    Unhappy how to get the earth pic of the desktop
    Hi,

    I have a earth pic as my MacBook desktop and one friend like it very much. So i wanna to get this pic file and send it to my friend.

    The problem is I could find this pic file in the system and could not save it and send it in a email.

    Would anybody tell where is this pic file and how to get it as a jpg file?

    Thanks!

    Specs:
    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OSX10.11, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OSX10.11 , iPhone 3GS Note 8!
    Is the earth desktop pic the stock one that comes with OSX?

    If so, it's in Library/ (The Library folder when you first open the hard drive and not the one in users/username) Desktop Pictures/Nature.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15", 3.06 GHz, 4GB DDR3 SDRAM, 500GB SATA hard drive, 8gb iPhone
    Another way is to do the following:

    hold down the following keys:
    shift+command+4 and then spacebar (command key is the one with apple logo)

    Your cursor will change into a camera icon.. click your desktop to take the picture. This will be saved to your desktop automatically.

    Now open it in preview and choose file>save as.. (make sure to select JPEG!)

    Next step is to simply drag the file from where you saved it to your email and send it to your friend.

    I'm not sure you should be distributing that picture.
