I currently have my wallpaper set to the community wallpaper for Ubuntu 12.04 that changes throughout the day. I really like the current image that's on there. Is there somewhere that I can go to download the wallpaper to save for later?

they are already in your PC ;) Check in /usr/share/backgrounds

They should all be located in /usr/share/wallpapers. You can investigate the folder and search for whichever wallpaper you desire, and then copy it to somewhere in your home folder for later. Or, you can remember where the file is located and set it as the wallpaper image file.
