10.4: Set desktop picture via Automator
Authored by: mpanighetti on Jul 28, '06 02:47:38PM

I use this handy Automator action to cycle out pictures from my iPhoto library as desktop images. Just use the "Find Photos in iPhoto" action, select an album of your choice (I use a Smart Album of recent photos, combining the last four rolls with the last month's worth of pictures), then the "Set The Desktop Picture" action. It will select the first picture in the list, so I organize it by Rating in Descending order. For the final touch, I made a weekly iCal entry that runs the program, so every Saturday my desktop image is rotated (assuming I took any pictures in the last week).
