Hi,
I'd like to add some additional photos to the "Cosmos" screen saver file that came with my MacBook Pro but I can't find this file through Finder in order to add my photos.
Has anyone any idea if it's possible, and if so, how ?
Thanks.

Macbook Pro 17", Mac OS X (10.5.2)

I’m not sure if it’s possible but the screen saver is at

HD/ System / Library / Screensavers

You’ll need to Right click/ Show Package Contents to access the Resources folder, and, as you’re mucking around in the System Folder you’ll need to Authenticate along the way.

Regards

Used to work, as in the past I added a batch of my own stuff to the Cosmos saver. As I recall I also edited some file that was there to list my additions (that might have been in Panther), Didn't see such a file in the Leopard Cosmos saver, so what I did was just rename my own astro photos to the same thing that was already there, then dragged my files into the Resources folder replacing what was there with mine. I just added some more, bringing my total up to "Cosmos18" and it still works fine. You'll probably want to repair permissions from Disk Utility afterwards.
