To see an overview of all Global FlyFisher wallpapers, please go to the wallpaper page. From there you can choose a wallpaper.

Instructions

We offer all wallpapers in high quality JPEG format. JPG will offer good quality, download fast and take up a little space - on our server and on your hard disk.

  1. Choose the pixel size that fits your screen best and click on the desired file.
  2. Wait for the picture to download completely in your browser
  3. Right click (pc) or click and hold the mouse button (Mac)
  4. Select 'Set as wallpaper' from the menu or select 'Save picture as', save it on your hard disk and later use the Desktop control panel to set the new picture as wallpaper.

Frequently asked questions

Can I use the files for my Mac?
Yes, you certainly can. Use the JPG format and your browsers' wallpaper function as described above.

Do I have do download the files to my local hard disk?
Yes. In order to load the wallpaper every time your computer starts, it has to have the file the hard disk, but the browser will most likely take care of that if you just use the menu 'Set as wallpaper'.

Can I use these beautiful, high resolution pictures for other purposes, like in my new book, in a magazine, on my own web site or in other publications?
No way! These pictures are all protected by common copyright laws, and are the property of each of the photographers. We offer them as computer desktop wallpapers only, and that does not allow you to use them for other purposes—particularly not for publishing. If you want to use a picture for something other than a computer wallpaper, please read our copyright notices and contact us before doing anything else.

Can I submit my own photos to make a GFF wallpaper?
Absolutely! We need a high quality, relevant and suitable picture to create the different files from. A sharp scan in at least 1200*1600 pixels or an original digital image is a good foundation. Make sure it is as good as they come. Contact Martin before you do anything further. If you just want to show your picture to others, consider submitting it to our GFFPix User's Picture Galery.

How do I remove the wallapaper again?
If you insist on removing our beautiful backgrounds, use the Desktop section in your Control Panel and set the wallpaper to none - or just delete the file from your hard disk.
