Background pictures on Windows 8.1

I've been searching for (royalty) free screen savers with art photos such as Magnum or Getty image. But haven't found any yet. During a meeting with Lhoist employees, I noticed the beautiful screen saver they had. The beautiful imagery was coming from the Lhoist collection and its screen savers. Something to be jealous of.

With my new high-res Windows 8.1 laptop (3200 x 1800), I also wanted to enjoy some nice pictures. For now I've settled for the daily images from Bing. After some experiments, I've settled for 2 applications to get them on my laptop.

First is Chameleon which I use to set the Windows lock screen.

Second app is Bing Desktop that I use for setting the desktop background.

Will stay on the outlook for ways to get art photos on the lock screen and desktop.
