Windows 7: Make the wallpaper change more often than every 10 seconds?

Make the wallpaper change more often than every 10 seconds?

Basically I wanted a wallpaper that faded through all the possible tones of a nice gradiented..kinda background I made. Kinda hard to explain, but picture this:

fade to this, with many colours in between

and then again to this with many colours in between

and back to the start.

I have a set of 35 different shades which I just have on a slideshow which transitions every 10 seconds, but I was wondering if its possible to speed this up so I could perhaps add more shades inbetween but still at a speed you can clearly notice the change. The minimum time windows normally allows is 10 seconds, can I decrease this to like 5?

Good find, the transitions are a bit rough though.

The one second timing will cause seizures.

Lol, yeah, apparently it loses the nice fade effect. I almost never see my desktop, so...

Yeah, I just have one of Nick's or Archie's on there, I don't even bother with the slideshow anymore.
