Good photo-displaying dashboard widget?

Hey, does anyone know a good dashboard widget for simply displaying a picture or photo. I want to see my girlfriend at the touch of the F12 key!

A quick search on the Apple downloads website didn't reveal anything...

Cheers..

There's another one called Photo which you can set to choose from an iPhoto library so you get a different pic of your girlfriend each time.

Just make a photo album of all your gf's photos in iPhoto and set your desktop to use photos from that album for the background wallpaper. You can make it pick a photo randomly from that album every 5 minutes so that your desktop photo changes often.

Thanks for the replies. I am aware of the lovely rotating desktop feature of Mac OS X. I use it already, although I prefer to put landscape shots as my background picture as portraits are too much of a distraction! (And often dark in colour).

Widgets not working in OSX 10.8.2 Mountain Lion?

Lovely widgets but I couldn't figure out why they weren't responding to the images I was dropping on them.

If anyone else encounters this problem I found opening the image in the browser first then dragging it from there gets these widgets behaving the way they should.

I also found modernmoments to be the best one!

A 7 year old thread bought back to life. That must be something of a record.
