Overlap Wallpaper

blog clipart
I promised to make an App as a thank you to DC members, so here it is.

Description (of the application) :

Displays a photo on the desktop wallpaper in overlap manner, so that one can have the photo of loved ones on different wallpaper images on desktop. The overlapped photo can be sized, and positioned on desktop as required; and also can be made semi transparent.


Benefits (of using it) :

I like to have my family photo on my desktop (who don't). Now sometime I come across a good nature image as desktop wallpaper (I like nature, abstract etc.). To have my loved ones photo over the nature's wallpaper, I open up image editor, adjust the two images, save and set as wallpaper, done. In another few months, I find a breath taking image of water fall and want it as my wallpaper. Open image editor, and ... done. When I need to change the family photo with the latest naughty one of my son, I look for the image editor, and ... done.

Well as a developer, somewhere inside me I was not feeling good. I wanted the benefit of both worlds and in automated manner.

Googling gave me many freeware wallpaper changers and some with collage facility. All these does the job but not as I required. I wanted the wallpaper to change the main background image but keep my family photo overlapped on it.

I made one, which does as required. It shows the given image overlapped on the existing desktop wallpaper. Further one can use a wallpaper changer and have the loved ones photo always overlapped on different wallpaper images.

My colleagues, who wanted the same but could not use image editor properly, love it. We all have our religious photo (looks like we all turn religious as the pay day nears), overlapped on different wallpapers on all our desktop now.

Title: Kansas
Programmer: Edvard 
Requester: dtrud0h
Download Version: 1.00.00 (06/30/05)

When experimenting with alternative shells one often needs to get back to Explorer quickly and easily without having to edit the registry and reboot. Kansas is an AutoIt3 script (and a compiled executable for those who don't have or want AutoIt) which changes the shell back to Explorer and logs off (which is much faster), without any user interface. It's called "Kansas" after Dorothy's home from "The Wizard of Oz". Like Explorer, Kansas was dull and grey, but it was Home, and that's where she wanted to go.
