Cheap and RAM-frugal desktop hiding
Authored by: mahakali on Apr 19, '07 02:23:33AM

Agree. If you want to hide your desktop picture and set it to display a certain color, customize your current setting's desktop background color then use this script:

tell application "Finder"
	set desktop picture to alias "path:to:transparent.png"
	quit
end tell

To revert

tell application "Finder"
	activate
	set desktop picture to alias "path:to:original:desktop:picture"
end tell

Of course, you need to have a transparent icon (png or gif).
