    Here's the full-res Mojave 'Day' (different to the one posted above): https://we.tl/ebBx6muHT7

    Interesting titbit: the dynamic wallpaper is stored as a .heic and is around 120MB.

    Some have the ability to change throughout the day, yes.

    Sure, there are only two included along with the dynamic one.

    Here is the dark version, along with the dynamic .heic for kicks (not sure if it's of any use if you're not on Mojave, but maybe someone is interested): https://we.tl/TQFnwRkvBG

    Thanks :)

    No, I am not on macOS 10.14; I have to update later this week to ensure my app works fine on it.

    Thanks for sharing! Didn't Apple release 4 Mojave wallpapers. You saw it when they showed the dynamic wallpaper feature. Are those separate images or do they have to be activated through the dynamic feature?

    There are three selectable in System Prefs: day, night (both static) and dynamic. I think dynamic should have a 'gradient' of images from day to night (I'm not sure how many it actually includes, might be more than 4), but it isn't working for me in this beta.

    You have to enable Location Services in System Preferences to make the dynamic wallpaper work.
    I've done this and enjoyed watching it get darker as night approaches where I am.

    Are you using Dark Mode? I have Location Services enabled, but when I select the dynamic wallpaper, it just stays on the night version of the Mojave picture no matter what time of day it is.

    It only works with the light interface. When you use the dark interface it switches to the night Mojave picture.

    Also there's only one image. Looks like the OS itself edits the picture on-the-fly.

    So the dynamic wallpaper will change if you are set to the light interface, but will it change the UI elements to a dark interface automatically at nightfall?

    The Apple website has a slider that seems to support that theory, but I haven't tried it myself.

    Not that I've seen so far, no. Just the desktop picture.

    Ha! Wow, a blast from the past. I can't recall for certain but I think that wallpaper came with one of the feature packs MS made available during XP's life cycle. Haven't seen that image in probably 10+ years.

    But it's not that similar to the Apple one IMHO. Apple's has a very pleasing symmetry missing in the MS one. It's also got a wider perspective (of course, we've got wider screens now than we did in the early aughts).

    Nice, I was hoping someone would do that. So I wonder if 16 images is the limit for this feature or if that's just all Apple chose to use for this particular wallpaper.

    Nice to see that the images are actually time lapse (clouds are different in each one) rather than just messing with artificial image adjustments to simulate brightening/dimming.

    I am interested to see how the transition is handled "in the moment". I assume it's some sort of fade in, although with different cloud positions between images I guess that would look weird. Hopefully someone who actually has this feature working will notice one of the transitions and can report back.

    I hope others start making dynamic wallpaper packs available for Mojave. This is definitely a very cool feature.

    Besides bright to dark transitions, you could also have other creative changes throughout the day:
    A car spinning slowly 180 degrees.
    A flower blooming.
    Ocean tide coming in or out. ​
