ChronoWall description
ChronoWall is an all-in-one desktop wallpaper manager for Microsoft Windows 7/Vista. One of the key features is the ability to specify which wallpapers to use based on the time of day and time of year. Beyond that, ChronoWall offers many unique ways to view your photos on your desktop. Image Effects The underlying linear effect layering system allows you to change the way an image looks based on the time elapsed. Imagine being able to look at a green meadow and have it red-shift as the sun nears closer to sunset. Or if you want something more out-of-this-world, you can colorize an image throughout the entire spectrum as time elapses. There are several effects that can be applied to an image. Collages Another feature of ChronoWall is the ability to have photo collages overlayed on top of your background. Collages can be displayed in several different styles, and the images used in them can come from several different sources. You can have your friends from Facebook on your desktop cheering you up as you work on a project, or have a Flickr search of a beach vacation giving you motivation. Online Search and Social Media integration In addition to supporting single image files and folders on your computer, you can obtain images from Flickr, Google, Yahoo, Bing, media RSS feeds and Facebook. The integrated search feature gives you the ability to specify an online image search as your background. In addition, you can choose specific images from each search with the built-in search results navigation. The same feature set is also available for RSS media feeds. Versatile For each image source, you can specify exactly how and when you want to look at them. For instance, you can look at a search of beaches from Flickr during a Summer day and images from NASA at night. You can also mix several image sources together. When image sources are mixed together, you can specify how often you want to see each of them. Each image source can be displayed as the background or as a collage, giving you endless possibilities. Time of Day and Time of Year ChronoWall will change your wallpaper to images that you want according to a schedule that you specify. A schedule can be specified by a date, season, time and the position of the sun. Wallpaper images from any source are placed into groups that have schedules associated with them. There can be as many images as you want in a group, and there can be an unlimited number of groups. You can also create on-demand groups if you want images to appear on your own time. Image Effects Image effects are a list of effect layers with points in time that define beginning and ending parameters. There are dozens of available effects to choose from. In addition, you can define your own. Image effects can be created from the following adjustments: Hue, Colorization, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Sharpness and Red/Green/Blue Color Balance.Release notes: New ReleaseTE The logo on the top-right has been removedTE The top buttons have been made much smaller and the animation effect has been removedTE Dialog backgrounds are now solid whiteTE Thumbnail generation is performed in the background - search results are now much more navigableTE Many GUI elements, such as the image effects GUI have been converted to a gray color as to not influence image perceptionTE When dragging points in the image effects GUI, they are snapped every 1/4 mark in the timeline as indicated by the top sliderRemoved help bubblesTE Removed the ability to customize the GUI color, which could cause a significant delay when starting the applicationTE Removed on-demand groups.
