Wow, what a way cool program! Downloaded it, tried it about 5 minutes, and was immediately sold.

I never used the previous version, but I have to say that new interface is simply brilliant....didn't need to use help once, just all made sense and worked great. The special effects, relying on Core Image, are really outstanding. The program is just plain *fun* to use, and within minutes I created some marvelous new desktops. (The screensaver is great eye candy, too.)

For a desktop image nut like me, this is a must have...and the price is very reasonable for all the ease of use and features. Going to buy it today.

I used to love showing my friends the various pics on my Mac thanks to PD. Then late last year it went completely unusable. I missed it, but I just turned to Adobe Illustrator and made jpg desktops. Last month an update came out and I thought great that PD is being supported again. Well the short version of the disaster is that it either all 4 cpus on my quad G5 pegged, G5 crashed, PD beach balled and had to force quit or PD just suddenly quit after starting.

When I try to add a new photo all I see is a spinning beachball..... Can't use it at all. Wish it would work, could be a nice app.

I want to delete/remove the Photo Desktop application.

It won't let me because it says the program is open, even after I force quit.

Even after you quit the editor, Photo Desktop is still running. The only way I have found to quit it is to go to Activity Monitor, find the process called "Photo Desktop," and quit it. Then you should be able to delete/move to trash/do whatever you want with the Photo Desktop app.

The editor stops immediately after starting it. Could be a nice app.
I run Mac OS 10.4.9.
