Where do you get wallpapers for your phone?

Where do you get wallpapers for your phone?
Customizing your phone, without going deep down the rabbit hole of rooting, jailbreaking, and experimenting with tons of launchers, usually consists of 3 steps — set up a wallpaper, choose ringtones, and set up your apps.

Whether you are on iOS, Android, or even Windows 10 for phones, you will always have the choice to add some personal bling to your phone's homescreen via a wallpaper (or theme image, for Windows) of your choice. Some people leave those as they are, others love to put a photo of a relative on there, some will obsessively change their wallpaper and look for the next best picture every day, and hey, there are even those that keep theirs black.

So, assuming you are not one that keeps his wallpaper black, where do you get the background images for your phone?

Where do you get wallpapers for your phone?

I just leave whatever I have on default
I use the stock theme store / default wallpapers
I use my own photos as wallpapers
I use a couple of apps that have awesome wallpaper collections
I dig for specific images from the Internet

I use dark theme and download dark wallpapers mostly from Google image with custom resolution search...and sometimes the ones they usually give on here, but the dark ones. I don't it like when my phone gets too bright with white.

I selected "I dig for specific images from the Internet" because that's the closest to "I get my wallpapers from PhoneArena's ultra 'high-res' wallpaper galleries".

I use papers.co (that's the website but they also have an app too) for most of my wallpapers. I just search by color or kind of picture I'm looking for. If I don't have luck there, I search the internet to match what I'm looking for.

I google images by QHD resolution. I usually look for something dark, or in a hue of blue to blend in with bezel of my Note 7 or wifes S7 Edge. I also make some of my own in Photoshop or RePix.
