Retrieve Desktop Background Images

Ever want to use your Mac’s desktop background in a project? You don’t have to dig around in system files to find it. Just go to System Preferences, Desktop & Screen Saver, Desktop and you’ll see the drop zone at the top left with the current desktop background, AKA wallpaper. You can drag any image into that to make it your Desktop background, but you can also drag the current background out to the Finder to get that image as a file. Choose any Apple Desktop image and whatever is in that drop zone can be dragged out to the Finder.
