Could you upload post the original wallpaper for that screenshot? It's very cool. :thumbup:

Eh, the thing about the wallpapers is that (of course) you're setting them with an 'app'. An online app or web app. So, I haven't dug yet and found where the wallpaper is stored -- and even if I did, I don't know whether it gets a compressed version -- maybe thinking it's more suitable for my screen res and all that. Anywho, here's a slightly less compressed version:

Sorta got to thinking about the 'sizing' and compression and all that. When I used that highway 4k wallpaper in 98SE (actually applied the one uploaded here), I had to resize it down to the screen res in IrfanView, otherwise it totally looked like shit.

Thank you, yes, it's very annoying new thing that it is hard to get a hold of original wallpapers these days, they all resize and alter it. :sick:

Seems Google is offering some 'perks', hoping those are still there for my next install. There's more available than shown, you can scroll...

It's under explore -- perks (explore has an icon that looks like a rocket):
