Favorite tiled wallpaper

I love a good tiled desktop wallpaper. I don't think it's too hard to find tiled wallpapers, but unfortunately, I think it is hard to find a good tiled wallpaper.

Here are the only two I have on my computer. I didn't make them. The first is my favorite.

(Found here)

Do you have any favorite tiled wallpaper images that you'd like to share?

Please note that I am not interested in tiled wallpaper websites, only tiled wallpaper images. Thank you.

Re: Favorite tiled wallpaper

My favorite.  I've been using it on every device I own for probably the past year.  It's the first wallpaper I've not compulsively switched after a week.

Can't remember where I got it.  I do believe it's technically tiles with some nice overall fading applied to the 1920x1080 I've linked.

Re: Favorite tiled wallpaper

I pretty much use only tiles these days...a throw back to my old Windows 3.1 days I guess.  Here's a handful of my collection (OK more than a handful): http://www.mediafire.com/?iyurcwdkgty7kjt 1.64 MB download

Mods: if it is inappropriate to post a link, feel free to remove it...

# edit: it's fine, but please don't use link shorteners to obscure the destination link - I've edited that bit...

You know what's weird? I loaded the small tiled version that jasonwryan linked to, and it still looks like it has that fading effect. yikes


@jasonwryan
@milomouse

Thank you, those are nice wallpapers. The swirls give it almost an "old west" style.

The version jasonwryan linked is also a wallpaper of size 1920x1020 with fading added, not the tile itself. I really like the wallpaper too, although I really like the pattern milomouse provided :-D

I've always liked static for tiling:

Re: Favorite tiled wallpaper

Here's what I've been using for a bit - bg.png

I forget where I grabbed it, google images most likely.

tile-177.gif and tile-133.gif both see heavy rotation, but there are a bunch in there that I like.

I croped this in Gimp. The pattern match but the colors do not match (my Gimp skils are very poor)

That is a nice tiled wallpaper. I'd only say "second place" though, since I personally would prefer colors other than black and gray. wink I think I'll play around with xsetroot and those numbers.

No, it hurts my (young) eyes too. Don't know how you could stand looking at that. Only thing that seems worse is the root weave pattern, used back in the day because it'd tell you if there were hardware issues with the monitor. Feels like daggers are being shoved in my eyes.

Re: Favorite tiled wallpaper

Here is an addition to this old thread that inspired me to create tiled wallpapers for Fvwm and other WMs that have limited auto-scaling. A few wallpapers (960x540) to work on different screen resolutions, such as 3840x2160 and 1024x600.

Found a filter in Gimp that creates seamless images.

The linked file is not a jpeg (that's just a thumbnail in front of the actual data)

Takes a random base, scales it to screen dimensions, overlays a(n ARGB) tile and optionally puts something nice into the center.
You get the detail of the tile at arbitrary resolutions, but not as boring (because of some background texture/gradient)
