    Hi,
    Attached below is what I'm talking about, Lion's new snazzy About this Mac screen. My question was, is it possible to modify the picture on the left so it shows a Lion wallpaper?

    I'm trying to find it in the CoreServices and Library folders but to no avail. Can anyone point me in the direction of the image? Thanks.

    They're all in /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources

    Curious...?

    Why would you want to do this exactly?

    To be all fancypants!

    To see if it's possible.

    For fun.

    OCD.

    To make it yours.

    Nothing to do at work and trying to look busy.

    Don't worry, I'll only mess it up enough to post six threads on MR, rather that the usual ten...

    Heh, you're lucky. The only thing we Mini owners can do is turn the unit on ;)

    You find your computer in this folder:

    Macintosh HD/System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources

    I think I changed com.apple.coreservices.macbook-pro-unibody-15 or something like that.

    That looks cool. Could you please make one for the MacBook Pro Retina with the Mountain Lion wallpaper (it's macbook-pro-15-retina-display I think)?

    Hi, I'd love to, however I have yet to find a programme to convert .icns to 1024x1024 pngs. If you can find a way, I'd put in the wallpaper.
