Question ID: 127113
I am trying to find a beautiful picture that would be used as a desktop background (wallpaper). The picture is a beach scene, probably an island, with blue water and white sand. There is a lone beach chair, unoccupied, and possibly a palm tree. I have thoroughly searched webshots, and there is a picture that is similar, but not it (see http://community.webshots.com/photo/24866171/35018351ruCPoI). I was at CompUSA the other day, and I passed by an iBook (or a PowerBook) that had a beach-themed screen saver running on it. I think the picture I'm looking for was one of the pictures in that screen saver. While I was there, I attempted to extract the pictures from the screen saver, but I'm Mac-challenged and had no success. Can you please help me find this picture?

Aaronpb, The image you found on that iBook is included in the "Screen Effects" system preference in Mac OS X. Someone has already extracted and posted the image you are looking for to their website, linked below. For your desktop picture, click on the image to see and download the full-size version. http://die-glueckspilze.de/Arbeit/ All of the beach images from the "Screen Effects" program are just numbered Beach01.jpg, Beach02.jpg, etc. so if you want more from this series you could search Google images for those filenames. Or, you can follow the instructions below to get the images from a Mac running OS X: 1. In the Finder (the happy Mac icon in the dock), navigate to "System/Library/Screen Savers/." 2. Control-click (or right-click on a two-button mouse) on "Beach.slideSaver" (or whichever theme you wish to view). A context menu will pop up. Choose "Show package contents." 3. Navigate to "Contents/Resources." 4. The "Resources" folder will list all of the JPEG image files which make up the screen saver theme. In this case, "Beach01.jpg" is the first of the series and that is what is linked above. Search strategy: "beach01.jpg" Google image search I hope this helps! Regards, mother-ga
