I have created two beautiful wallpapers for my office desktop. One is a photo of my beloved wife that was made about ten years ago when we travelled across Europe.
The other is a photo of our daughter. She smiles at me. Both photographs boost my morale, helping me to do my daily work. However, as you might guess, I always have to make a hard decision: which one should I put on the desktop today?
Recently I came across a program called "Izbushka". While the name of this software is rather strange, it finally solved my problem.
The program sits in the system tray and controls the wallpapers on your desktop. It allows you to manage your collection of desktop wallpapers and change them via a schedule.
Simple enough and it works! Being able to put my wife and daughter on schedule, I started to download more wallpapers from the Internet. I have since decorated my desktop with shady forests, ocean sunsets, movie stars and even with masterpieces by Da Vinci, Rembrandt and others.
Soon, I had an impressive collection. And this is exactly where Izbushka has helped me yet again. I found it's not just a wallpaper changer but a feature-rich collection manager too.
Izbushka allows you to organize your collection by categories. No need to convert images to match your desktop dimensions. The program fits each image automatically using very smooth resizing algorithms.
Adding new wallpapers is very simple. Just drag an image with your mouse and drop it into Izbushka. Sometimes I download new wallpapers when browsing the Internet.
And I found an interesting feature of Izbushka. The program can constantly monitor specific folders for new images. It will use new images as soon as you save them there.
No need to do anything else. Just save an image and Izbushka will use it. Remember that desktop wallpapers are not just for fun! It is an important attribute of your workplace.
