    Hi,

    I recently (well, a few months ago) reinstalled OS X from scratch and have only just realised that I've lost a few of the older wallpapers included in OS X.

    These weren't just in the 'Desktop Pictures' folder, but split up into things like Abstract, Nature, Aqua, Black and White, etc.

    Not quite sure when they were removed, but would be really grateful if anyone could upload a zip of them all somewhere.

    Thanks!

    I wanted to thank you too. I love these and they're hard to find scattered across the web.

    With regards to the OS 9 wallpapers; there's some in the Apple Support thread here(external link to mediafire): https://discussions.apple.com/thread/1633379?start=0&tstart=0

    Also, you could see if the archive uploaded in this thread http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php?topic=2746.0 could be revived!? (Requires a profile - perhaps someone on MacRumors is already a member there in order to request a reupload?)

    Also, Louie Mantia's Reserve includes a Finder pattern that could take some back: http://reserve.louie.land/Wallpapers/Finder/

    The wallpapers from OS 9 era is not 1920x1080 but a measly 1024x768(top of the pops back then)
