Desktop Pictures: the quality source

Sometimes Google can be dim. Search on "desktop pictures" and you get a lot of sites that, at least to me, aren't very useful.

On the other hand, the old "About this Particular Macintosh" site maintains a Desktop Picture archive that's free and excellent. A bit of a hidden gem I guess.

Personally I prefer gray scale images because color images make it hard to find my desktop icons, but I'll try switching some of these to gray scale. The one exception is that in XP at work I use Microsoft's desktop manager, and in that setting I reserve one environment for desktop operations. The other two can have full color backgrounds, and I rely on the backgrounds to tell me what environment I'm in. I'll be using these ...

I've been using DeskLickr, which on a defined schedule pulls images off flickr and makes them desktop images. Frees me from obsessing about the 'right' image.
