Print Calender on Desktop Wallpaper?
« on: December 28, 2007, 09:51:58 AM »
I know it's possible to print calender on desktop wallpaper :D but what program can do it? Is there any program specifically made for this purpose, rather than just a small feature in a program.   :)

mnemonic mentioned John's Background Switcher a while ago. It's freeware and can add a simple calendar.
I`m a firm believer in the philosophy of a ruling class, especially since I rule.

rainlender indeed looks cool but it has to be always running to display calender, so this isn't what im looking..i need one that just print a small calender on the top right area of wallpaper, then quit..  :)

do you mean you want something to physically superimpose a calender on your current wallpaper image,
i.e. to make a new image with calender in it?

I don't quite understand how you can expect the screen to keep displaying a calendar when the calendar program has closed. I cannot think that is posible, unless it is saved to the wallpaper's picture file itself.

right -- i believe such programs exist -- they basically create an image of background wallpaper with calendar on it, save the image, and set the wallpaper to it.

then they have to set themselves up to be run once per day or month so that the wallpaper image is updated automatically.

the other option is to use active desktop to essentially display an html/web page calendar.

I don't get it fully either, but if you happen to use Outlook and want to view calendar with your appointments (or any Outlook folder), there's a brand new version of Outlook on the Desktop. The Outlook even doesn't have to be running.

yes it is possible..that's also what i meant by 'print'.  :)

check BGInfo by sysinternals. It let you display your system info on desktop wallpaper. first it grabs your current wallpaper picture and print/paints important info about your system on the pic then re apply it as your desktop wallpaper.

by the way, i found an online tool here that can paint calender on images you upload. it can also accept image on flickr, photobucket or other online sources.  :)

not so bad i guess..but if there's offline tool to do exactly like this, that would be much better  :Thmbsup:

just found this via google: Art Plus Wallpaper Calendar. Comes in LITE, Freeware and PRO, ($34.95) versions.

tagline: It's not just wallpaper... It's not just a calendar... It's BOTH!

Check out: www.zepsoft.com site. They have a program called WalCal3 that I use. It runs in the tray, and clicking your mouse on a calendar date shown on the desktop lets you enter data directly into the desktop calendar. It has many settings you can adjust, and a built-in "backup" capability. It also allows you to control changing your background images, ability to "see through" the calendar, and lots more. Currently run it on XP 32bit, and really find it useful for my appointments. NOTE: Depending on font size you set in the program, the calendar may not display multiple appointments for the same date. Again, it's located at www.zepsoft.com site.

Hope this helps!

I use Yahoo widgets and they have 52 different calenders you can display on top of your wallpaper.
Here's the link:
http://widgets.yahoo.com/tags/calendar
Don't know if this is what you want but tried to give it a shot

BTW, I use the weather and clock widgets and I use a freeware program to see the weather in Maine (my daughter lives there) called "Weather Pulse" so
 I can compare the weather between Connecticut and Maine.

The description and download can be found here:
