    I changed my wallpaper on my new MacBook Pro and now it always reverts. When I reboot it goes back to this one no matter what I do.

    That's a known bug, many have the same issue.

    But, did you already update to 10.8.3 which might resolve the issue?

    Also, try repairing permissions.

    For me it was going to settings and forcing the graphics card to switch, it then showed that another wallpaper was selected. I changed it, and problem was fixed. I'm not sure if that's been the problem for everyone.

    Apple doesn't like users to modify the system :D
    Serious now, I mostly end up relaunching the Dock app, but trashing the .plist sounds like a solution to me - must try.

    Just to be sure OP, did you do the following to keep the wallpaper ? I have no issues with 10.8.3 or even the older 10.8.2....Of course, I don't have a video card, just the onboard video chip...

    1. Save wallpapers in > Finder > Pictures

    2. Now click on System Preferences

    3. Click on Folders that you will have your wallpaper

    4. Click on your favorite wallpaper in the right pane....Wa-La...Done
