13%.

To be honest, if you're looking at making a wallpaper (I assume that's why you asked) just make as big a widescreen resolution as monitors go for. As long as it's the same/similar ratio for other montiors you should be good!
