Wallpapers make it easy to jazz up your computer. They show your taste and flair for creativity. But every device has a pre-set width and length. You need to consider the dimensions of your computer and then get the right desktop wallpaper size. The right wallpaper size ensures that it won't get stretched, and none of its portions will get chopped off. If it has a written message, then it will not get cut too.

Adding too many design elements on a single wallpaper
You will find hundreds of wallpapers out there that look overwhelming. A single glance at them is enough to get you a headache. Too many focal points, colors, and elements ruin the purpose of your wallpaper.
Adding a long quote or too much text
Getting your wallpaper a fair amount of text is cool. But adding too much text will overlap the other image or element. Even if you’re using a motivational quote, pick a shorter one.
