Is there a way to show a picture using Frameless.exe allowing for Desktop background transparency?

      advantage of this feature.

doesn't the above work for you?

It would if it were real, it's just an animated .gif I made just to illustrate what I was talking about. Lol!
I'm looking for a program (like Frameless.exe) that can load animated .gif's but allow for transparency.
Example: When you load Adobe Reader, the logo is semi-transparent.

I'll repost my original question to whom ever is out there; Is there a way to show a picture using Frameless.exe (or a program like it) allowing for Desktop background transparency?

Hi bandit012345,

I do not know what exactly you want, but you can display a frameless png/gif with transparency on desktop using my freeware app Overlap Wallpaper https://sites.google.com/site/overlapwallpaper/ , no animation though.

See if it fits the bill.

Regards,

Anand

Thanks for the reply.
I am looking for a program/utility that allows alpha transparency using multiple .png files - basically like an animated .gif only with transparency to the Desktop behind.

Well I did some research on it. All below allows boaderless image show.

1. Overlap Wallpaper allows png alpha transparency, but do not have multiple file reload from folder option. Also no gif animation. No command line.

2. Frameless allows png alpha transparency, but do not have multiple file reload from folder option. But it has gif animation, but without the transparency. Also has command line

3. ImageOpen (googled and downloaded) has slide show of multiple file reload from folder option but without the transparency. Also no command line.

So you see all has some feature missing and not fully as required by you.

Either anyone gets updated or you may google and find the one that has all features.

I do not promise now for updating Overlap Wallpaper as too busy with project works.

Regards,

Anand

There is one little program that I have on my laptop and I use it to display animated gifs with a transparent background. The program is called Impression: eyes, made by utilhaven (shareware, but the freeware version does work ok. and YES, it´s 100% FRAMELESS!!).
Unfortunately, utilhaven has closed down... so I don't know what's happening with the program.
