We're shortlisting images as we speak but are still waiting on some contributions from people - the high res images always take a little while to come in. This time they're taking longer than expected. I'll upload what we have as soon as I have it.

Also, one image may not be the property of the person who has uploaded so I'll validate that before we add it here.

The wallpapers chosen are really dull. 3 wallpapers of winters? why? why no bright, warm, sunny pictures?

Would it be possible to include one with a Tahr? Why? Because nobody seems to know what the process is for changing this:

https://help.ubuntu.com/13.10/ubuntu-help/figures/ubuntu-quantal.jpg (which hasn't been changed for few cycles now)

to a relevant graphic for the current cycle. The thought for this cycle, and as suggested by the install slide show person, was to take a related graphic from the wallpapers (The slide show took from /usr/share/backgrounds/Saucy_Salamander_Abstract_by_José_Vera_alcivar.jpg ) last cycle. I was thinking of the attached (at 250 X 200 pixels) for this cycle for the desktop help docs, but need to know it is O.K. to do so, in terms of rights.

We've had to make a last minute edit. There are 2 images, 1 to replace and 1 where we have the permission of the actual image creator. I've attached them. Thanks!
