HOW TO: Access OS X Mavericks’ Hidden Wallpapers



With OS X Mountain Lion, Apple introduced a series of beautiful new screen savers which, with a little bit of digging, you could also use as wallpapers – by uncovering the hi-res images used by those screen savers. Well, it turns out you can do the same thing in OS X Mavericks.

Jump over the break to learn how to do it…

1. Open a Finder window, press Command+Shift+G and point it to /Library/Screen Savers/Default Collections/
