Change Notes Background

You can change the background of the Notes app with a little hacking. It is just an image file found inside the application. Go to the Notes app in your Applications folder, Control+click it and select Show Package Contents. Then Look in Contents, Resources for the paper.tiff file. I’d save a copy of that file, just in case you want to switch back. Then edit it in an image editing app like Photoshop or Pixelmator. Make sure you save it using the same tiff format.

    I did not know that… and I really don’t like the yellow notepad background. Can i use any file as long as it’s a tiff? Am I understanding that correctly?

      I would make sure it is the same size as the default one. That’s why it is best to simply edit it. Remember to save a copy of the original just in case.
