    Hi Everyone,
    I have been wondering how Apple got the Nebula backgrounds (the ones in Leopard and Snow Leopard) and by that I mean how were they made and just generally how they got them. This may sound really noobish or silly but I am just curious and I find this stuff interesting (nerd, I know). So if you could help it would be much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    King Mook Mook

    P.S. Here are the backgrounds if you did not know about them: Leopard: http://www.1stclasswallpapers.com/backgrounds/computer_and_internet/image/mac_os_x_leopard_space.jpg

    I don't think they're images of real celestial objects, but they do seem inspired by a nebula.
