Get Bing wallpapers without Bing watermark

Bing's extensive image gallery is a well known source for nice wallpapers. It contains very beautiful landscapes, nature and animal photos and other amazing pictures which look nice on the desktop. When you download these images, they are shown with a watermark, which can ruin the impression and beauty of the image when it is used as the desktop background. Here is how to download images without a watermark.

To get images without a watermark, you need to use a web browser which comes with developer tools. For example, I will use Mozilla Firefox. Here is what you have to do.

  1. Open Firefox and navigate to gallery
  2. Click the image you like so it will open.Bing gallery open image
  3. Now, right click the black area with the image description and select "inspect element".inspect element
  4. The Inspector tool will open at the bottom of the browser. There, click the element called "detailImageContainer":detailImageContainer
  5. Expand it and copy the URL of the "detailImage" element:detailImage
  6. Now, paste the URL you copied into the browser address bar and remove the first two backslashes. In my example, the URL is

    Edit to get the following:

    Now, press Enter and you will get the full image without the Bing watermark:Bing image without watermark

Update #1. I uploaded a number of images I already downloaded here:
Yandex Disk and Mega

The archive contains 1229 wallpapers in 1366*768 and 41 images in 1920*1080.

Update #2. There is an excellent web site which stores the Bing wallpaper archive. As an option, it also hosts images without watermarks!

That's it. This trick works with Bing Gallery as of May 1st, 2016. But Microsoft can remove this ability at any moment.

      1. Hello, Sergey!

        About Get Bing wallpapers without Bing watermark.
        My Firefox Developer Edition have no the option “detailImageContainer”.
        Please, how can I get it?

  1. ok…but here i have a new and better solution.
    no need to open developer tools…use firefox or chrome (didn’t tried opera, might work too),
    1. go to
    2. Click the image you like so it will open.
    3. Click and hold the left mouse click button in the center part of the opened image and drag towards New Tab Button, a small black UP ARROW will appear then release the left mouser click button. Done !
    your image will be opened in a new tab with it’s own link.
    4. Edit the image link in the address bar and replace “1366×768” with “1920×1080”.
    In most cases, it’s working and the image will open in FULL HD 1080p resolution without watermark.
    right click on image and choose “save image as…”

  2. Images without the watermark usually have lower quality, e.g. higher jpeg compression – also some images in the gallery do not allow image downloads for licensing reasons hence you can’t retrieve them with editing the urls to 1920×1080

  3. Another way to get Bing Wallpapers (they change every day), most of them 1920×1080, is:
    a) navigate (i use Firefox) to regional page (e.g. for United States is “”)
    b) right click on page then choose “view source page”
    c) search for string “g_img={url:'” ; after this string there’s image link, call it imgSubLink
    d) full image link will be “” + imgSubLink

    other regional pages:
    Canada, “”
    United Kingdom, “”
    France, “”
    Germany, “”
    Spain, “”
    Italy, “”
