Mac OS X Lion Default Wallpaper – Galaxy of Andromeda Space Wallpaper from WWDC

Mac OS X Lion Galaxy Andromeda Wallpaper

Apple has a special knack for picking fantastic looking desktop pictures… and I know I wasn’t the only one drooling over the newest Mac OS X Lion space wallpaper shown throughout the WWDC 2011 keynote.

This one is fresh out of WWDC & Lion Developer Preview 4 and shows the gorgeous Andromeda Galaxy, and, not surprisingly it looks stunning on any Mac display.

So, if you want to get the beautiful galaxy wallpaper from OS X Lion on your Mac (or PC) or iOS device, you’re in the right place. The full sized picture is 3200 x 2000 pixels, so it’s quite large and looks great on nearly any display.

Load the picture into your web browser, and if you’re in Safari you can set the background wallpaper picture directly from there on a Mac. Nice and easy, and looks fantastic.

  3. […] The other great thing about open_ports is that the Mac OS X version is built to be used in GeekTool, so you can display the output on your Mac desktop. If you’re going to use it through GeekTool, I would suggest using a more plain background picture otherwise the text is hard to read, this is how it looks against the OS X Lion Galaxy wallpaper. […]
