Choice is great and now you have 43 free HD wallpapers for your Mountain Lion Mac — dress up your desktop…

If you are running OS X Mountain Lion, although you might not know it, there is a collection of more than two score free HD wallpapers (desktop pictures) already on your Mac — no need to search the web or download. Here’s how to find and make use of them.

On your Mountain Lion Mac, go to the Finder and press Command + Shift + G (Go > Go to Folder) and enter the following location string:

/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.Framework/Versions/A/Resources/Default Collections/

Your Mac will take you to the following location.

Now, to have ready access to these four folders — 1-National Geographic, 2-Aerial, 3-Cosmos, 4-Nature Patterns — and the 43 images therein, go to System Preferences > Desktop. You can add these folders one at a time by dragging them into the Desktop sidebar (image above).

You can also add these folders of free HD wallpapers to System Preferences > Desktop by pressing the “+” (bottom of the sidebar) and, starting from Macintosh HD, navigating to the nested folders. Alternately, you can drag the folders from their hidden position to the Desktop or Pictures folder.

Choice is great and now you have 43 new (and free) ways to dress up your desktop…

What’s your take?
