Allows you to set .bmp, .gif, .jpg, and .png images files as wallpaper
Edit By BS Editor: Even though Windows allows you browse for and select images to use as wallpaper, there is still a lot missing from the whole experience. To address these shortcomings, I wrote my own program to make a wallpaper changer that works the way that I want it to. Given the current state of technologies such as GDI Plus and advanced controls, this incarnation of the wallpaper changer is everything I want it to be.
It allows you to set .bmp, .gif, .jpg, and .png images files as wallpaper
It has a graphical Image Browser to help select a particular file, with customizable image sizes
It offers a list view of image files and allows you to sort by name, size, date, or resolution
It color codes the image resolutions to easily identify those with the same ratio as your screen
It has a preview area complete with monitor effects such as inner shadows and a glare
It has an optional caching system to make loading directories lightning quick
It allows you to easily delete/Copy/rename files, and supports drag and drop
It offers high quality bicubic interpolation to resample images to your screen resolution
It has an image Viewer mode that shows the picture in its own window, resizable to zoom in/out
It's resizable so make the directory browser and preview area large or small
Wallpaper Xchange doesn't modify or replace any of your source images. Instead, it will make a copy of any image and use that copy for the wallpaper. It can optionally keep thumbnail-sized cached copies of images to speed up directory previews, but these are kept in a separate Cache directory underneath the program directory so that it won't interfere with your image directories.
