I've downloaded hundreds of wallpapers and have them randomly changing and occasionally want to know what I'm looking at. often just has the first file in the folder listed as the background / wallpaper instead of the file currently being displayed. So, short of Google Goggles, how can I tell which image is currently being displayed? Thanks! OS X 10.6.

Darn. I was going to suggest Google Goggles. – Blomkvist May 18 '11 at 0:14

defaults read | grep NewImageFilePath

the last line shows the location of the previously used image

Actually I want to grep LastName but with that fix, it works. Thanks! – Philip Jun 6 '11 at 19:37
