What is a Wallpaper?

The terms Wallpaper and Desktop Picture refer to an image or repeating pattern used as a background on a computer screen, usually for the desktop of a Graphical User Interface (GUI). ‘Wallpaper’ is the term used in Microsoft Windows, while the Mac OS calls it a ‘desktop background’. Wallpapers on deviantART consist of art spanning virtually all mediums, but all share the common denominator of having standardized dimensions, meant to fit the specific resolution of a computer monitor.
