    If you do a clean install of Lion, most of the old legacy OS X wallpapers are missing. I figured this is no big deal, since it should be easy to track them all down with a simple Google image search...nope, I was wrong.

    So I thought I'd start this thread for all those who are seeking the original, uncompressed images from previous OS X versions, since that default wallpaper is now missing in Lion.

    I'll start off with a request for the ladybug sitting on a blade of grass, from...Leopard, I think? :D

    Sorry, but what's the OS9 one with the funny-looking greyish stripes?

    Either Quantum Foam or Convergence 10.

    My personal favorite Classic Background was that weird pinkish twilight one.
