    Go out and take one?

    They're pretty standard landscape styled photos...

    Yeah. I know you might think that sounds like a stupid suggestion, but I don't think that photo is particularly special, so it's only a matter of taking a photo of something with the source of light facing the camera directly, creating a silhouette of the subject.

    I have lots of photos like that that can be used as desktop backgrounds, but not that particular photo. :eek:

    They're more than likely stock photos you can buy online.

    I seem to remember people finding the photo they used in some of their other product shots sometime ago.

    That's not even a desktop - that's iPhoto 6 in full-screen mode.

    I'll bet you that Apple paid for an exclusive license for those. They would not want a competitor to being using the same image. If it was a stock image it would not be available anymore.

    Yes iPhoto would look nice if it were filled with profesional images but then that would be useless. The point of iPhoto is to catalog your images
