I want good LOTR/Hobbit wallpapers Can't Post

So i would love to have a nice wallpaper in nice quality for my computer. Resolution 1920x1200. I have been looking everywhere on Google but i don't find anything beautiful. So i thought if you guys had some awesome wallpapers in the right resolution? You could share them with me on this thread?

I am not sure if i post this thread on the right place but any moderator, feel free to move it. And have my apologize.

But i really wanna see that, i wanna see that scene where we see Sauron walking the steps INSIDE of Bara-Dûr and taking his seat upon his dark throne and summoning the eye, looking into the camera and then BAM! THE END.


-My thoughts on the best ending scene/post credit scene on TABA.

The Hobbit official site [In reply to] Can't Post

They just released some great wallpapers (the banners that were released). I rotate between them right now. But yeah, go to Google and image search LOTR/Hobbit, and specify your dimensions. Other than the official site that's all you can do really.

you'll get more if you're prepared to tailor images to your specific resolution [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't find that many when I only search for my monitor so I'm willing to either cut or expand (there are 'tricks' for not lowering the resolution if you have a picture *almost* big enough).

Did you know you can do a google image search by specific sizes?

put search terms into a google image search

click "Search Tools"

That reveals options including "Size"

Open the pull down menu and choose "Exactly"

That opens up a pop up where you can enter the pixel dimensions.


alternately, just choose 'large', find ones you like, and then make them be the size you want.

Crop it if you need it smaller.

If you need it bigger but you don't want to enlarge it (so that it becomes blurry) then I'll often create another layer of the same image in Photoshop, enlarge that layer to the full width and height of the desired size, then blur the crap out of it.




sometimes I pixelate the background for interest



You also might be able to choose to have your monitor display images with black bars on the top and bottom or left and right for ones that aren't the exact dimension.

I have my wallpapers rotating every hour. My resolution is 1920 x 1080 or I'd share what I have with you. I'll still share what I have if you want that dimension size.

too bad it's in the wrong orientation [In reply to] Can't Post

You can search for other sizes of the same image but doing that with this image will likely get you more covers. Not the base image the cover was created with. (I just tried with no luck)

Besides searching by size, you can also search by 'Time'. You could set it to give you results posted in the last month if you want to see only the most recent wallpapers.

Here's the old LOTR site for their wallpapers. I have little hope they'll have your dimension.
