Is there a verified way to set a desktop background picture in the Finder under OS X? I tried script recording the actions of going into the Preferences and setting it, but that did not work.

The AquaBlue.jpg seriously irritates me, and my desktop pictures get reset after disconnecting my external monitor.

Educated answers only, please.

PS: I bought Applescript in a Nutshell, and to be honest was a little disappointed. While the book was well-written, I felt it didn't have a lot of OS X stuff in there. I'm sure this will be included in the next edition.

Now O'Reilly, how about an Applescript Cookbook (for OS X)? :-). I'm a UNIX dweeb who became an Apple dweeb because of OS X, and I'm suprised at how powerful Applescript appears to be, especially the hooks into apps.
