I really like the photo, but 1024x768??? I was running at that res ten years ago. Wallpapers nowadays should be at least 1600x1200, but even bigger than that would be good future-proofing--and there are those with really large screens who need it now, too. Remember, the software can always scale it down as needed.

I AM running 1024x768 even today. And if there is a category for other resolutions it is okay to post smaller pics than the one you desired, isn't it :)

Computers with smaller displays can resize the images themselves. Why lock out people who have larger screens? Just upload the largest size you can, and everyone else's computer can automatically size down as needed. That way everyone can use them.

How comes you literally seem to know that there is a larger version?! There may be only this one. I have loads of pics in this resolution myself because you have to shrink them when you played around with gimp. I understand what you mean, though, but downscaled larger pics really sucks. They look fuzzy to me. I prefer the "right" resolution :)

Well, unless the original photographer took the pic at 1024x768, there is a larger version. :) I don't know what you mean about having to scale it down for use in the GIMP; GIMP works great with large images. And fuzziness isn't a problem if you use the highest-quality resizing algorithm, usually "cubic."

When you play around with hue, sharpness, contrast and so on, you have to scale down the image to get rid of the side effects your extensive work has caused. So: you're right there may be a larger version of this image, but the artist may have scaled the image to this resolution to "hide" the "pixelfailures" which occured during work. Nearly all fotographies really look nasty (fuzzy) if they're scaled down by X /your desktop shell, i think and see. But you're right again: if one does post pics "from scratch" and without work in gimp there wouldn't be any losses in quality (but this is not the thing i am talking about). :)
