When you move the cursor over a thumbnail, the resolution of the wallpaper image will be displayed (i.e. width X height, 1920x1200). When you select a wallpaper by clicking on the thumbnail, the preview will be updated. This allows you to see how it will look with your selected skin. Wallpapers included in skins are displayed at the far left, and are separated by a vertical line of dots between them and non-skin wallpapers (to the right).
You can filter by colours used in each wallpaper, by clicking the desired colours to the right of the word "All" (which lists all coloured wallpapers). For instance, clicking "Red" will only display thumbnails that have a lot of red or reddish colours. Clicking "Red" & "Green" will display wallpapers with the majority of both colours in them. There are also options for "Light" (coloured wallpapers) and "Dark" shades. You can combine any of these to help find the desired type of image. as you add more wallpaper images, these features will be helpful.
Clicking "All" will uncheck all colors & shades and display all wallpapers.
Each wallpaper has a rating, each is given three stars (default). You can change the rating by clicking on the number of stars. You can then search for wallpapers of a given rating or above, by clicking on the number of stars (or higher) you want to see.

You can filter by both colour(s) and rating to find the best match.
