    If possible can you put thumbs in your RSS feed, kinda aggravating trying to scroll thru feeds while images are loading and popping feed reader back to your feed.
    Just my little whine for today.

    Wow, along with the other collection of wallpapers now I have a different one for each day of this month…. And maybe even for the next.

    wow these are impressive, I especially like the ones in the “abstract” categorie. There’s even a tutorial on the “Travel” wallpaper. The first “fantasy landscape” design is great too. Well they all are. I just don’t understand why you’ve included the “Mac OS Blue” in the list. I’ve seen a lot better Apple orientated wallpaper than that one. It’s too simple to compete with all the others in my opinion.

    I second mark’s request. Is there a way for you to have your RSS auto scale down the thumbs. my feedreader hates this posts as much as I love them :)

    Great collection!

    But who the hell said, that Apple is green? Apple pollutes the environment with their production methods. Don’t ever say that Apple is green!

    Great new wallpapers for my desktop!

    The 3rd wallpaper “Summer wallpaper” needs a little fix. Looking at the kanji that the website uses it seems to be a Chinese website. You could also check by clicking the English button on the top left.

    As freewally said in the comment they don’t have the original author credited so it might better to have the link to the original author.

    I hope you guys take a little more time to check. Keep up the good work!

    Not that I don’t love all these wallpapers (even more so now I’ve upgraded to a 22″ widescreen), but I want to see Smashing Magazine mix up the articles a little more. Give us some more unique articles, not follow ups (note the “really”).

    Still,

    Hello. Good collection!

    But the article needs a little correction. Adhemas Batista not is the autor of Abduzeedo wallpaper. The true autor is Fabio Sasso, inspired in Adhemas Batista’s work :)

    Pleiades is a star cluster, named (if I remember correctly) after seven sisters, possibly daughters of the Greek god Zeus. You can find out more about them on Wikipedia.
