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!

try going into sys/prefs. screensaver. click on desktop, the file you want is there, click on it.

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
