Desktop wallpapers are probably the easiest and most popular way to customize a Mac and there’s nothing wrong with a collection of great photographs that don’t cost a penny. Free wallpaper photos. What’s not to like?
The App That Makes Wallpaper
Don’t ask me about the business model that makes professional photographs available as Desktop wallpaper for Mac users. I don’t understand why they’re free, but I’m not complaining.
Kuvva Wallpapers is a curated collection of Mac Desktop wallpapers supposedly from leading photographers, designers, and illustrators.
Whether that’s actually true or not, I don’t know for sure, but I am sure that the photos and designs are better than I can come up with on my own.
And, since the whole shebang is free, why not take a look?
Kuvva is a Mac app that does the wallpaper downloads, but gives you options to skip forward through images (or backwards, if you’re so inclined).
Controls are simple to use, including the option to automatically refresh wallpaper, and select what type of images.
The wallpaper photos and designs are similar to those for the Kuvva app for iPhone.

So, what’s not to like about a nice collection of professional photos and designs to grace your Mac’s Desktop?
Retina display support for the MacBook Pro would be nice. Even though Kuvva is free that’s not too much to ask, is it?
Many Mac users have multiple displays. Wouldn’t it be great to put a different Desktop wallpaper for each display?
I’m making an assumption that the designers and photographers offer their respective wares in exchange for some publicity.
Wallpapers are like chocolate. You can never get enough, so, while free, the collection is limited and not exactly up to date or up to discriminating Mac user standards.
