How To Set An Animated Gif As Your Mac Wallpaper

Are you sick of using boring and static images as your Mac wallpaper? Have you thought of using an animated GIF instead to make your wallpaper more vivid? It is obvious that getting an animated wallpaper on your iPhone is very easy, but doing this on Mac desktop is not very easy at all. But you do not have to worry, now we will give you the step-by-step instructions to set an animated GIF as your Mac wallpaper.

First of all, you will need to download GIFpaper. This is a Mac OS X utility that helps extend the existing functionality of OS X by allowing users to set animated GIFs as their desktop background on a MacBook or iMac. Being easy to use, this is a useful software you should try out.

  • Step 1: After the app is downloaded, it will be a zipped file, so you will need to unzip it to have access to the program, then open the GIFPaperPrefs file.

1- step 1

  • Step 2: In the preference panel, choosing your animated GIF by using the Browse option. You can also adjust the settings from the panel.

2- step 2


  • Step 3: The animated GIF will automatically load up. If that does not work, you can install the GIFPaper app and upload the GIF as a wallpaper that way.
  • Step 4: To remove GIFPaper, just head into System Preferences and right-click on the GifPaper icon.

3-step 4

                    Then, open Activity Monitor, find GIFPaperAgent and Quit it.

3-step 4.1That’s all you should do. We want to notice that GIFPaper is a little program clearly built just for fun, so it tends to hog a lot of resources when using about 15% of CPU to display the animation, but as far as we can see it isn’t too bad for making your Mac desktop more vivid.
