Petra had brought home an iPad with a rather calm default screen background. Since I like tartan patterns, Edinburgh and the idea of my younger daughter studying there, here is a background for you.

- desktop wallpaper—72dpi 1920 x 1200

here is how
- Find the image you want to use in safari

- Tap to select ‘Brightness & Wallpaper’ option on the left column on settings screen

How to change the desktop wallpaper
- Launch System Preferences by clicking its icon in the Dock, or by selecting ‘System Preferences’ from the Apple menu.
- In the System Preferences window that opens, click the ‘Desktop & Screen Saver’ icon.
- Click the ‘Desktop’ tab.
- In the left-hand pane you’ll see a list of folders that OS X has pre-assigned for use as desktop wallpaper. You should see Apple Images, Nature, Plants, Black & White, Abstracts, and Solid Colors. You may see additional folders, depending on version of OS X you’re using.
- Add a new folder to the list pane.
