I like to keep mixing up my background images every half an hour or so.
Additionally, I have about 1,500 wallpapers in my
Pictures folder on my Mac:
Most of these are hand curated, but some are from wallpaper dumps I found online (e.g. from r/wallpapers). Some of these don’t suit my taste or are mildly inappropriate. I would like to get rid of those images.
Though Mac allows you to change the desktop every X minutes, it does not provide an easy way of mapping back a wallpaper to the file it was from.
I got quite annoyed by this, and created this small app to fix the problem for myself.
It is a small Mac app I wrote which should show you the currently active
wallpapers (for all the monitors). It does that by reading an
where OSX (Yosemite+) saves the currently active wallpapers.
It sits there demurely in your status bar as an icon until clicked. Upon clicking, it generates a scrollable list of all active wallpapers:
When you find the wallpaper you would like to locate on your disk, you can double click it and it’ll open it in a Finder window:
Upon subsequent clicks, it’ll re-use the same Finder window, if open.
