    After doing a clean install, I've noticed how there are hardly any desktop wallpapers left now... They've even taken all those away! lol :)

    With each version of OS X, Apple takes away 1 wallpaper. Learn to live with it. :D

    I have the Cycle App... It searches RSS feeds etc from the internet and sources wallpapers...

    Pretty cool.


    You can set it to change the wallpaper every 10mins etc too and add your own RS and Flickr feeds...

    My problem is that Desktop & Screen Savers System Prefs keeps forgetting the image folders I add to it.

    You need to start a different thread, we can't fix more than one issue at a time ha ha

    That is a little strange. Have you deleted the .plist file for the screensaver. If the folder structure is stored there. Maybe even the desktop one since it is what is changed.

    I really did not notice. They added some new ones, but I rotate my desktop wallpaper from a folder of my own pics. Any removed wallpapers, I did not notice.

    I think it's probably to keep the download size reasonable.

    I noticed this too and considering that I never change the default wallpaper I guess it's not a big deal. However, I'd still like the option. Does anyone know the disk location of the wallpapers? Maybe I can pull the old ones off my SL disc.

    Thanks.

    I installed right on top of Snow Leopard. I have all the new Lion wallpapers and all of the Snow Leopard wallpapers.

    I really like the wallpaper with the elephant, maybe that's a hint to:

    Mac OS X 10.8 - Elephant ! :D
