One of my friends asked me how to make their wallpaper automatically change, i had no idea so i said i could make a .gif of a lot of different images. they said that they wanted it to change every time they logged onto XP (like a random one) or to someone have a slideshow of the images as their background.

i have no idea how to do this, but im pretty sure it could be done...

Google it?

I'm fairly sure i've seen software to do that, but cant remember what its called.

Also, isnt there a facility in XP to have a slideshow of the "my pictures" folder for the desktop? or is that just for a screensaver?

I wrote a script for this a long time ago, I'll try to find it if you can't find anything else.

I believe WebShots does this now though, along with a ton of other apps.
