I am trying to change my desktop image

But, when I go to system preferences and click on "desktop inmages and screen saver", the pinwheel continually spins.  It is not responding. I have to force quit preferences.

Help please!

    I am having the same problem.  Lion is about as glitchy as a Windows PC !!

    Same problem.

    I chose a large image by mistake and now that part of System Preferences is trying to load images endlessly. I need to know how to stop the process.

    Nothing loads so you can't stop it and can't access any other preferences.

    Things I've tried that on't work:

    - Restart

    - Force quit: it quits but same problem when you open System Preferences to try again.

    - Chose a tiny image to replace the large one, by option-clicking on that image.
