The goal of this group is to have downloadable wallpapers for people to use. All art mediums and styles are welcome that balance with the type of art folders listed within the gallery.

There are a few basic requirements a wallpaper needs to meet. Please read below.

:bulletgreen: Images need to be of a wallpaper resolution or have an image ratio that allows for
scaling to a wallpaper size.

:bulletgreen: Images need to be downloadable at deviantART. No links to external sites are allowed.

:bulletgreen: No sales for FREE wallpapers is allowed. If you want so many points to download it, then it will not be accepted.

:bulletgreen: No watermarks!! The image is to be ready for a monitor wallpaper w/o a watermark.

:bulletgreen: Please try to choose the appropriate folder when submitting your work to the group.

:bulletgreen: Adult content and Pinups should be submitted to the "Adult Content Pinups" folder, regardless of what medium was used. Tasteful nudity is accepted, as determined by the admins of the group.

:bulletgreen: Current submission limit is 2 images per day.

:bulletgreen: If you submit images which are not of a well known wallpaper resolution, you risk
having your image(s)declined. It would be polite mentioning the wallpaper resolution or image size
ratio in your image description, as many wallpaper artists do. We don't want to spend our time trying to figure out if 5208 x 3255 pixels is a wallpaper dimension by using pocket calculators.

:bulletgreen: If you submit to the wrong folder you risk having your submission declined. So please
use the drop-down menu when submitting,

:bulletgreen: If your "Mature Content" image was declined, please keep in mind that this is an area
where tastes and opinions differ. If you feel it was unfair please contact Lynxander or
GypsyH via personal note and we will listen to what you have to say.

We hope you enjoy your visit to only-wallpapers. We will try to run a smooth image submission process, but we are only humans and accidents and mishaps can occur. If it does, don't get upset, come talk to us instead.

Dear Members,

I have made some minor changes to the gallery folders. Renamed the folder for Pinups and Mature rated images. Also renamed Fractals folder to "Fractals and Abstracts". Most Fractal art has an abstract nature so I think they go well together. There is perhaps a bit much going into the Miscellaneous folder with the current folder structure, so I'm trying to change that a bit.

We could perhaps add a few folders?
A few things that come to mind would be a folder called "Drawn and Painted" and perhaps one for "Desktop themes".

What do you think? Should we have some more folders?

Thank you very much for the request. I could consider re-working some of my images to suit a desktop backgroud usage before submitting them to the group.

I have decided to open up background / wallpaper commissions, is it okay if the journal advertising them is added to the group?…

Hello, I was browsing for a good wallpaper group to settle down in for my wallpapers and to see others in my inbox now and then (You have no idea how hard that actually was D: ) I was wondering is the join group option automatic or do you read the message to see who should join. Also what aspect of the group would you recommend joining if I plan to upload a fair bit now and then?
On another note I was reading the journals and noticed there was a 'Wallpaper Packs' folder once but cannot find that in your gallery now. As I have gotten back into wallpapers again and am doing packs now too I was wondering where these would go when I do join and upload ^-^
I look forward to a reply from an Admin soon, Have a lovely day :happybounce:

I'm hoping to make more and do requests / commissions regarding wallpapers / backgrounds. My view numbers have gone up since my art was put in the group!
Thank you so much to whoever submitted them <3
