iCloud Beta Wallpaper

Want the iCloud.com beta background image as your desktop wallpaper? I did too, so I grabbed the background image file from iCloud’s springboard, tiled it, and put a similar shadow on it with Photoshop. The result is this 2000×1080 PNG file, ready to be set as your desktop background

Click here or the image above for the full 2000×1080 JPG version

(Here’s a whopping 2560×1394 version too) – thanks TK!

It also looks great as a standard wallpaper, Terminal background, or as a replacement for Dashboards background in Mac OS X Lion. Here’s how it looks on a Mac OS X desktop:

If you want to try making your own, or you want the t-shirt pattern without the shadow, this is the 256×256 tiling texture image that Apple uses on iCloud.com, which is then given a giant box shadow to render the background:

    On a side note, one thing intrigues me: how did you get the inverted color menu bar? I’ve got a dark wallpaper as well but my menu bar is solid black on grey.
