Many thanks.  thumbs up Great piece of software.
I use it in combination with all my writing pograms, and it spices up their canvas nicely.
The -nosetwall parameter and the transparency slider are outstanding. Great stuff.  Thmbsup

My only wish left: An exception list, to exclude my browser and file manager from being affected.

You're very welcome.  I always find it interesting to learn how folks use different programs.   cheesy

Lucidity overlays a transparent image across your entire desktop.  That is, it does not apply the effect individually to each application window.

I understand.
Actually, it's not necessary, I just discovered the Hotkey toggle which makes it easy enough to disable the effect on the fly.

It were nice, though - unless I am missing something again - to have quicker access to opacity levels. Either by hotkey to bring up the slider or to step up/down directly. Or to have a command line parameter for setting up various presets. Different backdrops call for different opacity levels.

The SysTray is not readily available in many situations. Even if Win settings don't hide the bar, there are fullscreen programs that won't allow it to come up on hover. Just an observation from my user experience so far, but no big deal, either. Overall, I am very satisfied. Great tool, I only wish I'd  come across it sooner.

This is actually pretty clever, now that it works!

Not content to leave well enough alone, I fiddled with opening multiple copies of it. A multi layer effect is interesting!

I think the main thing I'd like is an easy way to always do "nosetwall" without having to type a command path somewhere.

 smiley Thanks a ton. I really appreciate it, the super-quick implementation and that you made both options available, the hotkey and the command line parameter.  Cool

This raises the Windows experience to a whole new level, everything is suddenly so much more fun, it even spices up tedious maintenance chores.

@TaoPhoenix
Multi-layer effects are indeed interesting.
Concerning the command line - you know you can move your .lnk shortcuts into C:\Users\YourName\Sendto
This turns them from drop targets into right-mouse entries. You right-click an image file anywhere and hand it over to one of your lucidity presets.
