Mac OS X Default Wallpaper Collection – 10.1 to 10.4 (Puma, Jaguar, Panther and Tiger)

Hell man, I hope I don’t get a cease and desist for this.

Got really sick of the default “universe/galaxy”-style wallpapers introduced since Leopard, and extracted some old wallpapers from pre-Leopard Mac OS Xes.

Am currently rocking this setup.

Here are all the default Aqua Blue and Aqua Graphite Mac OS X wallpapers from the past. Mac OS X 10.0 Cheetah has the same default wallpapers as Mac OS X 10.1 Puma so it’s meaningless to include those.

Do note, due to the maximum supported screen resolution being quite limited in the earlier Mac OS X releases, the resolution of the earlier wallpapers will be much smaller, and might not look great on current-day screens.

Here goes.
