Great -another icon to take up space on your desktop, in your dock,.....

I suppose anything to take the pain and suffering out of having to open System Preferences is a good thing.

Does it work with multiple monitors?

No, apparently not. Would be neat if it did; maybe a drop to it would bring up a selection pane, or holding down a key while dragging (1 = main monitor, 2 = secondary, etc) or something like that.

Otherwise, works as advertised.

Fantastic! Makes setting the desktop so easy. Does one thing and does it well. Some people will always want things to do more and more, but I say keep it simple.

Excellent work, one of my favourite finds this year!

Nice. Simply drop a jpeg or similar onto its dock icon and it changes the desktop picture for you, you don't even need the program to be open.

I tried it but I don't know how often I would use it. But speaking of deaktops...I have a better idea for you or someone to pursue... Rather than adding more, I've been taking old smaller ones out. I have about 2000 backgrounds that I've collected over the years. Sometimes I start up and I don't really like the one that was randomly picked from the Desktop Pictures folder... in OS 9's desktop prefs it told you which file was being displayed, but not in OS X. How about a menu item that would pull down to reveal the name of the current background, the option to reveal it in the finder, the option to randomly pick a new image and on top of that...the functionality of DeskDecal that would be "Add new image to Desktop Pictures Folder and Set" And if it could do this for each monitor, that would be nice. I'm just saying... it would be helpful. If it could also replace the functionality of the Display menu item that one could be turned off.

Hmmm... I don't really understand the point of the program. Also... right after you drop the picture it closes. Why? What if I want to try several pictures? Do I have to open the program again and again? (Nice icon though)
