Custom desktop clock

Add your favorite image to the face of this clock.

This completely customizable clock lets you dress up its clock face with your own pictures. Though it took us a little time to load our picture, we found it a fun alternative to the staid system clock.

Custom Skin Clock appears on your desktop as a plain, analog clock with directions to right-click to add an image. Doing so introduces a menu that lets you adjust the clock's size and transparency. You can also choose to keep the clock on top of whatever you're working on at the moment. The Customize Clock option introduces a new interface that we found a little awkward to navigate. The clock appeared in the middle of the page, as well as text to change the clock hand colors and to load the image, but the buttons to perform these tasks were nowhere to be found. It was only after we hovered our mouse in the general area that the buttons and menu options appeared. Once we figured it out, we were able to easily add and resize our image to the clock face, change the clock hand color, and choose the font and color for the clock face numbers.

Custom Skin Clock doesn't include an alarm feature or Help file, but no matter; we liked its spin on the standard desktop clock. We recommend this free clock to any user tired of the standard toolbar time display.
