SpaceSuit is an app that lets you select pictures to use for different desktops. This was a feature supported by OS X Leopard, but later versions of Mac OS X have removed this customization capability. SpaceSuit restores that option, allowing you to have a different background image for each desktop. SpaceSuit was not available in the App Store for this review, but we downloaded it from several sites on the Web.
Using SpaceSuit you can set a new desktop wallpaper by simply dragging any image over the program icon, which immediately sets the wallpaper to that image. To remove a wallpaper, simply click on the SpaceSuit icon to bring up a menu, which also lets you change the screen resolution, rename desktops, or change the wallpaper. The animations SpaceSuit uses when changes are made are cool.
SpaceSuit has a simple purpose, but one that those who like using different desktops will really appreciate. SpaceSuit has a clean interface and gives you back some of the customization options that Mac OS X users have lost lately. In our testing, the program worked perfectly.
Customize Spaces with a different desktop picture for each Space. With SpaceSuit, you can set your background images via a simple drag-and-drop. And changing the display settings is as easy. SpaceSuit's minimalist interface is contained in its dock icon: all its options can be accessed from the icon menu. SpaceSuit also uses Leopard's Core Animation. Everytime you change an image, resize it or modify your display settings, SpaceSuit adjusts your desktop with a smooth animation.
