Easy Viewing

05-21-13 UPDATE: BRIGHTER WALLPAPERS NOW ALLOWED. :D :D :D :D :D CHANGES LISTED BELOW

Welcome to “Easy Viewing."

What we are looking for in general, is wallpapers that are icon friendly. In other words, a practical wall that will enable people’s icons to show easily, but have attractiveness and style as well.

Walls in this group should have some or all of the following characteristics.

Low contrast muted patterns or images

Blurred backgrounds

A solid background with a small logo on it, or a border down a side of a solid wallpaper.

Solid colored walls are fine. Brighter and pale colors are fine also, as long as there are no sharp contrasts in them.

Walls with a small brighter splash of color or colors.

Walls with several colors are fine as long as the hues and patterns don't cause icons to be hard to read.

January 25, 2015 Hi all... I am going to stop moderating submissions now, and see how it goes. I'll be checking often, to make sure that walls fit in well. Happily, most of them have. : )

Please see the Group Details for more tips & information..

Groups Similar to This One? GREAT IDEA!!!

The reason I founded this group originally, was to more or less replace one that I liked a lot that vanished off of Desktop Nexus.

The Group was called Minimalism. But...

I have come to realize that Easy Viewing is NOT a true replacement for it. I know that because I have rejected some wallpapers that would have fit nicely in that former group.

I suppose that I could have named this group "Almost Solid...." but there is no way that I am going to go through another name change!!! lol

I believe that there is plenty more room for Groups similar to this one on DN. Especially groups that are not as strict about what they are looking for as I am turning out to be...

If someone would like to start up a new Minimalist Group, I would be happy to join up! :) Another possibility for a similar group could be "Easy Viewing Lighter Shades".

I hope and want very much for you all to keep adding wallpapers into this group. But there definitely are other sorts of "Easy Viewing" type groups that can be started. So I hope you all keep contributing to this one. Believe me, I do not want to be the only person adding walls to it!

I hope some of you do create some similar groups to this one! I'll join them all! And that way, I won't have to feel guilty about turning wallpapers down for this group that are almost right, but not quite. :P

If you have ideas for a similar group or you definitely want to start a similar group, be sure to post about it on this discussion thread. Or if you want to, start a new thread, especially if you have a new group to announce! :D

PS. I don't have plans to start a similar group at the moment, but that could change. I'll report it here if I decide to start another one. If I do start another one, it will probably be an open submission group. : )

I have just expand "Easy Viewing" to contain both darker and lighter hued wallpapers. Be sure to read the Updates on the home page.
