Post old wallpapers here, preferably late 90's, early 2000's. Doesn't have to be "y2k" aesthetic necessarily, there's already a thread for that. Most of these will be low resolution.

For anyone interested, here are some upscaled vintage wallpapers I uploaded in my upscale thread:
>>7910234
>>7910253
>>7910254
>>7910257
>>7910258
>>7910259

>>7910261
>>7910262
>>7910264
>>7910265
>>7910266
>>7910267

Almost all of these upscales were done by me. If anyone wants me to upscale a tiny pape, let me know. I'll try my best. Not promising any miracles though.

I love it too, the worst thing is that I want to try my hand at replicating this style and I have zero clue how to actually do it. Do you reckon any programs they could've used?

I use Gigapixel AI to upscale them & I use GIMP to touch them up afterwards.

Gigapixel works wonders but sometimes it has a hard time with certain images. And here there was a struggle with the color reproduction. But otherwise, it upscaled nicely.

I think they used Bryce software & I think it's still around.

Old papes were kino. It's tempting to switch back to some vintage CRT monitor just to use them again.
>>
>>7918317
If you could upscale >>7918584 [cubes] whenever you have time, I would appreciate it greatly. And I would also just like to say thank you for taking time out from your life to share your impressive wallpaper collection with /wg/ - they are all extraordinarily cool. I've saved pretty much all of them and would like to try my hand at making wallpapers in this classic style one of these days.

I'm glad you liked them. I just like seeing a nice old wallpaper get upscaled and be given a second life. It's fun.

>would like to try my hand at making wallpapers in this classic style one of these days.

Same here. I think the program they used back in the day was Bryce & that is still in development.

Here's another version enhanced with DeNoise AI.

>>7919830
>>7919932
Saved both of these. Thank you once again for upscaling this awesome wallpaper, along with posting a second version ran through DeNoiseAI(!) - incredibly generous of you. Both versions of cubes look very sharp and they will enjoy a home in my collection of classic wallpapers.

Fun fact: you can dig up lots of obscure gems just by using web.archive.org & searching captures of old websites like DeviantArt, pixelhuset.se , baixaki.ig.com.br/site/lwall16_1.htm , heise.de/ct/motive

Here are some papes by thisign on DeviantArt
