OS X :: Use Image As Desktop - Cannot Find The Image From Where I Have Stored?

Apr 14, 2009

I recently right clicked a picture to set it as my desktop picture but didn't have the foresight to save the picture in case I wanted to change it later. I still have the picture up but I cannot find where the picture is stored so I can save it for later. I checked HD/Library/desktop pictures but no luck. Does anyone know where these pictures are saved?

I have my PowerBook G4 connected to a Hitachi video projector, using a DVI to VGA adapter.

The problem is that the only projected image I can see is that of my Desktop image. It doesn't display the Dock, menus or any windows.

What settings do I need to change?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Restore DMG Image Stored On NTFS Disk?

Apr 10, 2012

My MacBook Pro has OSX Lion on it. I have created a DMG image of my starting volume using Disk Utility. The image was saved on an NTFS formatted external USB disk. I used Paragon NTFS for Mac to activate writing on NTFS partitions. The image was created, tested and it mounted fine. It's size is 105GB. 

I have restarted the system and am accessing Disk Utility from the recovery partition that OSX Lion creates. Disk Utility can see the NTFS disk and I can choose the DMG image as source and the partition on the internal hard disk as a target without problems but when I press the restore button and the Image scan process is going to start I just get an error that says "Unabke to scan Mac-OSX HD. Resource busy". When I try the SCAN BEFORE RESTORE command on Disk Utility on the image I am getting "Unable to scan MAC IMAGE.DMG (Not such file or directory)". 

I have already erased my startup disk and really need to get this image back in place. It is the only backup I have of my data.

Safari :: Drag An Image From A Page In It To The Finder And Have It Be Saved As An Actual Image Instead Of A Webloc?

Apr 16, 2012

Safari used to let me drag an image from a webpage to the finder and have the dragged file be saved as an actual image but now all that's saved is a webloc file.  I want the image saved, not a reference to the image's URL - do I now have to always use "save as" to save it? 

I can understand Safari creating a webloc file if I dragged the site icon from the location bar to the finder, but to make the default behavior for dragging things that are parts of a page (not the page itself) as webloc files seems like a HUGE step backwards for usability. 

Does anyone know if there's, say, a key to hold when dragging to avoid saving a webloc file or a defaults command or something to make Safari revert back to sane draging behavior?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Cannot Upload An Image Because The Image Or The Container Folder Does Not Have Permission

Apr 12, 2012

One software says I cannot upload an image because the image or the container folder does not have permission. Indeed there is one "unknown" in permissions, that I cannot get to a read write no matter how hard I try -- both on the folder, the desktop, and the file (this is all on my laptop)  I've done a repair permission.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Copy Image From Browser To PowerPoint, Get A Link Instead Of Image

May 25, 2012

When a user copies an image from a browser into PowerPoint 2011 he gets text of a link back to the image, not the image itself. But if he copies from a browser into Word he gets the image, and can then copy the image from Word to PowerPoint. Same results with both Firefox and Safari. Behavior is new so I assume it relates to recent software updates but user does not recall accepting any.

Intel Mac :: Can't Find Info Stored On Desktop

Jun 14, 2012

Had a storm with a power flux and mac went down. Started it back the next day. Ran a first aid on the hard drive system first (all icons on desk top worked fine, showed all software installed, all documents, etc.) Everything checked out.

I have an Iomega external hard drive attached to use as back up. When I ran the first aid on that the system froze. I turned the computer off, waited and then rebooted. Everything came on again, but this time, my screen saver was the original one, not the one I use, all the added icons from the desk top bar were missing, back to the original ones loaded at time of purchase, all my documents are missing, as in everything except for my pictures on the hard drive, all the info stored on my desk top, everything GONE. NO sign of where anything went. The system seems to work fine as far as that goes, but there is none of the materials from the past 5 years of use. Can't even find my emails from Apple, nothing. That's all gone as well. Called up Apple support but because the warranty is no longer in effect, will have to pay for service. Am ready to do that if this fails.

MacBook Air :: Mounting CD Image On Desktop?

Feb 23, 2008

Been trying to create a CD image mounted on my Desktop, as to load the program it needs to know that the CD is in the optical drive of the MacBook Air. But the program doesn't actually use the CD, its just verifying that I own a copy. Is there anyway I could start the program without actually having the CD in my drive? Anyway of making the Computer think that the CD is actually present, such as mounting the CD image on the Desktop?

Mac Mini :: All Of The Desktop Icons Have No Image?

Mar 27, 2012

All of the desktop icons have no image on them. We are starting to accumulate quite a few icons and they all look the same (an @ sign) and we have to read what is written underneath which is time consuming. Just wondering if there is a way to add a different photo to the icon?

MacBook :: Desktop Image Doesn't Fit As Well As With Windows?

Dec 18, 2010

Haven't had any success searching for an answer.

I have an aluminum macbook (April 2009) and when I use a picture as a desk top image, even HD resolution pics it never quite fits well as wallpaper. I have tried all options (stretch, full screen, etc).

When I had windows pics would always fit nicely. With my mac its either too stretched and just doesn't fit well

Anyone else have this issue? Am I missing something?

MacBook Pro :: Why Does My Desktop Image Change Back

Sep 28, 2009

If I change my desktop image, it often changes back to its previous setting next time I boot up. And- it doesn't remain constant between graphics cards either. (15" late '08 UMBP)

It changes when I connect external monitors, and it changes when I bring it home from work and boot up.

I just can't wrap my head around it. I have to change it every time I boot up, actually.

OS X Mavericks :: Can No Longer Change Desktop Image

Jun 6, 2014

I go into System Preferences, choose a new photo, close System Preferences, the old photo is still there.  I have rebooted multiple times, closing all programs first, just in case something open is preventing the switch.  I just cant figure this out, I have always been able to change before with no problem.  The ScreenSaver is changeable, by the way, that works fine.

MacBook Pro :: Applications Leaving Disk Image On Desktop?

Aug 28, 2009

I feel stupid for asking this but why do some applications leave a disk image on the desktop after it is installed? you can eject it and it goes away but then reappears every time you launch the program again. I noticed this happens mainly with applications you get off the web such as Google Earth. It is very annoying because I like to keep my desktop clean. So my question is how do you avoid having this disk image appear every time Google Earth launches for example. Is it normal for some programs? or did I install it wrong?

Mac Pro :: Image Inside Distorted When Move Window Around Desktop

Mar 22, 2012

When I move a window around the desktop, the image inside it distorts really badly. I have tried a new graphics card, but still does the same. I have booted up from a different system but still the same. It is a Mac pro 4.1 with a GT120 video card. Took the card to work today and tried it in my mac at work and it worked fine. Brought my video card and hard drive from work and put it into my mac at home and the same thing happened. Any body got any clue to what it is. Really don't feel like forking out for a new Logic board. Also, when I scroll down with the mouse, the text stretches in the window.

Applications :: Software To Find Duplicate Audio And Image Files?

Apr 27, 2009

I am moving over to OSX on my iMac to manage my audio and image files. Right now I have them spread over several external hard drives on my PC. I have found a good program that does a very good job of identifying duplicates in both categories. They are called Audio Comparer and Video Comparer. Right now they only have windows versions. I am also looking at DupGuru Picture and Music editions which just happen to have a version for each platform. There is also Deep which I will try.

Does anyone have any good recommendations for Mac software that can perform these functions on several external hard drives? I do not plan to use iPhoto (Photoshop, Lightroom, and Lightzone) and obviously will be using iTunes but I desperately need to find and delete all the duplicate files before bringing into iTunes. I know iTunes can locate duplicate file, but names of them may be different since they have been in several Windows programs and formats (MP3, Flac, Apple Lossless....)

I could do this on the PC, but if I can avoid purchasing software that I will not use again (PC) versus doing it on the Mac and having the software for later use is my goal.
