Where great old Macs live again!

I'm looking for a utility that will change the desktop background
upon a certain time period. I'd like to set it up for using photos from
one folder and then change them e.g every day, every week etc. Sure, I
could do it manually - but I'm lazy :)



Does such a program exist for Mac OS 9? Any suggestions?



As always, thanks in advance for your help :)

There is at least one, but I do not remember its name this moment.
A real RAM-eater it was... It worked with System 7 already.
Ah, 'Desktop Textures 2.1' created these squares of 64 x 64 pixels max., and there will be someone here to help.
There is a 'Texture Randomizer', but I guess it cannot change the desktop when your computer is running.
But it is not really what was on my mind.
Hei ! Du bist ja in Deutschland (im weiteren Sinne).
Ja, Weizenbier macht träge.
Aber es gibt so'n Programm, das weiß ich.
Über welche Maschine schreiben wir ?
If you turn off the desktop in the Appearance control panel, you can use Décor to display a desktop picture. It requires 2 MB of RAM, a 68030 or PowerPC and System 7.1. It has options to dither, tile, scale, stretch and rotate through a folder after a set period of time either in order or randomly. It even supports a time delay for lower end machines. It is fully capable of displaying even the 2560x1600 images that come with OS X, though at the expense of a large chunk of RAM. (That's probably relative: 4 MB for the default OS 10.5 background.)
That's it !
The picture is loaded into the system's RAM.
@ Lars Ja, das ist schon das mediterrane Flair hier in Oberbayern ... die gewisse Trägheit im orbis catholicus ;-)

@ Gavin Thank you, that's exactly what I was looking for! It works awesome on my iMac G3 with OS 9.2.2, thanks a lot.
Von hier aus gesehen beginnt Katholisch-Norditalien in Paderborn...
Allerdings liegt ja noch das überwiegend protestantische Hessenland in der Gegend herum
(da habe ich auch über zehn Jahre gewohnt).
... und sechseinhalb Jahre hat man mich mit Latein gequält ;-)
Das war aber noch in meiner westfälischen Heimat.
