    when you right click a picture, I'm aware of an option to "save image as" and "use image as desktop picture", but i'm not familiar with an option to "save image as desktop wallpaper"... are you sure that's the correct wording of the option?

    It saves it to as your desktop wallpaper, wherever that file resides. Exactly like it says. Seems pretty much common sense to me.

    I would think he would be better off asking where the desktop photo file is saved. Or, even better, he could search around the filesystem on his Mac himself.

    When you right click and choose "Use Image as Wallpaper" it doesn't get saved anywhere. It's just used as your wallpaper. Once you change the wallpaper you can't go back into system preferences and choose it again. It sort of goes into the clipboard.

    If by "all of you" you mean one person, then yes.
    Way to resurrect an old thread to make a useless comment, by the way.
    Great job.
