Hello all,

I've never seen this util promoted here, but it's of such good quality I thought I'd give it a plug (I'm not John BTW!).


Now up-to v.4.4, which adds new features, the Logon-screen wallpaper changer being my personal favourite.

Improves on native wallpaper changer by allowing independent images per-monitor and proper image scaling. Display modes include mosaics, picture-piles and random;


(Supports fade transitions on Vista & 7)

Potential image sources are multiple, including;

Individual pictures on your computer.

Folders containing pictures on your computer such as ?My Pictures?.

Flickr photo sharing ? selecting pictures by person, tags, sets or just plain random. You never know what you?re going to get next!

Facebook ? your friends photos on your desktop!

Vladstudio wallpapers ? choose from the coolest wallpapers on the net!

Any Media RSS feed ? choose pictures from sites like DeviantArt, Photobucket, LOLCats and Zooomr amongst many others!

Phanfare web albums ? keep up to date with your friends and family.

smugmug photo galleries ? yours, your friends, anybody?s!

Picasa Web Albums ? choose from specific albums or any search text.

Webshots ? if you?re a Webshots user, you can choose from your online or downloaded photos and collections.

Google Image Search ? get pictures from anywhere across the internet.

Bing Image Search ? not a Google fanboy? Then Bing is for you!

Yahoo! image search ? the internet is your oyster!

My advice, if you like desktop variety, especially with multiple monitors, give it a try!
