John's Background Switcher - Windows wallpaper complete control

Posted by ClifNotes, July 2008, permalink Desktop Tools


I've got pretty simple tastes when it comes to making my desktop look good. If you need something a bit fancier, like automatic wallpaper switching, John's Background Switcher is one of the absolute best ... and it's free.


If you'd like to find out a bit more about it, read a little bit of the review from y0himba at donationcoder.


It provides not only the ability to use pictures you select, or entire folders and sub-folder you select, but also allows for random Flickr and Yahoo photos/pictures! You read correctly, you can configure John's Background Switcher to grab the top 100 or whatever user specified number of photos/pictures off Flickr and Yahoo for endless random backgrounds. You can also specify tag/text keywords for Flickr, and search terms for Yahoo ... This switcher surpasses all others in my opinion, and completely leaves comparable commercial products in the dust. The author is very personable, and responds to every feature request and bug report through his forums. While you are on his site, check out his photography. If you enjoy this program as much as I am, please donate.
