How to access hidden wallpapers in OS X Mountain Lion
Courtesy of OS X Daily, here’s a fantastic OS X Mountain Lion tip which shows you how you can access a collection of over 40 hidden wallpapers, including some stunning high resolution aerial photographs, by following a few simple steps.
The wallpapers are actually part of Mountain Lion’s slide show screen savers, and are located deep within the system library.
Here’s how to access them:
1. From the Finder press Command+Shift+G, and copy and paste the path below into the “Go to folder” dialog that appears.
