Stunningly beautiful high resolution photos from OS X

34 posts in this topic

If you have Mountain Lion, open Finder, and point it to this address
/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.Framework/Versions/A/Resources/Default Collections/
 
On Mavericks: /Library/Screen Savers/Default Collections

Or download here : http://www.4shared.c...HDDesktops.html
 
Copy them all to your Pictures folder or elsewhere, and enjoy the high resolution (3200 x 2000) photos. They really are beautiful.
 
Enjoy! :)

I have put them all in a folder, and they are now randomly displayed as desktop wallpaper, changing every 5 minutes.

I'm not a fan of these file sharing sites but this is the real deal and it's reasonably fast: http://www64.zippyshare.com/v/76715389/file.html (the captcha gives you the download link).

Indeed. The photos are really great. On my 27-inch screen, they look amazing. I have been staring at my screen quite a few times since last Thursday. LOL :D

How can I edit my original post to include the location of the photos on OS X Mavericks, and my Dropbox link that I posted in a later post?

 

 

You can't. There is a 30 minute timeframe for editing posts.

Not in Mavericks :(

If you dual-boot ML and Mavericks (which, as long as you have the disk space is far from difficult) you can use the same pictures as wallpaper in Mavericks as well.

 

Apple (like Microsoft) has habitually included several fantastic background wallpapers with the OS (typically the GM bits - which is why Mavericks doesn't have them yet); that they did so with ML (as was the case with Lion, Snow Leopard, and even Leopard beforehand) is FAR from surprising.

 

The fun factor is taking that same collection of desktop backgrounds and copying them to an NTFS partition, so you can use them as wallpaper in *Windows*.

It is in Mavericks.

 

I posted the location in a previous post.

I didn't think that it would be this popular! Dropbox just told me it's been downloaded way too often! LOL

:shiftyninja:

Will have to put the file elsewhere! You'll have to update my post again later!
