    Please! :)

    There's nothing on this MacBook Pro that I can use to make the image but I want to test the LCD for light bleeding.

    Thank you!

    Seashore, make a 1440x900 project, paint bucket it black, save as a... anything, really.

    It doesn't have to be a PNG, it could be a JPEG if you wish.

    Then set it as your background, of which you're obviously aware.

    You could have also found a black image somewhere on the internet regardless of size and tiled it in the wallpaper settings... :)

    You can do it without downloading anything:
    1. Open iTunes
    2. Create a new playlist (File > New Playlist)
    3. View that empty playlist in Cover Flow (View > As Cover Flow)
    4. the Cover Flow area will be black
    5. Use screen capture to grab some of the black and save as a file (⌘-Shift-4)
    6. Open the file with Preview and adjust size to 1440x900 (Tools > Adjust Size (uncheck "Scale proportionately")
    7. Save
    8. Done!

    i opened windows paint and made a black image.... then i remembered i bought pixelmator and never use it i could have done that as well, and specified the resolution not that makes a difference with a pure black image

    Just take a picture with black in it and zoom into that part by pressing control and scrolling in with the trackpad.
