Question: Desktop Wallpaper Reverting to White Screen Automatically

My desktop wallpaper always reverts to a blank white screen after a period of time. I am trying to have my background change every 30 minutes or so but cannot set it up to function in this manner. I noticed this first when my software was upgraded to High Sierra. Before that, my wallpaper cycled through different ones every hour or so.

How can I resolve this issue?

MacBook Pro, iOS 11.0.3
