Desktop & Screen Saver

This panel offers two ways to show off Mac OS X’s glamorous graphics features: desktop pictures and screen savers.

Desktop

Mac OS X comes with several ready-to-use collections of desktop pictures, ranging from National Geographic–style nature photos to plain solid colors. To install a new background picture, first choose one of the image categories in the list at the left side of the window, as shown in Figure 9-7.

Your choices, greatly expanded in Tiger, include Apple Images (muted, soft-focus swishes and swirls), Nature (bugs, water, Tiger fur), Plants (flowers, soft-focus leaves), Black & White (breathtaking monochrome shots), Abstract (swishes and swirls with wild colors), or Solid Colors (boring grays, blues, and greens).
