I have the background image on my OSX desktop set to change every x minutes- it chooses a random image within a specific iPhoto album.

However, when I remove photos from that iPhoto album, the removed pictures continue to cycle on my desktop.

How can I fix that?

@the Yes. I've rebooted many times since I started pruning pics from that iphoto folder. – bevanb Apr 23 '13 at 6:15
