In my travels today i found a great post from http://www.webupd8.org Its a set up scripts for linux that will download all the Wallpapers from Nation Geopraphic.

Well, it was Linux only and didn’t work nativity on my Mac, so i hacked it up and made it Mac Friendly

Original Post: http://www.webupd8.org/2009/11/automatically-download-all-wallpapers.html

My Scripts:
2008 Wallpapers : http://bjcpgd.cias.rit.edu/natgeo/natgeo2008.sh
2009 Wallpapers : http://bjcpgd.cias.rit.edu/natgeo/natgeo2009.sh

To run these scripts. download them to a folder of your choice, remember all the wallpapers will download to that directory.

Open up the Terminal.app from Applications > Utilities

Work your way into your directory structure and you will have to:
chmod +x /natgeo2008.sh
and
chmod +x /natgeo2009.sh

When you are ready just
./natgeo2008.sh

All credit for this script goes back to original Author, i’m just the guy who ported it to Mac.
