Desktop backgrounds for ubuntu 16.04 LTS

When I download new desktop backgrounds for ubuntu 16.04 they look good on the internet sites but after I download them and set them as the background they are always fuzzy and out of focus. Is there some site where I can get backgrounds without this problem?

As Emerson said, find out the resolution of your monitor, then search wallpapers by that size. For example, "Ubuntu wallpapers 1280x1024"
