I'm thinking of not emphasizing 16:10 ratio anymore. Do people still use that?

Yes, 16:10 forever h8ters!

No, my 16:9 monitor threatened me with dead pixels if I ever place a 16:10 monitor next to it

I don't care, I can't see my background with all the icons in front of it anyway

I'm currently still using a 16:10 monitor here, and while I do have plans to upgrade to a 16:9 1440p or 4K monitor, this will not be anytime soon. In the meantime I do hope you can continue making wallpapers in the 16:10 format.

If you don't wish to though, I won't force you.

Won't make any difference on my 21:9. Have to adjust the wallpapers myself anyway. :D
Actually I have this Luna's Moon 16:9 by mysticalpha with some cropping as a login screen. :D

i honestly have no clue what my screen ratio is i just save everything and let the computer deal with what's coming up on the screensaver/desktop background. I say go with what you want let the download button worry about it

For desktop backgrounds, I try to find 32:9 aspect ratio...

I use it exclusively! :iconrarityknowsplz: But it's not like a 16:9 ratio image won't fit on my 16:10. In fact, it adds nice poster character with black at the top and bottom. :meow:

I find the 16 by 10 ratio still really good for alot of things including image making.
Plus alot of well composed 16 by 10 background I find in 1920x1200 can easily be masked from top and bottom to be 16 by 9 (1920x1080) or cropped from the sides to be 4 by 3 (1600x1200)

The once popular 1.66:1 format for Europe Theaters is in between 16 by 9 and 16 by 10 and Disney rendered all of their CAPS animated films in 1.66:1 though they were often shown in theaters masked to 1.85:1  (16 by 9 is 1.78:1)

I wouldn't have to worry about ratios if cropping the image wouldn't crop out part of my name in the corner. I'll have to awkwardly move it in.

Would love if you made some of those :D (is a bit much to ask, I know)

I didn't know people still use something that square, 16:9 make all of my PC happy.
