Editors' review

If you're stuck at your computer for hours on end, you may as well have something nice to look at. Wallpaper Downloader is an easy way to adorn your desktop with a multitude of changing images. Unlike some wallpaper applications, this one manages to supply a steady stream of high-quality, attractive photos. This isn't the type of program that we typically like to use ourselves, but we found ourselves enjoying Wallpaper Downloader quite a bit.

Wallpaper Downloader works by downloading images from Bing Images and then displaying them on your desktop as wallpaper. The program's interface isn't the most attractive we've ever seen, but it's fairly straightforward. You can choose whether you want the program to download new images automatically, whether you want the program to change the wallpaper automatically, and whether the program should use all images or just the most recently downloaded ones. The interval at which the images change can be adjusted, from 10 seconds to 12 hours, and the program can center, tile, or stretch images to fit the screen. We weren't crazy about the fact that the program requires registration for use--there didn't seem to be any reason for it--and a Help file would have been nice. But on the whole, we can't complain about Wallpaper Downloader; it worked well both to download images from Bing and to change our wallpaper, and it ended up being a nice addition to our desktop.

    "Worked well to download the Bing images for $5."

    August 14, 2012   |   By LucyJJ2

    Version: Wallpaper Downloader 2.7

    Pros

    I wanted it for downloading the previous images, and after making the $5 donation and clicking "Download All Images Now", it quickly downloaded 1971 stunning Bing images. This beat individually downloading all the images, or writing a javascript to download them.

    Cons

    They want your email address. But we all have extra email addresses we use to register such things, right?

    Summary

    I could find other programs that would download the current day's image, but this was the only one I could find that would download the previous ones. I didn't need it for setting my wallpaper, because Bing Desktop already changes my wallpaper for me daily. If you don't have or want Bing Desktop, then this program is great for giving you a new wallpaper each day (or every 10 seconds, or any of 14 other intervals). I use the set of Bing images as my screen saver, when I want a break from looking at my personal photos. I tried Bing Spectacular Scenes screen saver, but it splits the image over my two monitors; otherwise it would be great. I kept Wallpaper Downloader 2.7 to download the new image each day to add to my collection. Bingdownloader.exe works well for that also, when you add it to Windows Schedule, but I prefer the descriptive name that Wallpaper Downloader gives the image over the date name given by bingdownloader.
