    Go to System Preferences Desktop & Screen Saver pane Desktop tab.  Click the plus sign under the sidebar, and choose that folder with the pictures.  It should appear in the sidebar, under Folders.  When you select it, the pictures should appear as thumbnail images to the right. 


    Check and set the checkbox below to Change picture Every 5 seconds.
