"Totally Awesome Convenience!"

This little app rocks! I love how I can set up folder sets and instantly switch between them via the menu -- way faster than control-clicking the desktop, which only invokes the System Preferences Desktop and Screensaver module.

I love the View Pictures review mode, when I want to quickly set a favorite image from a folder set, and I love how I can instantly change how and where the image is placed, and how often the picture changes, from every five seconds to however long you wish to customize.

Picture Switcher is a little jewel, and well worth a little menu bar space.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.0.3
New Features
  • Added a new preference setting, "Display Images in Sub Folders" which will display all images, including those in sub folders, from the top-level folder in the picture menu from which the current image is selected.
  • Added a new preference setting, "Always Tile Small Images" which will tile images that are smaller than half the screen's width and height.
  • Added in the ability to create your own collections of images, rather than needing to have the images set out the way you want them in some sort of folder hierarchy. See the Picture Folders panel for creating / editing collections.
  • Added a new button in the preference pane which will allow you to clear the thumbnail image cache used by the Picture Viewer.
  • The orientation of an image is now properly recognized and used when displaying images. Note that you may need to clear the thumbnail image cache before thumbnails for these images are displayed properly in the Picture Viewer.
  • Added in a "No Transition" option to the transition menu, which will immediately change the picture rather than showing a transition while changing the picture.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a bug that could cause Picture Switcher to crash when the desktop picture was changed very rapidly, or (rarely) when the computer was under heavy load.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause Picture Switcher to crash in some rare instances when the picture menu was updating.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the background color to be reset to blue when changing the desktop picture from an outside source.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Picture Switcher to cancel a logout / shutdown.
  • Fixed a bug where moving the sliders in the Effects / Transition Settings panels could lock up Picture Switcher's UI, needing a force quit to get out of it.
  • Fixed a bug where the crash reporter could pop up when no crash had actually occurred.
  • Fixed a bug with the "Check For Updates" feature where it could erroneously tell you that an update was already in progress.
