    Pretty cool little application! I like the growl integration! :)

    One Question: Today's picture was downloaded and saved to my macbook. The option "Set Wallpaper" is checked but the wallpaper doesn't change to the national geographic photo. What have I done wrong?

    Thanks!

    well, not sure, it should be stetted as wallpaper if you checked the option.
    please notice that the app now just support main desktop, and are you running it as admin account?

    Yep, adding it manually works without problems.

    Okay, I will check that later. Probably I tried to set it on a secondary desktop..

    So if i set it to only display HD photo's, does it only download the HD ones?

    Also do i have to set it to display new screensaver once a day or does it do it automatically?

    Not working for me

    I have just downloaded v 2.8 and it isn't working for me.

    I cannot get the wallpaper to change ?

    I have tried deleting wallpaper file, and re-updating, file get correctly downloaded, but is not setting the wallpaper.


    Also, when I quit and restart the app
    - Preference - auto update is being lost / unset
    - Preference / Wallpaper / HD Photo is also lost / unset.

    When I installed the app, I simply unpacked and placed in Applications directory.

    I tried the other suggestions in the previous posts, but cannot get wallpaper to change ?

    What am I doing wrong?

    Many thanks

    Mark
