Wallpaper Master - hoard your wallpapers

Website - Freeware

Review

Awesome free wallpaper manager with excellent, clean GUI.

 

Great for people who hoard wallpapers in the thousands. Although it's the freeware version, it's still the best wallpaper changer on the web, trust me, I've wasted countless hours trying them all. After trudging through one sloppy app after another with mediocre features and atrocious user interfaces as well as questionable performance, I finally found this application, not quite believing it. It looks great, has tons of cool features, is backed up by a friendly developer and is constantly in update mode going though many version changes in the last few months. This doesn't mean the program is buggy, it's not, but this is obviously a labour of love for the author, who is consistently tweaking and tightening up the code.

 

  1. Store multiple wallpaper lists as different categories/libraries.
  2. The ability to rate wallpaper, so better wallpapers are chosen more often.
  3. Customizable Global Hotkeys - Quickly change/clear the wallpaper with any key combo.
  4. Very high quality resizing of images to fit the screen optimally and keep their aspect ratio.
  5. Auto change the wallpaper when windows starts, every x minutes, or use the ratings to choose an interval.
  6. Change wallpaper in order, in shuffle mode, or randomly according to rating.
  7. Analyse the wallpaper and automatically choose between Resize, Tile, Center or Stretch.
  8. Uses very little resources.
  9. Minimizes to tray area for easy access.
  10. Easy to use but powerful interface.
  11. Desktop Wallpaper Master is a free download (freeware)!
  12. And more!

Quote from the authors site

Wallpaper Master is a powerful and highly customizable desktop wallpaper manager and cycler. It will automatically change your background wallpaper with a huge range of options, and is great for indexing large collections of personal photos or any kind of image. You can create your own categories using images on your computer, and it will cycle through your images automatically in whatever order you specify: in a shuffle mode, listed order, or based on your personal ratings. The program also has auto-size options to make sure your images are displayed with optimal size.
