Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi- I have done hours of work on OSM and only recently realized I can change the background map...so I did.

And I cannot seem to find the aerial image one that I automatically started with...Can anyone tell me what it is called and how to find it.

Looks like you were using Potlatch 1 (i.e., you clicked on the edit tab). In which case, you were probably using the Yahoo imagery.

Open the options box you were using to change the background. Yahoo is not in the list with the others, but has its own radio button below the list. Select the "Yahoo" radio button and then "ok".
