    When I set a background picture for a folder (View > Show View Options > Background) it shows fine until I scroll down the folder where the picture stops and it returns to the white (or whatever) background color. Is there any way to make the image repeat when you scroll down? Or to fix it as a background as you can on web pages?

    Dont have my hopes up for this, lol, but figured if anyone would know it would be someone here :)

    Nope. The best you could do is to edit a single image in Photoshop to repeat multiple times. Finder background images are mostly there to allow application DMGs/disks to provide a slick installer-type experience. For example, Adium's DMG looks like this:

    Ah yeah, I hadn't thought of Photoshop. Will probably work with the image I'm after too. Shame you can't do it through the OS, thanks for the reply.
