    I like some of the 3 out of the 10 nature images that come preinstalled as wallpapers in OSX. I want to my desktop to switch between these 3 images every 10minutes or so. Is there a way to make it switch between only the 3 that I like? Because when I check "change picture" there is no option to choose which pictures I would like my desktop to rotate. Thanks.

    If you put them in their own folde rand then select that folder, you will get those three and only those three to cycle, I do believe.

    Make a separate folder containing the images you want (I put mine in ~/Pictures/Desktops), and choose that folder. You should COPY the pictures you want from /Library/Desktop Pictures (that's Hard Drive Name -> Library folder -> Dektop Pictures folder) into your chosen folder.
