Radiance, originally known as Mare Imbrium and Apennine Mountains, is a wallpaper included in Windows XP, licensed from Corbis. It was taken by Roger Ressmeyer, who also took Stonehenge and Windows 2000's Solar Eclipse. It is a vertical shot of the moon, although in XP it has been flipped to become horizontal. Included in the same series on Corbis were other moon and space-related shots, the former of which appear to be more golden than the one used in XP. The series was transferred to Getty Images when VCG acquired Corbis in 2016, but became a restricted asset in early 2020 when Getty discontinued rights-managed licensing in favor of royalty free licensing; they were not converted to royalty free, so they were taken down in late 2020.
