    Does anyone here know of some really good abstract desktops? I want something very simple - nothing really busy or complicated. Also I really like just black and white desktops like the ones that come from Tiger. Or maybe like a still shot of the flurry screensaver would be cool. Something along those lines. Any suggestions? (And it needs to be at least 1920 x 1200). Thanks.

    Edit: Changed the title of the post to specify black and white desktops.

    I really like the Green Tea one but I wish it could be like B&W making the stream a light gray-ish color. Could that be altered easily in Photoshop?

    Photoshop has a Black and White tool. I just don't have it.

    use Preview. download the image, open in Preview, choose Tools > Adjust Color, then slide the Saturation tab all the way to the left and you'll have it in b/w. save and import to iPhoto or wherever you keep your desktop pics.

    I boosted the contrast to +100 in Photoshop - didn't look right any other way
