Even though this article might be a little opinionated but if you Google the keywords, “Best Desktop Background/Best Desktop Wallpapers”, aesthetic and nature-inspired pictures of bridges, long pathways, hills, scenes of sunset, outer space or the Galaxy and gradient (metallic) backgrounds with the Apple Inc logo, is what generally shows up. We can also see some really hilarious images portraying political satire and Star Wars references. A Jedi on your Personal Computer screen sounds perfect.
Also, we can see some of the up-and-coming Internet Memes, for example, Steve Harvey and Miss Universe, Drake and Hotline Bling, and “Be like Bill”. It is true that in the category of mostly preferred wallpapers, we can see the parody versions of the classic Windows’ backgrounds. For example, the Windows 7 Background (which is a blue background with a windows logo on it), with a crack on the screen. The kind of crack that may earn the Personal Computer owner some gasps and slaps.
The other thing that is commonly featured includes family photos or people setting up pictures of their parents, grandparents, and/or children as their desktop wallpapers. This is a very nice and emotional way to remind you to be grateful of having a family. The best wallpaper which you may tend to choose is usually pictures of things you find the best. For example, your own picture; which is great because it shows how self-confident you are, it may be a picture of your family, a significant other. It may be a picture of your group of friends which tells a lot about you.
We can also see pictures of personalities who are famous and have a largely growing fan base; celebrities, singers, boy bands, YouTubers and inspiring personalities. The best wallpaper varies from person to person, because people tend to idealize images of what makes them happy, or perhaps, images of things that are of emotional importance to them; things that instantly cheer them up or make them happy. We also see some movie posters and superheroes, namely BatMan and SuperMan. They basically set up pictures of things that they would want to see over and over again, in this case, whenever they see their desktop.
But generally, there is one thing all these wallpapers have in common; they range from the color schemes of light blue to light gray hues. They are mostly having some sort of scintillation and vivacity to their aura. All of them happen to bring back some memories of our own and are somewhat pleasing to the eye or stimulate a mini adrenaline rush. As we like to call it, ‘Gives us the feels’. The best wallpapers are mostly taken from Tumblr. We also see an increasingly high number of pictures and fan art from YouTuber, Troye Sivan’s new album, “Blue Neighborhood”, being used as a desktop background by a lot of people. It is rated the best.
Best of the wallpapers according to different people around the world are much diversified but these wallpapers do have some eccentric similarities, like shades of crystallized blue, things that strike an emotional connection, and reminders of the past. The best wallpaper might differ from person to person. You never know what YOUR best wallpaper might be.
