Even when I still ran Windows as my primary desktop OS, I always kept the desktop free of unnecessary icons to take advantage of what I felt was the best digital picture frame you can own- your computer’s monitor. Now that I’m a confirmed Apple afficionado I’ve grown even more fond of having high-quality art and photographs as the desktop background thanks to OSX‘s ability to use an entire folder of pictures, changing at whatever interval you choose.
While the included background image on the new iPad isn’t bad, it’s always nice to personalize your device a bit. Thanks to a recent post on OSX Daily we have access to a nice library of beautiful photographs shot at 2048×2048 resolution. The article credits @RetinaiPadWallsand endorses them as a great source of high resolution images. The images are absolutely stunning and can be set up in just a few taps. If you’re new to the iPad, just touch and hold on an image in Safari you’d like to save, then select “Save Image” from the list that appears when you lift your finger. The image will be saved to your photo library. Open your photo library, select the image you’ve saved, and hit the export icon (the box with an arrow coming out of it). Then choose from the options to set the image as your lock screen or wallpaper screen.
