Hidden Mavericks wallpaper location?

So on the product site for the Haswell rMBP's, there are a number of gorgeous wallpapers. I remember Mountain Lion had a bunch of wallpapers hidden in a Frameworks/ScreenSaver folder, including that canyon image from the original 13" rMBP...but that folder doesn't exist in Mavericks.

Anyone have any idea where to find these?

Don't know, but you can get the wallpapers here. They're not ideal though.

The folder's been moved to /Library/Screen Savers/Default Collections. Unfortunately it doesn't look like it has the images you're looking for.

Yea, I was wrong on that. How do we know those wallpapers are not just for advertisement purposes?

They might be. I remember the zebra wallpaper they used in the press shot for the original retina MacBook was eventually included I think when Mountain Lion came out. Maybe they'll officially include them after awhile, but I thought they would have came with Mavericks.

Those aren't wallpapers. Those are images/videos being edited on the machines in the image for examples.

Actually the one with the mac part closed I have see on MANY wallpaper sites. At least one very similar to it.

They have to be located somewhere. Check out the Buy Now page for the new rMBP's. This page used to show the canyon wallpaper for the 13" rMBP and the zebra wallpaper for the 15". Both of those could be found in that screen saver folder buried within Frameworks.

Just because it is being used in advertising does not mean the same photos are hidden in the new software. So, no, they don't have to be located in Mavericks.

If last year is any indication, they are. I bet someone finds them. Thanks for your help.

Does anyone have any familiarity with that Frameworks folder to figure out where else to look? I get worried playing around in there and would rather have a direct location to go to.

/Library/Desktop Pictures/

found with a simple search for large images:

find /Library -size +2M -a -name "*.jpg" 2>/dev/null

Some images are like 10MB


So here's the nice part:

I want all the pictures in one folder and then delete the ones I don't like, since I don't want to copy all the images and waste space on my drive I just make a link to all pictures and just delete the links I don't like. Then set this folder with a lot of links (87) in your settings and voila (:

Script to generate all the links easily:

$ mkdir folder
$ cd folder
$ find /Library/Desktop\ Pictures /Library/Screen\ Savers/Default\ Collections \( -name "*.jpg" -or -name "*.png" \) -and \! -path "*.thumbnails*" -and \! -path "*Solid Colors*" -exec ln -s "{}" . \;

I don't see this folder in Mavericks. No Library/Desktop Pictures folder.

Thanks but those aren't what I'm looking for. Read my original post. I was referring to the backgrounds on Apple's new MBP product pages.

Those wallpapers are not included in the OS. You'll have to get them from other sources on the internet.

As others have mentioned, just because they use them in ad images, doesn't mean they include them with the OS.

And if you're referring to the first two photos, you can clearly see those are images they are using as examples of photo editing on Mac, not stock wallpapers.
