a wallpaper monitor, remind you of saving and classifying desktop pictures whenever you change or get a new wallpaper.

I love my desktop pictures, which is my motivation behind coding this app. I am very annoyed at the fact that some apps and online wallpaper services always try to download and save their wallpapers in some undocumented, HIDDEN or even system folder like: "/Users/your-name/Library/Application Support/the-app-name". Which really makes it tough for me to organize them.

Meanwhile, there's also another problem. Say you're surfing the web and come across a good picture, and you set it as your wallpaper with a simple right click of "Use Images as Desktop Picture". This is all good and well until you change your wallpaper again the other day. Now, where is the old one? Maybe you know they are all in a same name of "Safari Desktop Picture.jpg", you've lost the old one unless you dragged it from System Preferences to a folder manually.

wallpaperGUARD is here helping you. Just set a parent folder as your default desktop picture's folder, you may also add as many as classify sub folders like "arts", "beauty", "cars" deep in 4 levels. You're done! Now, any new image that becomes your wallpaper, whether it was set by another app, a web service, or yourself, will be checked by the wallpaperGUARD for its real location. If it is already in your default folder, so much the better. But, if it is not, wallpaperGUARD will pop out and offer to copy or move it to anywhere for you, it's that simple!

Especially consider this app if you have more than 50 desktop pictures or if you have no idea where more than half of your wallpapers are stored.
