They are all under the "Cinema HD" folder on my iDisk.

You can hit preview and see which one you like. Actually, I took those from the Apple Store. :: opps ::

Thanks. I thought I had seen some of the other pics before. As a heads-up for anyone who has a large display or multi display setup, these are real quality files. Many are around 5000px by 3000 px and I think there might be enough sharpness for final backgrounds with maybe 2500px, 3000px total width.

Being a fan of Superman, i quickly put together this wallpaper, which consists of Superman covers, drawn by Jim Lee and inked by Sean Williams, who together are putting out some stunning art.

I just took a screenshot of my desktop. I have provided a link rather then posting an image as it is quite wide or 50% the width of my 2560x1600 screen resolution.

See http://mandolux.mine.nu/ for the images I have used as wallpaper. Mando is a member here at Appleinsider and that is how I came across all those fantastic shots I have used as wallpaper!

I found it somewhere in deviantART, but I don't have it anymore; courtesy of kernel panic + forced to install a fresh OS X copy.

Sorry. If I find it, I'll PM you.

Shift-cmd-3 will save a pdf file of your screen to your desktop. You'll have to convert it to JPG yourself.

Shift-cmd-4 will give you crosshairs to select only part of the screen.

Use Snapz X Pro 2.0....

but I can't just paste that in photoshop...
how do I actually put it DOWN in an app? and which app?
thanks
post #1753 of 1796
command (apple)-shift-3 = capture screen
command-shift-4 = capture with crosshairs
command-shift-4, then spacebar = capture element (window, menubar, Dock, etc.)

To copy the screen capture to the clipboard, hold down control with any of these combinations. You can paste the image into any app that can create or edit images (except iPhoto apparently \) and save out from there.

Also, you can use the Grab application in your utilities folder for a few more options, including what format to save in.

Finally, to convert any of your screen grabs from .pdf or any other format to another format, open the screen grab (placed on the desktop by default) in the Preview application and choose Export from its File menu. Preview is handy as more than just a print preview viewer.

PS: while the Help Viewer is still oddly slow on this OS, it does have pages about grab and these shortcuts when you do a search for "print screen." Of course, they're mixed in with other print -- as in paper -- documentation, but that's why we call them screen grabs on this side of the fence.

post #1756 of 1796
no no no...that is an old 'Johny come lately'trick and gives you to much hassle when you gonna save it (pdf/photo-shop bs)

simple:

Click for Capture Me so one can make screendumps,dvd-screendumps or whatever screen-picture you want.
When you have it: Drag the little screen over what you wanna copy.CTRL+ click it, and then apple+S to save it
Name it what you want and put an .jpg! at the end, and your are done!

If you wanna have 2nd & 3rd options:

SnaproX and FreeSnap and even Digitally Obsessed

No... that's not a "trick". It's built in to the OS, and users might not want to install and run third-party solutions. BuonRotto mentioned that holding donw "ctrl" with the key combinations will give you the identical behavior to Windows. Personally, I just use Preview to convert the files. It's easy when opening the .pdf file into preview is simply a double-click away. It literally takes seconds.
