Chapter 6. Sharing Photos > Setting the Desktop Picture

Setting the Desktop Picture

In Mac OS X, you can display a picture on your Desktop, and with iPhoto, putting one (or more, in rotation) of your photos on your Desktop is a matter of just clicking a button.

To set the Desktop picture:

1.
Select one or more photos, and click the Desktop button (Figure 6.50).

Figure 6.50. Click the Desktop button to set the selected photo as your Desktop picture.


If you selected only one photo, iPhoto immediately changes the picture on your Desktop (Figure 6.51).

Figure 6.51. With a single click, you can put the photo you have selected in iPhoto on your Desktop.


If you selected multiple photos, iPhoto displays the Screen Effects dialog (Figure 6.52).

Figure 6.52. iPhoto gives you the choice of rotating through multiple selected photos or an entire album.


2.
Either leave the pop-up menu set to Current Selection, or choose an album from it, and then click OK.
