Linen & Apple Logo Wallpaper from the Mac OS X Lion Login Screen

Linen wallpaper with Apple logo

The latest developer preview of Mac OS X Lion includes a nice looking new login screen that features an Apple logo placed over the ubiquitous Lion linen. If just plain linen wasn’t enough for you, now you can have the Apple logo version as your wallpaper too.

The image was converted from a PDF file, making the ginormous 3995×2500 resolution a little funky, but if you use any mortal sized screen it should look great.

Here is what it looks like on Lion’s login screen:

This apparently comes from somewhere inside the Lion Developer Preview 4 update. Thanks for the submission Peter!

    I’m looking for a way to change the image in Lion. In Snow Leopard I already had replaced the login wallpaper, and no in Lion they have gone for fullscreen bland! Yuck!

    This is pretty smart really, better than just a solid colour yet not too fussy .

    It’s actually not in the system but derived from a screenshot (cmd-shift-3) just before the user login….
