Wallpapers of the week: still life

By , Mar 16, 2014

wotw sill life splash

We are headed into another round of wallpapers for the Wallpapers of the Week section. The section continues to evolve with input from readers in the comment section, proving there is a changing lifestyle to the wallpapers posted on the site.

Like most weeks, I want to remind everyone, sharing wallpapers is a great way to help project the section and give your own input. I get emails every week with great wallpapers and some of them make the post! The images do not need to be original works of art, but crediting the artist, when known, is always preferred. Take a step past the fold to get your hands on these still life images…

Wallpapers

Still life captures the beauty of singular objects and even vast expansive landscapes. The genre is not necessarily nature focused, these images just happen to both be of nature scenes. In particular, the droplet image is a great micro shot of nature’s minutia.

Downloading

Grabbing these images is simple. Tap the corresponding device name and wait for the full resolution image. Once the full wallpaper is loaded, tap hold and save to the Camera Roll. From either the Photos.app or Settings.app, set the newly saved image as wallpaper. From a desktop, save the images to the iTunes sync folder.

Getting involved

Help curate the wallpaper section by submitting your favorite images! Please, only submit images that are formatted for iPhone or iPad. Simply sending over a picture you took on vacation does not qualify. Catch up with me on Twitter @jim_gresham or via email at jim@idownloadblog.com.

    You should make an app for wallpapers of the week, an easy way to search previous wallpapers categorized by device (i4, i5, ipad), maybe a section to submit new wallpapers and even vote for them, with links to the author’s galleries, etc etc

    • illK†Δ

      Check out “AR7″ on the App Store. He is someone who contributes to the wallpapers of the week frequently
