For as many years as I’ve been hanging around Macs and PCs, I’m still surprised at how other people use their computers. Customization is the rule. Everyone wants a personal computer to be, well, personal.
For Mac users, there aren’t many options. One of them is Desktop Wallpaper. Yes, that’s the wrong term. For PC users, it’s Wallpaper (the photo which covers the desktop). For Mac users, it’s Desktop Pictures, which makes more sense.
Wallpaper Wizard is a Mac app that brings eye candy to your Mac’s Desktop. Not hundreds of images. Not thousands of images. But tens of thousands of cool photos to grace your Desktop.
The app sits in your Mac’s Menubar and gives you one-click viewing of wallpaper photos.
Use keyboard shortcuts to change the Desktop photos whenever your eyes get bored.
Or, use your own photos and share them with others online.
The total number of photos in all categories is mind numbing. You’ll spend hours roaming through the digital albums of Desktop wallpaper.
The app itself works as advertised. If you’re into putting photos on your Mac’s Desktop, it’s unlikely you’ll be disappointed with the selection in Wallpaper Wizard.
There’s also a free version if you’d like to give it a try (sans a few features and selection).
Here’s the problem I see with Desktop photos (or, wallpaper). It’s distracting. It’s a nuisance. Pretty much like Twitter and Facebook. Yet, here’s an app of dubious value toward productivity and it encourages Mac users to share your current wallpaper photo with friends online.
