This is where I get my wallpaper for Windows 10 and Mobile devices
Where do I get all my wallpaper images from that I use on my devices? For once, I'm glad you asked!
One side effect in posting many photos or screenshots of the devices I am either using or reviewing is the inevitable flood of 'Where can I get that wallpaper?' questions. And I get it. You see someone else's phone or PC, and you like the look of it. The problem is, I am but one person with limited time and linking to each and every image is probably not a good use of my day.
Today, I'll share with you the app I use for the majority of my wallpapers. they say help those to help themselves!
Wallpaper Studio 10
The app I use on my phone and PC is Wallpaper Studio 10 and George reviewed it back in January. You should read the full review, but here are the reasons why I like this app and why it has a 4.6 (out of 5) rating on the Store:
- Solid selection of images and image categories, which is always important
- Optionally pay $1.49 to remove ads, no fuss and I like supporting devs and our community
- Lock screen and desktop slideshow support
- 4K category for high-resolution images
- Ability to directly set wallpaper and lock screen
- It's universal! Works on phone, PC, tablet and even has Band support
I am not sure what else to say about Wallpaper Studio 10. It's a well done, clean and easy to navigate app that has daily updates to the wallpaper selection. The 'Logo' category is where you can find plenty of 'Widows 10' wallpapers too that you have seen me use in the past. With the app, I can sync across to all my devices or just to one, favorite or just download directly to my OneDrive Wallpaper folder for safe keeping.
So, the next time you want to ask about my wallpaper or you see someone else asking in comments just point them to that app as there is a good chance that was the source.
At least for me, Wallpaper Studio 10 is the best of the wallpaper apps out there now. However, if you have one that you think is better or that I should try out let me know in comments!
Bonus: Another good and reputable source for very creative images is DeviantArt. On that site, you can search for terms like Microsoft or Windows 10 or whatever and come up with some unique hits too.
Bonus 2: There is an unofficial, Windows 10 UWP beta app for DeviantArt on the Store. I have not tried it, but it may be worth a shot. You can hit this link to grab it.
Bonus 3: The subreddit /r/wallpaper us also a great resource that I like to check out.
Bonus 4: How could I not mention our own forums? We have a few threads like the legendary Share your W10M Start Screens and Backgrounds! which is 49 pages deep with 1200 posts! There is also post your desktop computer wallpaper and more. Just search for 'wallpaper' and you will get plenty of hits and new ideas too.
