I’m always looking for backgrounds for client websites or my own websites… a cool background can change the whole look and feel of your site! Give it a new face lift. A new background can even change a basic and possibly even blah theme into a kick ass theme if it’s the right background. Can turn a girly theme into a grunge theme.. so on and etc.. Finding that nifty new background image can however be difficult and somewhat of a challenege if you don’t know where to look. So, I’m gonna help you out here.. below are some links to websites that I use when I’m looking for that new background image. I hope you find them useful! Don’t forget to bookmark them. Or do what I do and create a folder in your Pictures folder labeled Backgrounds and just save backgrounds you come across that you like and maybe you’ll end up using in the future..but then again if you do like me.. you’ll end up with an ungoldy amount of graphics and icons..etc.. I’m somewhat of a graphic horder if there is such a thing…then I’m it!
