    My computer reverted the desktop image back to the default image upon booting. In system preferences it showed that my preferred background was still the one selected. I clicked on the default image and then on the one I wanted and it returned to the way I wanted.

    Does anyone know why this may have happened? I'm running 10.8.2 so it could be an error Apple still has to work through with the OS. I'm not very familiar with programming of computers so I don't really want to make too many guesses on what it could be.

    If you are using a rMBP, then this is a known issue and Apple has not, as of right now, pushed a fix

    Yeah I have a retina. Thank you for helping.

    Sorry if that was already in another spot since it is a known issue. I just scanned the thread titles for things about the display desktop.
