Ok so the fact that windows never had the ability to automatically change the computers background wallpaper daily was very annoying. The fact that mac can do it is another cherry on the icing on the cake. However i appears that you cannot create your own custom albums to be used as a daily changing wallpaper, is this true, can it be done?

all you need to do is with in the desktop & screen saver function, tell it where you pictures are located.

Make a folder of all the images you want to be in your desktop, then in System Preference go to Desktop & Screen Saver, in the Desktop Tab click on "Choose Folder" and find the folder with all your images. Then at the bottom of the window there's a "Change picture" option where you tell it how frequently you want the picture to change.

okay thanks i have done that. But now the photograph quality is very poor even with photos that used to be very good on my wallpaper! The images now are all blocky and poor graphics. Worse still one of the photos (actually a short 1min video clip) which i keep deleting everywhere, appears as the first picture in any folder i chooose to appear as my wallpaper, which is very annoying.

Sounds like you've compressed the images a whole lot or something... and as for the video clip, that is extremely odd. Not a clue what's going on there.
