DeskFun has been around a long time. I've used it over the years to put image reminders, etc. embedded into my desktop without a bunch of overhead.

It's always been rock solid stable and doesn't bog down your computer at all.

It might be nice if it had a few more features like running QuickTime movies or something, but if that made it have more overhead in general it might not be worth it I guess.

This is free, but it's nice to shoot the developer some money on paypal on the furrysoft website if you like this.

Do I really need or want a picture frame with the software logo on my desktop? No, I do not.

The authors decision to keep one frame with his logo visible on my desktop at all times pretty much ruins this software. (It may be possible to remove or hide the frame with the logo, but it was not immediately obvious how to do that).

Right-Click, select hide drop window. Pretty much how I would expect it to work or you could have RTFM.

Excelllent Application! It would be nice if all pictures would be selected at once and closed at once. As for the drop, it would also be nice if several pictures could be dropped at once instead of one at a time.

Was running great until this morning. Booted up and it said it was expired. Grabbed the latest 0.5.1 and I still get the expired warning. Will there be a new drop soon? I really enjoy this app!

I found a problem in 0.5 that would only occur if DeskFun hasn't been installed ob that particular machine before.
Since I replaced the old archive, please check the version number before you download it again; if it's already 0.5.1 you are fine.

crashes with this error
"DeskFun.app/Contents/MacOS/DeskFun NSLookupSymbolInImage() dynamic library: /System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/HIToolbox.framework/Versions/A/HIToolbox does not define symbol: __GetPreviousMenu"

(don't worry though, didn't send it to Apple ;-)

Nice app.
It might be nice to have the placement of pictures remembered after a restart, rather than having to put them back manually every time.

I filled up a bunch of pictures on my desktop using desk fun on my iBook G4 and left my computer on for an hour or so. When I came back to my room... I noticed the fan was on, which I had never heard. I think Xresource Graph noted the temp at 143F on the CPUBottumSide, which I have never exceeded 120F with the thing on my lap. I quit Desk Fun and the fan turned off and the temp dropped to normal. I don't know if this is a thing of alarm, but it sure seemed to make my little iBook struggle.
