KQED Desktop Wallpaper

Download beautiful, whimsical KQED wallpaper for your computer desktop. The instructions are simple:

1. Click the text link corresponding to the appropriate size below. If you're not sure which size to use, choose 1600x1200 for a standard monitor or 1900x1200 for a widescreen monitor. Your computer can shrink the image to fit with no loss of quality.

2. Wait for the image to appear in a new window and finish loading.

3. Right-click (or control-click, if using a Mac) the image and choose "Set as Background," "Set As Desktop Background," or "Use Image as Desktop Picture."

4. That's it! If the resulting image is extremely blurry or small, be sure you haven't accidentally set the thumbnail image on this page as your wallpaper.
