Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This program helps you manage and automatically change wallpaper with several customization and categorization options, some of which seem superfluous. Power Wallpaper Changer has a relatively easy-to-understand interface, with icons abundant. Browse to select your images (you're not limited to certain extensions), put them into various preset categories or add your own, set the time for your screenshots to rotate, and you'll have a fresh desktop look in no time. There are several setting options, and you can add captions to each image. The application can store screensavers and desktop themes. However, the category designation seems a bit unnecessary as the images do not just rotate in one category. Also you have to deselect the display of file path, which serves only as a distraction. Performance-wise, the application crashed once during our tests and slowed the system on subsequent tests. The 15-use trial is a bit stingy, but users who really want to spice up their desktop with multiple images should give Power Wallpaper Change a try.

Developer's Description

Welcome to Power Wallpaper Changer V3.2 (formerly PrettyWall). There are a lot of nice pictures, screensavers, and desktop themes available on the Internet. If you have ever felt it is too hard to manage them, then try Power Wallpaper Changer, a powerful wallpaper-management tool. It uses a mutli-level category to manage the wallpaper; you can put different kinds of wallpapers in corresponding category. It uses any BMP, JPEG, GIF, ICO, CUR, TIF, TIFF, WMF, EMF, DIB, RLE, PCX, PNG, TGA, ICB, and PIX file as wallpaper. It has six wallpaper styles (centered, tiled, stretched, fit to screen, special effects, and rules) and can apply many effects, such as Invert, emboss, gradient, fish eye, twirl, zoom, and rotate. It can change your wallpaper on start-up, after a period of time, or at your specific time automatically. Power Wallpaper Changer V3.2 differs from other programs in that it has some individual features, such as the ability to share pictures with your friend via e-mail.
