    I don't think so. . .But is it really that annoying to hit one button? o_o

    That said, I'm sure someone has some (non-obvious) fix.

    If you're on the desktop pane and you then quit system preferences, then re-launch it, what pane appears when you go to desktop & screen saver?

    For me it opens on the pane I viewed last time.

    right click (or command click) the desktop and select "change desktop background"

    Or use iPhoto to do it.

    OR

    use JustLooking - an OS X Image Viewer. It can scroll through images, and also set them as a background. It plays animated gifs, and doesn't crash trying to open certain images like Xee does.

    I like it. sometimes you'll have to go into sys preferences to change the style it is in (stretch, fill, tile, etc..)
