    Where you can have your album artwork as your desktop and it shows like 50 album covers and every couple seconds a few of them flip to another. I think it's a widget. Can anyone tell me? Thanks

    It is a screen saver option... is that what you are looking for?

    System Preference -> Desktop & Screen Saver -> Screen Saver ->iTunes Artwork

    It sounds like the iTunes Artwork screen saver.

    It should be a part of your system
    Are your running Leopard?

    I listed the path above

    Edit: Ah, I see in your signature you are not running Leopard... sorry

    It's definitely in 10.4, I've been using it for ages.

    I remember downloading it online and having it on my computer before but can't find it. Don't know where to download it again.

    Found it but it's a screensaver but I want it as wallpaper. I've had it before but forget where I found it.

    You can easily make any screensaver on your Mac into a wallpaper. Open System Preferences, Desktop&Screensaver. Choose the screensaver tab and select the screensaver you want to make a wallpaper. Hold down "Command and Shift" then press the Test button to activate the screensaver. While still holding down Command and Shift press the number "3" key. A screenshot will be taken of the screensaver and put to the desktop. Move it to the pictures folder. Now you can choose it as a wallpaper in System Preferences.
    Personally I think the iTunes album art makes a horrible wallpaper because you can't see the desktop icons or the dock very well.

    Use an app called WallSaver, to set a screensaver as your wallpaper.
