Can my wallpaper "Auto update"?

I’d like to set my desktop wallpaper to some reference material that will change. Is there any way to do that so when I change the source file, the displayed wallpaper will change? It doesn’t work when I point it to a normal image and update it in Preview, which was my assumption, but I’m hoping someone has an idea?

Maybe something like this exists?

Perhaps with Übersicht?

If you make it the only pic in a folder and tell MacOS to use that folder for wallpaper, changing every few minutes, I think it will work.

I wondered about that as a workaround!

I did write an AppleScript once to change the wallpaper and set it to run on a schedule. Maybe you could do something similar.

I’m using the folder method and it’s working okay, mostly.
