This tool suffices for making only the simplest slide shows from your images or photos and has more limitations than benefits. Browse your PC for photos using Wallpaper Swap's familiar Windows XP-style interface. Once you've collected images, you can set the interval, ranging from 10-second to 10-minute intervals, between switches. Alas, you are limited to only six images and the program can only work with BMP files, which greatly diminishes its usability. Unlike similar wallpaper-changing utilities, you won't be able to add transition effects or slide styles. Wallpaper Swap doesn't work in the background, so the program will take up space on your taskbar while it runs the slide show. Most frustrating of all is the program's inability to remember settings, which makes it necessary to reset the app each time it's opened. Even though it's offered as freeware, there's little to recommend this overly simplistic program for any user.
