Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Space Wallpaper

You guys asked for it, so here it is; the awesome space galaxy wallpaper from Versions in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Developer Preview.

Click here or the image above for the full 1920×1080 version.

If you’re wondering, the original filename is “NSRevisionsBackground.png” and it’s from the Versions package, unlike the Mac OS X 10.7 default Fuji Mountain wallpaper that we posted yesterday which is found in /Library/Desktop Pictures/ in the Developer Preview.

The galaxy wallpaper is the background image in Versions, the new document versioning utility included in Lion that behaves much like a Time Machine for individual documents. You can see it in this screenshot from Apple’s Lion preview:

As usual, Apple finds gorgeous wallpapers for your Mac OS X desktop background. Apparently there aren’t many different pictures included in Lion yet (even the lotus flower from the “Back to the Mac” preview is said to not be included) but we’ll let you know as more become available.

Thanks again S.E.!

Update: Many of you are looking for the new Andromeda Galaxy wallpaper from Mac OS X Lion, you can download that too:

    Is there a way to add the “browse versions” space backdrop as a screensaver, but not as a still picture screensaver but as a moving screensaver?
