Is there a way to do this?

You know, using a truly static screensaver defeats the purpose of a screensaver (which is to prevent screen burn-in from leaving a static image up!)

I have a lot of pictures in there, is there a way to do this without having to empty my pictures folder (and putting just this particular image)? – Lazer Nov 25 '10 at 21:56
