Have you ever wanted to use a desktop picture from another Mac OS version? Macstudio has them all back to Mac OS 8.

Egads! So many pics that I've never seen...because I've never bothered to look.

But, I went through your linked doc looking for a particular desktop from OS X 10.3, and when I didn't find it, I looked deeper and found that the compilation jumps from OS 9 to OS X 10.4, omitting the OS X versions in between.

I hadn't caught that omission. Neither had I realize how many Tiger desktops there were.

I use the Aeriel screensaver that uses the same high resolution animated images Apple uses in the Apple TV screensaver. Some of those are stunningly 3D on a 4K monitor and I wish I could capture some of those of a desktop.

I never even installed Tiger, so I never saw those - yeah, surprisingly many - desktops 'til today.

I alternate between two desktops, RGB 0,0,0 & 1,1,1...i.e. black & slightly less shiny black. laugh

My desktop would drive you crazy! I currently have a Chinese temple on the banks of a lake on one screen and an Austrian mountain village on the other. Next month they will be something different depending on my mood at the time.

command-shift-3 captures my screensaver as a .png which can be used as a desktop. Is that what you mean?
