Windows 7: Wallpaper Rotation Lag Issue

Wallpaper Rotation Lag Issue

Has anyone else had the issue where when your wallpaper changes to the next in the rotation your whole system lags for a second.

The only way to get around this is to set one and only one wallpaper which works but isn't really optimal -_-

My system should have no issues with wallpaper rotation but just seems to lag for me which is weird, happened in the beta too but I thought it was just a beta issue :S

Any help is appreciated

Do you have the pictures stored on an external Hard drive?

How big are your pictures? If you resize the resolution to match your desktop resolution that might help. If you try to use a huge multi-megapixel photo as your desktop background it will take a few seconds to load.

All images used are already the same resolution as my desktop

Im wondering if it has to do with the cool n quiet feature on my cpu, having to go back to full oc when changing desktop and then changing down again, although I didnt think it would make a difference

Screen Orientation and Wallpaper Rotation (on Tablet PCs)
On Tablet PCs, screen orientation can be changed so that any side of the screen can become "the bottom" of the desktop. Unfortunately, the result is that a wallpaper intended for a 1200 x 800 desktop, is stretched to fill a 800 x 1200 desktop. See the effect in the attached images. Is there any...
