"Just what I was looking for"
This package does exactly what it says it does: it iterates over a collection of images in a directory and swaps out the desktop wallpaper. It's easy to configure and there are many options.
A configurable transition effect (such as a fade) between images would be a nice enhancement.
I prefer to assemble my own desktop backgrounds culled from my favorite artists, astronomy, family photos, etc. I have little interest in commercial backgrounds. This software allows me to throw all my collected and created backgrounds into a directory (with subdirectories if I like) and walk through them at a regular interval. There are many ways to stretch, tile, and/or enhance the images, filter by date or name, and the periodicity can be set in seconds, minutes, or hours.
The main user interface is bare-bones simple, and the preferences dialog box provides plenty of tweaks while remaining very easy to use.
This application is perfect if you want a straightforward utility that does exactly what you expect it to do without any fluff and bother.
