DesktopPictureProfileCreator is a simple bash script that generates mobileconfig profiles for managing the desktop picture on macOS computers.

Run the script followed by the path to the image you want to set as the desktop picture. For example “sh /Library/Desktop\ Pictures/Aqua\ Blue.jpg”. Whatever path you specify must exist in the same location on the computer(s) you intend to deploy it to.

The profile will be created on the desktop of whichever user runs the script. In the example above, the profile would appear at ~/Desktop/Desktop-Aqua-Blue-jpg.mobileconfig
