    Has someone been able to successfully load a background image in terminal? I know you were able to in Tiger... and apparently there is a way to do it in 10.6 with the help of a .term file. Has anyone had success with this? Could someone send me a default .term file?

    Yes you can! Here is a sample:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    	<key>WindowSettings</key>
    	<array>
    		<dict>
    			<key>BackgroundImagePath</key>
    			<string>/Users/celtboy/Pictures/WorldMap.jpg</string>
    			<key>Columns</key>
    			<string>80</string>
    			<key>Rows</key>
    			<string>25</string>
    		</dict>
    	</array>
    </dict>
    </plist>
    
    Copy that into a file. Call it 'new.term' and then double-click on it. Feel free to adjust text colors and such through the preferences, then Save As Default!

    Note that if you export the settings, the app will convert your settings into *DATA*
