I have a 32" 4K monitor and I am looking for the highest quality at least 8K and up pics to use as wallpaper to get them to show up with the finest details. I am finding that most wallaper is 4K, very little is in 8K, so that's why I am asking here.

the areas of interesting include nature - forest, taiga, ocean, anything nature-related.

If, to display 8k image on 4k monitor, the PC has to 'throw away' half the pixels, why bother with 8k as source file?!

I found out that an 8K image looks better than a 4K image even if it's on a 4K monitor.

Welcome to POTN

Just to get right to the point, are you interested in purchasing an image or are you interested in having a forum member gift you a high resolution photo for "wallpaper"?

You can always use your own images.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Sounds like someone is fishing for high resolution images.

I don't often share but I did like how this one turned out. It's simply titled "White Wall in Wales". I have higher resolution samples available on request.

Lovely detail, you have a Scottish version please? Not so keen on White walls in Wales, fellow Celts, but different :oops:

From my Adobe dwelling collection, simply titled "Ode to a chair rail". Exquisite in it's modern simplistic charm and detail. It pains me to say I do not have a higher resolution offering of this piece.

May I offer my own modest contribution to the selection of fine artwork already suggested?

It is an original, titled "GRAIN". When unveiled for the first time at the Moosebone Institute For Primitive Abstract Art in Saskatchewan, one local art critic called it "A remarkably deep and complex expression of modern thought at the highest levels". Others were also moved by it, some even suggesting that small copies be made available to the masses in roll form suitable for installing in small rooms.

If this satisfies your needs, datum9, contributions to the RSPB (Royal Society for the Prevention of Birds) are always welcome.

It's very tranquil in it's presentation, I can see why others were moved. I'm not afraid to admit I wept openly for 56 minutes prior to having a painful tooth extracted. Well done.
