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.

its was working for me at first, actually for quite a long time. One day i couldnt find the little icon where you add the gifs and so after trying for a long time to find it i gave up and deleted deskfun. i tried downloading it again and again, but every time i download it, i still cant find that icon on my screen meaning i couldnt put up any gifs. If anyone knows how to fix this, pleaseeeeee help me out.

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.

Without any updates, this thing still works flawlessly in macOS Sierra 10.12.1 fer christ's sake.

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.

I'm glad you like the app. It would be nice if all pictures would be selected at once and closed at once. I'm not sure I understand what you want. Could you please clarify?

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.

What system version? I tested on 10.3.9 and 10.4.1. Could you send me the crash log, please?

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.

The placement is remembered. If this is not working for you, I'd like to know more details. Please contact me via email.
