Your own dynamic desktop
Build an ever-changing desktop
Add your photo folders
Create folders in the Pictures folder and copy photographs to them so they can be used as desktop images. Then click the ‘+’ button below and select the folder to add it to the list.
Ever-changing desktop image
Tick the box, then go to ‘Change picture every’ and select a time like ‘Every 30 minutes’ or ‘Every hour’. You don’t need to wait an hour to see if it is working – set it to ‘5 seconds’ to test it.
Desktop wallpaper options
Photographs may not be the same resolution or aspect ratio of the screen, so this menu lets you choose how to deal with them. Fill Screen is a good choice, but click the menu for more.
To create an effect like the macos dynamic desktop that changes over time, you will need to take several photos throughout the day. We faked it by using Preview to darken and lighten an image.
