Just to add a note to this thread, I just realized that most (if not
all) of the Wikipedia featured images would have acceptable licenses and
there are specific categories for those that would make good background

    Hi All,
    I've been wandering recently, why doesn't Ubuntu come with more
    wallpapers? It currently only comes with three wallpapers, all of which
    are made on the computer; whereas Windows XP comes with lots of very
    nice wallpapers, including actual photos. For those who don't know what
    I'm talking about, here are a few examples (I home Microsoft don't hunt
    me down for this):

    I am aware that because Ubuntu is free and open source, it would not be
    possible to hire professional photographers, but I expect that there
    would be some people in the Ubuntu community willing to "donate" photos
    which they have taken to Ubuntu. For example, if you went on holiday and
    took a picture of an important landmark, and the photo looked
    professional, the photo could be considered for inclusion in Ubuntu as a
    desktop background, if the photographer was willing to publish it under
    an appropriate license.

    An obvious way of getting pictures form photographer to developer is via
    art.ubuntu.com <http://art.ubuntu.com>. The higher rated user
    uploaded photos should be
    considered by the developers for inclusion in Ubuntu.
