    Hi,

    One of my favorite wallpapers of all time is the OSX Leopard Aurora default wallpaper.

    I've looked for a long time for this in high quality for the retina iPad. I realize there was a 46 page thread for Retina iPad wallpapers, but the one that was posted on Page 9 was grainy on my iPad for some reason.

    I don't have access to sophisticated Photo editing software. If anyone has the time could they post this wallpaper in 2048 x 2048. I would truly appreciate it.



    Alternatively, if someone has a Retina MacBook Pro could they post the stock version which would undoubtedly be higher resolution than the one on my system that I could crop. Thank you so much!

    There you go ,
    had to do some photoshop magic because the biggest source image only has 1600 vertical pixels (this wallpaper was never included with the retina macbooks btw)

    Thank you, Thank You So Much.

    I really appreciate you taking the time to do that and it looks great! The others just came out grainy, but this one is perfect!

    Thank you!





    I hate to hear that they dropped a legacy wallpaper on the Retina Macs, but Apple isn't nostalgic.

    I went back and forth about asking this, I don't want it to seem like I'm taking advantage of you, please know that I am truly grateful that you took time out of your day to help a stranger.

    If you have time, and if its not too much trouble (I know nothing about photoshop so I don't know if it's time consuming) but could you do the same thing for the Snow Leopard wallpaper? It's probably my second favorite and the other three that I tried weren't that good of quality.


    PLEASE don't feel annoyed, if you don't have the time, or simply don't want to then please don't, it was more than generous that you helped me once before. I just wanted to ask, since your first one came out better then any other that I tried and I promise this will be the last request I make. :D


    Whether or not you help me again, I want to say Thank You one last time for the first image, it is beautiful! It's not everyday you meet nice people! Thanks.


    In case you do decide to do it, I attached the file from my 2011 MacBook Pro since I assume the Retina doesn't have this one either.


    Sincerely,
    Jordan

    By the way, I just realized that I saw your "iMac with Retina Display" mockup not long ago! That looked like exactly like an Apple website screenshot, good job!:)

    It would be awesome if that really happened, but I don't think it will be in 2013 or 2014...aw well.

    My pleasure to help! ,
    This one was a little harder to stretch out without making it look pixelated I did my best would have taken too much time to make it truly perfect and I'm kinda busy hehe
