Automatically Change Wallpaper Day To Day

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by The Perkinator, Nov 13, 2005.

  1. I currently have a custom wallpaper, it's a image I created myself. I
    went to google maps and found my house on there, than I took screen
    captures, I kept moving around on the map and took enough captures to
    make a 800X600 image. I combined the screen captures to make one giant
    google satelite image of my neighborhood. I live right by Elm Street
    so I put a Elm Street sign on the bottom and also Freddy Kruger for
    good measure.

    I really like this backround, and want to still have it, I found some
    other cool backrounds I want to use, and I'd like to rotate them, so
    one day it's my cool home image, and the next it's another cool image I
    have.

    Is there a way to do this automatically without having to manually
    switch it everyday?

    I'm using Windows XP, the most popular operating system.

    There are a number of programs that will do this in a variety of ways. Some
    are free and others cost.
    Google "windows wallpaper changer free" (no quotes). This will get the free
    ones as well as the paid ones since most offer a free trial.
    Be careful with the free ones that seem to be to good to be true since many
    harbor spyware.

    Have you tried Google Earth?

    http://earth.google.com/


    It's free and could save you a lot of cutting and pasting.

    I'm using SuSE 9.2 Professional, and I don't care about popularity.

    Ok, if you give me a spare computer I'll put that operating system on
    it. Sound fair?

    If I don't care about popularity. then why should I seek to please you?
    Or did you have something else in mind?

    I think Windows 98 is the most popular operating system. I'm using Ubuntu
    5.04, which is very popular with me.

    Do you eat McDonald's, the most popular food? Or wear polyester, the most
    popular fabric?

    Is your IQ < 100, the most popular score?
