    Hi, for my desktop background I have the picture change every 5 seconds. I want to make this faster, but 5 seconds is the fastest on OS X. Is there any app which has more options for this?

    There might be a Terminal command out there to shorten the time.

    Open ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.desktop.plist

    Find the ChangeTime entry and set it to how many seconds you want.

    Note: Set everything else using System Preferences first and choose every 5 seconds in System Prefs to make sure everything else is set. Then you can just change the 5 to whatever you want

    If you don't mind me asking, I'm just curious, why would you want to do this?
