DeskPictRotator Pro is an application for periodic changing of the desktop picture. It offers these features:

  • A sortable list of pictures, including thumbnail representations, file name, and screen positioning (such as centered or tiled).
  • Screen positioning set on a picture basis.
  • Drag-and-drop support for adding pictures (files or folders) to the list.
  • Simple picture list management.
  • Selectable change interval, in seconds, minutes, hours, or days.
  • Scheduling features, where you can choose the time during which pictures will be changed, with the option to treat weekends differently from weekdays.
  • Change the pictures randomly or in order (based on sort order in the main window).
  • Ability to change the picture immediately, or to set a specific picture.
  • Each picture can be located on any disk or in any folder.
  • Flexible picture preview generation, either automatic or manual.
  • Ability to stop changing pictures without quitting the program.
  • Internet link to find desktop pictures.
  • Multiple-monitor support (limited).
  • Balloon Help.

System Requirements

  • MacOS 8.5 or higher (but not MacOS X).
  • Many desktop pictures look best on a screen with thousands of colors or more, so a system capable of at least 16-bit color is recommended. Let your taste be your guide!
  • Approximately 2.5 MB of free application memory. Because DeskPictRotator Pro uses the Appearance control panel to set pictures, the required RAM includes memory for both applications.
  • Approximately 2 MB of free disk space, plus space for your desktop pictures.
  • Some pictures that you like!
