A fast and simple way to set a desktop background image
Authored by: tedw on May 23, '09 02:29:26PM
actually, this is quick applescript job:
property DPFolder : (path to desktop pictures folder) as text
-- ...or insert a path to the folder you use for desktop pictures

tell application "Finder"
	set theSelectedImages to the selection
	set theSelectedImages to move theSelectedImages to folder DPFolder
	set theImage to item 1 of theSelectedImages as alias
end tell
tell application "System Events"
	set picture of every desktop to theImage
end tell
This gets the selected images, moves them to the desktop pictures folder (so that they will later appear if you're cycling through the pictures there) and sets the first one on the list as the desktop picture for every monitor.
