Developer's Description

SetDTPictureCM is a contextual menu and service utility to set, restore and find the desktop picture. The classic CM also remembers pictures previously set.

In particular it performs the following functions:

  • Sets the desktop picture to the file you control click on in the Finder. The menu item's name is "Set Desktop Picture To"*
  • Locates the current file that is serving as the desktop picture. This menu items always displays. The menu item's name is "Reveal Desktop Picture"
  • 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.

*Limit Point Software is aware that Mac OS X 10.6 has a similar service named "Set Desktop Picture." However not everyone is using 10.6, and moreover, this service performs two other services.
