Title: Linux Lite 2.8 Wallpaper Suggestions
Post by: Jerry on January 09, 2016, 02:28:47 AM
We're on the hunt for new wallpapers for Linux Lite 2.8

If you're unsure of what type we are looking for, have a look in the current selection. They should be:

- High quality images
- jpg or png
- A minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080
- Virus scanned - https://www.virustotal.com/
- Have a generic wide appeal (no niche or bizarre stuff)

Thank you :)

Do you know if any of these exist as wallpapers on other operating systems?

Yeah.  Some Linux Lite, Elementary OS, LXLE, and Mint.  Some are images that are used in Google Chromecast screensavers.  A handful were found in the public domain outside of the aforementioned sources.

Thanks torreydale, it's a shame the dropbox images aren't categorized by OS and source, it would be quite embarrassing for example to have a Mint wallpaper in the next LL :)

The file name of the images are a giveaway of the source.  But to be safe, you can consider my second option.

I have a suggestion of places to start looking for public domain images that might be used.

http://libreshot.com/

http://www.photos-public-domain.com/

https://www.pexels.com/

These sites and more were found on:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Public_domain_image_resources

Hopefully this will help others to make suggestions of images.

I will be adding image suggestions here as I find them.
