Question: Gif as a Wallpaper?

Hi, I was curious if there is a way to set a .gif image as your desktop wallpaper? Maybe an app or software? Thanks for any feedback! 🙂

Yes, and you don't need another app. Go Apple icon > System Preferences > Desktop and Screen Saver and see if the gif is available in the folders presented on the left. If not, click the + in the lower left and add the folder that contains your gif(s).

I'm afraid OS X does not provide for animated wallpaper. There are some apps that claim to do this such as DeskFun and BioniX. But I haven't tried them and don't know if they cause system issues. If you try one, let us know what you think of it.
