Very weak entry into the ever changing desktop picture world.
I really don't see what the developer had in mind when he wrote this ?
What does it add that the finder doesn't already do - and do rather well.

Namely being able to take a folder of wallpapers and change then at a predefine rate.

If this tool handled folders of files rather than just individual ones, then maybe...
But it doesn't even add a thumbnail to the recent/history so you don't what's what.
You can't import a folder of files ( You have to click on each file and then it's stored... )into the CM ?

Needs the capacity for favorite folder sets, image thumbnails... and since Apple made all contextual menu items spring from the bottom into their own sub menu - aren't all CM tools now dead ? It's just such a pain to navigate within them now.

  • Reverts to the last desktop picture. This menu item displays whenever this contextual menu was used to set the desktop picture. The menu item's name is "Reset Desktop Picture"
  • The classic contextual menu keeps track of all files used by itself to set the desktop picture in a submenu labelled "Recent Desktop Pictures" Selecting an item from this submenu will set the desktop picture to that file. So it maintains a history of desktop pictures.


SetDTPictureCM is part of the Limit Point Software "Utilities Bundle." Visit the Utilities home page at: http://www.limit-point.com/Utilities.html for a list of all the software available. Updates are always free, and new products always included.
