    Not that long ago, I found the folder that contains all the wallpaper backgrounds - I think it was somewhere in the Library? Anyways, after I found it, I added some of my own wallpaper images to the folder, so that they showed up in the pre-set folders of Nature, Plants, Abstract, etc, and not in my New Desktop Wallpapers folder. Well, now I have some new backgrounds I want to add, and for the life of me I can't remember where I found that folder before! I looked in the Library and the closest thing there is the Screensavers folder, but no wallpapers. Anyone know where this is located??

    /Library/Desktop Pictures

    it's your root directory library not your user library.

    EDIT: Beaten to it. Anyway why not just add picture folders instead of messing with the library?

    Yeah, I definitely looked in both libraries and it's not there... weird. Probably from me messing with it!
    It's no big deal, I already added another folder, but I just thought it was neat having them all organized like that... ohwell!
