Extra note
If you just want a normal menu size image without having to resize it after download, try this site:

https://www.desktopbackground.org

After finding an image that will look ok with black or white text,
download it with Horizontal 800 x Vertical 600 size setting.

Your taskbar image looks better on my computer with taskbar settings on tile, instead of stretching.
