DesktopNexus has hundreds of thousands of wallpapers that have been uploaded by members of their community, and the sheer amount of wallpapers puts this on my list of the best free wallpaper sites.

Finding Wallpapers Is a Snap

I am in love with the navigation at DesktopNexus. It's so easy to use, and the results are spot-on. For example, I can click on Animals and then I'm brought to a whole list of all kinds of animals that I can click on to see wallpapers of just that animal. The search results are flawless, and I get just what I'm looking for.

Besides browsing the categories, you can use the search box to type in a keyword, sort by popularity, or sort by wallpaper resolution. Now those are some options.

Quality of Wallpapers Can Be Hit or Miss

Since all the wallpapers at DesktopNexus are user uploaded this means that you get a wide range of wallpapers. You'll find stunning digital art and photographic images here, but you'll also come across odd wallpapers that look someone took a picture of something laying on their basement floor.

With that being said, most of the wallpapers at DesktopNexus are wonderful looking, and they have plenty of high-quality wallpapers to choose from.

Adding Wallpapers to Your Desktop Is Even Easier

The process of downloading wallpapers at DesktopNexus is just as good as their navigation.

Click on the wallpaper you'd like to download and then click Download Now. Desktop Nexus will automatically detect your computer monitor's resolution and size the wallpaper appropriately for you. You just add it as your background, and you're done. So easy!
