Desktop Picture Collections
Authored by: juz10mac on Nov 10, '04 06:32:40PM
I just want to add that, with a few modifications, my hint can be used create other custom desktop image collections other than Cosmos, Forest and Beach.

Just add your own identifier and path to the Collections.plist file and link that identifier to a title in the Collections.strings file. (see my hint above for the paths to these files)

Example (for Collections.plist):


   ,{
         identifier = myidentifier;
         path = "[path to pictures folder goes here]";
         showScalingPopUp = NO;
    }
Example (Collections.strings):

	myidentifier = "My Pictures";
Note: there should not be any brackets in the path. I put them there to separate out my comment. And you can title it anything, you don't have to use "My Pictures" (likewise the identifier, just make sure it is the same in both files).

That's it. After modifying those two files, open your Desktop & Screen Saver preference pane, and you should now see your collection to the left in the Desktop tab.
