Now, I am currently using DeskSlide, and goodness knows its a great freeware application. And if it only had one more thing, it would be perfect, but alas, it does not. Most other shareware applications have this, but they leave a bad taste in my mouth. Its randomization. DeskSlide has what I can call a "playlist" of wallpapers, and I can randomize it myself, but I can't move the files with my mouse, I have to use UP and DOWN arrows. Talk about a load of time. Now, here's what I would like in the freeware application:

Randomization
Scaling wallpapers without making it ugly (like stretching, what Windows does, DeskSlide renders the wallpapers beautifully upscaling or downscaling to 1400 by 1050 SXGA+)
Directory reading support (Like reading images within directories that have directories, I can't explain it well)
Scheduling (Every 24 hours)
Autofit (Autofits the image to my screen, though I love what DeskSlide does, it adds a black border around the image, though its not required, the black border is pretty cool)

Thanks you for your support and help.

I don't know if this is what you're looking for but I use Wallpaper Master. It changes my wallpaper every time I boot up. You can set it for any interval you like. I think it does a lot of the other stuff you're talking about but you can check that out for yourself.
