This will probably be best answered by someone with a Mac and/or
reasonable OS X knowledge.

I need jpg images for all the wallpapers that come with Mac OS X. All
the categories - abstract, nature, etc. I thought I was a pretty good
Googler but I've searched the internet for a couple of hours and only
found two.

The abstract ones are my main priority so if you can't get all
categories then please focus of these.

My PC resolution is 1400x1050 so it would be best if the images were
that resolution or higher but no lower than 1024x768 please.

Hi michaeldent-ga,
I found one site that has all the wallpapers that come with Mac OS X.
Whatever was not suppose to be 1024x768 (checking from /Library/Desktop Pictures),
I have included images from other sites so that the resolution matches
up with Mac OS X default wallpapers.

By the way, some wallpapers like Classic Aqua Blue and Classic Aqua
Graphite are 1024x768 on my system and I have not resized any of my
desktop wallpapers.
