Mountain Lion Wallpaper? #1

I know this is going to be offbeat, but I upgraded to Mountain Lion yesterday and everything went smooth, the install even upgraded Aperture to 3.3.2, which I thought was a little strange, I purposely was holding off until I upgraded the OS. All went well, again, except…

I noticed that I didn't get a fancy desktop wallpaper of a Mountain Lion, like had been available like the other releases (Snow Leopard, Lion).

Anybody else notice that, or am I all washed up?

Same happened for me, I had wallpaper set to custom image though in lion, when mountain lion upgraded it kept the custom image.

I then went to desktop in the system preferences and all the mountain lion wallpaper was there for choosing though.

I am in the midst of re-installing mountain lion from a fresh. Nothing has gone wrong with it, I just had nothing to do this afternoon.

Mark, I have just upgraded to ML from SL via a download at the Apple store. Like you I was expecting some ML wallpaper but, alas, there doesn’t seem to be any!

I believe, though I’m not 100% positive, but if you have a custom wallpaper and simply do an upgrade OS X will keep the custom wallpaper, but if it’s the default version it will change to the new one. (This is because of the fact that the file for the default wallpaper is actually named Default Desktop.jpg, or something like that. :P)

Okay, I thought that something was wrong, I assumed (incorrectly) that Apple would have put a great wallpaper with a Mountain Lion on it, like they have done for earlier versions.

Since nobody else is seeing them, I’m okay with that. The zebras and the elephant are both great wallpapers.
