We all love to add a personal touch to our environment, whether it’s painting our den that particular color of green, or customizing our car with wheels, dangly dice and go-faster striping down the side. So why should our computers be any different?

Even though Microsoft has tried to give us interesting desktop options, with nature, animal or artistic scenes available, they’re still not personal, if you know what we mean. If you download and install the free John’s Background Switcher program, however, you will be able to customize your desktop with exactly the photos and images you want, from whichever collection you wish to use.

The software lets you choose from your Flickr photos, Facebook, Instagram for the mobile snappers, public material such as LOLCat photos, Picasa and the rest. Once you’ve set it up with your choice of image sources, the program will grab and change the images at your favorite interval of choice. You can even set it up to scatter photos on your desk scrapbook style, to give it that arty look. It’s fast, fun and totally free.

    Win7 has the means to do this already, right click on desktop, click on personlize.

      Yep, I was going to say the same thing. Plus if you are using your own photos, or collections that are ON YOUR COMPUTER – you don't have to worry about those other sites and what they are stealing, or placing, etc!
