    Yeap, someone totally needs to put a link here how to stretch wallpapers across two monitors … I feel so amateur.

    Great selection though. Would be cool to have some more snow related ones. I like really ambient backgrounds because I grafitti my desktops in shortcut icons, so snowy mountains, clouds and oceans make great backgrounds for me ;)

      Just put what you want as the background (has to be big enough) then put the background on “tile” setting:)
