20 crisp HD wallpapers for a more inspiring Mac.

Creatives drool over Apple displays for good reason: they’re crisp (displays, not creatives), they reproduce colors well, and they look like a work of art. But if you’re lucky to have one of those 4K beauties, you know how difficult it can be to find 4K backgrounds that are a decent match.

Fortunately, we went on an Internet quest for you and sourced a few thousand HD wallpapers for Mac that look every bit as stunning as the displays they are meant for. This post features twenty of our favorites, good enough to become an inspiration fix when you’re staring at your Mac’s screen in a creative deadlock. All of them are 4K HD wallpapers from Wallpaper Wizard 2, so you’ll want to get the app on the Mac App Store to set them on your desktop.
