1920x1080 is too small by today's standards. If you're going to use 16:9 aspect ratio, go at least 2560x1440. Anyone who is non-retarded can resize down to 1080 just by telling their computer to fit the image to desktop. A 1440 pape usually upscales to 4K nicely, especially if you make the original in high quality, such as 600 dpi (or even 800 dpi), and if you use .jpg files, set the compression to 95% or better such as 98% (which is basically the same filesize as 95% but holds very slightly better if it's upscaled to 3840x2160. Lossless .png is also a good option to explore & use, when practical.

Keep in mind, if you want to 'future proof' your papes so that they're still useful & relevant in 5 or 10 years, people are going to want to upscale them to 8K. And, eventually, higher. So, the highest quality that you provide at the beginning will give them extra, useful life expectancy.

I've had a lot of miserable experiences finding great old images from the 1998 Internet, but you just can't salvage a 640x480 .jpg that was saved as 50% compression at 72 dpi to conserve bandwidth. Explore and maximize quality as much as you can, try to upscale some of your own images occasionally just to see what happens. Take one of your 1080 images from this thread and blow it up to 15360x8640 (16K) just for giggles to examine where it looks good and where it fails. Before you do ANY editing/resizing, the first thing to ALWAYS do is set the DPI at 1200 or 2400. You can always reduce it after the final edits if needed.

REQ: go back to your original of this >>7801523

Please set dpi to 1200 first, then crop out about the same area as pic-related, and resize (if necessary) to 4K 3840x2160.

Your dragonfly >>7801529 is very nice. I've got a couple in my archive from several years ago; I'll try to fond one or two and add them.

I also like spiders.

Absolutely awesome. That will definitely give you premium quality to start with. I'd definitely set my exported image to 2400x2400 dpi before I began any editing, or even higher (6000) if I was going for serious pro quality. As I said, once you've got your final image edits where you want them, you can always drop that down for public consumption (300 or 600 is amazing for most people).

Notice my spider >>7801563 is 180x180 DPI and a 95% .jpg. That edit.crop was done before I learned some of these tricks: >>7801544. It looks great on my 32" 2560x1440 IPS today, but now I want to revisit the original and see if I can improve on it. When I find my dragonflies, the spider should be close by.

Also notice the filename with the date and the sequence number from my Nikkon. Find an indexing habit that allows you to find your originals. Trust me. Years from now you'll want a method that makes finding them a little bit less of a Hell.

>pic related: Not mine. But I do collect stuff that grabs my eye.

i know this is a bit of stretch but im looking for a wallpaper of a sprout with some kind of static over the whole wallpaper, it also contains a quote that goes something along "if youve sit through a third of a movie and its shit, no one would blame you for walking out as it likely wont get better" i definitely think my quote is too long

There's a genera; c;ass of bugs called walking sticks. They come in a fairly wide variety of specific shapes & sizes from all over the world. Somewhat related to mantids. They're usually a camouflage creature, with leaf- & stick-like body shapes, almost always ab;e to alter their body color somewhat to blend into whatever they happen to be on. Some species are famous getting a bit large.

Your pic is almost certainly one of them. It appears to be pregnant with eggs, and it only has five legs. It's frontmost left leg is just a stub at the body, probably lost to a bird or some event like that.

Stick insects like the walking stick bug are excellent at camouflage. They belong to the insect order known as Phasmatodea which is commonly referred to as ghost insects of phasmids. They tend to look like leaves or dry twigs which is why they find themselves called leaf bugs.

There are over 3000 species of walking stick bugs worldwide and they are found in all types of weather. Depending on their habitat they adapt to look like the indigenous plants in the area. They come in various sizes and some species are asexual. The largest walking stick bug is native to Borneo and it is known as the Phoebaetictus Kirby. This species can reach 21 inches in length. The smallest species in found in North America and it is known as the TimemaChristinea.
