Wallpaper Cycler is an easy to use, yet powerful desktop wallpaper
manager and changer to get rid of that boring static wallpaper on your
desktop. You can change the wallpaper with a specific delay or at
specific times. Wallpapers are easily managed in multi-level
categories which can have time constraints to give your desktop a
time or season dependent look. For example: a category can be defined
for wallpapers that will only be used in the summer, at night, etc.
Categories can be linked to folders on your hard disk to automatically
detect new wallpapers. A lot of attention has been given to the
performance of Wallpaper Cycler. As a result, Wallpaper Cycler allows
you to manage tens of thousands of wallpapers without slowing down.
You can assign tags to wallpapers, layouts and/or categories. Tags can
be used to link wallpapers to specific layouts, to create Search
Folders which act as dynamic categories, etc. Tags can also be used in
combination with the Smart Orientation feature to select for example
portrait wallpapers when your monitor is in portrait mode and
landscape wallpapers when it is in landscape mode.
An advanced random selection algorithm is included to ensure that
all wallpapers are randomly chosen before a wallpaper appears again.
Wallpaper Cycler also includes a Windows Vista Gadget to control
Wallpaper Cycler from the Windows Sidebar.
