How to use digital wallpapers creatively

Using wallpaper images for desktops and other screens If you are looking for a wallpaper for your personal desktop or smartphone, feel free to use an image that celebrates your personal preferences. Are you a travel bug who is itching for your next adventure overseas? Perhaps a world map wallpaper complete with hot air balloons and airplanes is right for you. Do you love animals? Shutterstock’s library has millions of animal wallpapers, so you can have your pick of the litter. If walking through a fine art museum is your idea of a good time, then an artistic wallpaper may make you smile. Our library has everything from watercolor to 3D renderings, modern murals to pop art. For people who are longing for a breath of fresh air, a nature wallpaper may be the way to go. Jungles, mountains, meadows, and many more are available. Using wallpaper images for video conferencing Doing a video conference from home and want to hide a bit of the clutter in the room? Use a wallpaper (it’s far faster than cleaning!). When it comes to selecting a wallpaper for your video conference, it is best to use a pattern that is not overly busy, as this can be distracting to the members of your virtual meeting. Instead, try a wallpaper that is fairly uniform in color. A studio background in dark green or blue with a bit of texture can help you to remain the focus on your screen. Avoid wearing the same color as your wallpaper. If you want a backdrop that places you in an actual room, be sure to use an image that is fairly minimalistic in design. An office with a large window and little furniture can work well, as can a simple backdrop that includes a potted plant or two. Using wallpaper images and photos for website backgrounds When looking for a wallpaper for your website background, it is important to keep the tone of your brand in mind. You want to make sure the wallpaper and brand tone are aligned. If you have a trendy blog about women’s fashion that features a pink color palette, for example, then looking for a wallpaper with similar hues would be best. Try a shimmering pink and gold brushstroke background or seamless pattern of pink dots. You can also take a look at the complementary color wheel and go for a wallpaper that complements your color palette. In this case, light green would be the complement to pink, so a mint wallpaper might be just the thing to make your text pop.
