    A guy was showing me an old iMac G3 recently - it was a pink or grape colour. On booting, the desktop showed a wallpaper with bubbles (I think?) on it. The wallpaper was the exact same colour as the iMac's enclosure. He said this was one of the clever features of these G3s, that the wallpaper always matched the enclosure.

    Where can I download this wallpaper in Strawberry, Grape, Lime, Tangerine, Indigo or other Apple-released retro iMac colours?

    I've spent a couple of hours searching in vain online. :( Can anyone help...?

    They come on the Mac OS 9.x iMac CD's. If you can find one of those, you're set.

    If I find a system with OS 9 installed, will it have the full set on that machine with every colour, or just the colour wallpaper relevant to that machine?

    Surely they must be online somewhere too, but I've done countless searches with OS 8, 9, Classic etc in the search queries - without success.

    Thanks for your help.

    I have the following images at 800x600:

    Tangerine Fusion
    Tangerine Melt
    Blueberry Union
    Lime Horizon
    Extra Green
    Quantum Foam
    Strawberry Baby
    Indigo Foam
    Grape Mission
    Lime Sharp
    Grape Gravity
    Ruby Foam
    Strawberry Parabola
    Blueberry Oxygen
    Sage Foam

    Can your email take a 2.6 MB zip file? Or perhaps there's a good place to host it. I have the rest of the desktops that came with OS 9 too if you're interested.

    Oh yes, my partner had the strawberry iMac G3 DV when I met her - with matching strawberry wallpaper, strawberry imac keyboard, and strawberry hockey puck mouse :)

    We still have it upstairs, and I have the entire wallpaper collection on my PB G4. I have 22 apple iMac colour wallpapers - rather more than you - and the apple UFO set, and a few others. I'm happy to upload them somewhere if you post or PM me with instructions.

    Hi cells and RedTomato

    I've PM-ed you both. Grateful for your assistance. Thanks to the other contributors on this thread too. Seems like I'm not the only one who appreciates these.

    If someone e-mails them to me, I can upload them to my webspace for everyone! I have lots of bandwidth to burn!

    I'm also looking for these specifically the tangerine one with the 'pills' in it.

    The link posted above isn't valid anymore.

    Anyone?
