Resolution & Aspect Ratio Chart for Wallpaper/Computer Screen Backgrounds

We currently offer the three most common sizes of wallpapers/computer screen backgrounds. If your size is not available, use the chart below to determine what your screen’s aspect ratio (standard, wide or HD) is and select  the recommended file size from our Gallery.

Which Wallpaper Size is Right for My Computer?

Rather than have a whole bunch of different sizes for each of our wallpapers, we have them broken down into the three most common ratios for computers. It is important to get the right ratio for your monitor so that the image won’t need to be stretched or warped to fit properly.
