Free winter wallpapers for PC desktop backgrounds can be found at Wallpaper Stop and Free Wallpapers. For best results, the wallpaper needs to match the desktop computer's screen resolution. Common resolution sizes are 1,024x768 pixels and 800x600 pixels.
Hundreds of websites offer free winter desktop wallpapers. Some offer animated wallpapers. Searching with keywords such as "snowflake" or "snowman" result in specific wallpapers of that subject. Most wallpapers can be used for PC and Mac computers as well as iPads. If the desktop computer runs on the Windows 7 operating system, it can be set up to rotate several wallpapers like a slideshow.
Some artists submit their photographs to wallpaper websites for free use because this provides them with an online gallery and exposes them to a wide audience. Some wallpaper websites, such as Wallpaper Web, only have enough rights of an image to distribute it to computer screens. Anyone who is interested in purchasing the image would contact the artist directly.
Computer users can also use their own photographs as a desktop wallpaper. Once they take pictures on their digital cameras, they save the pictures to their desktops. Then they select the image they want, right-click on it with their mice, and select the "set as desktop background" option from the menu.
