“Raise your hand if you are constantly changing our desktop wallpaper because you get bored of it easily. Raise your hand if you would like a way to allow the wallpaper to change automatically at an interval of your choosing, effectively turning your desktop into an art gallery.”
*Raises hand* “Oooo pick me, pick me.”
Okay enough with the Ashraf-talking-with-himself. Today I am going to show you how you can make your desktop wallpaper change automatically, either using a library of images provided by others or using a library of images you have gathered on your own, so you don’t have to suffer by seeing the same desktop background day in and day out. Yes, I know I am such a caring person.
How to go about turning your desktop into an art gallery will depend on which of one the following category you fall into:
If you fall into the second category, you can skip down to part 2; otherwise keep reading.
I have my own images that I would like to use for my desktop wallpapers.
For anyone worried about computer resource usage, as I speak, I have AWC running: it is using 0-1% cpu and ~4MB of RAM.
NOTE: Automatic Wallpaper Changer is now shareware. The version I linked to you is 3.0.7, the last freeware version out there. Therefore, don’t upgrade to the newest version!
I don’t have my own collection of images that I would like to use, but I still want my desktop wallpaper to change automatically.
If you use Tweeter, you can submit a tweet everything your wallpaper changes with Desktoptopia – look under “Social” tab.
For anyone with an old computer, Desktoptopia uses more resources fluctuate: 0-25% CPU (it is usually around 0-1% CPU usage while idle; it only rises when the wallpaper is changing) and 4-12MB of RAM (it is usually on the lower side of the RAM while idle).
