How to Change Wallpapers Automatically

When you have a great collection of beautiful and high resolution wallpapers, you might be confused on which to keep as desktop background. Here is a small FREE application which does the job of changing wallpapers automatically at an interval set by you. John’s Background Switcher is a free application which will change your wallpapers automatically.

Not only it picks up wallpapers from any folder in your PC, but also from online photo sharing sites like Flickr, Phanfare, SmugMug, Picasa, and Yahoo. JBS sits in your system tray (down by the clock) and changes your background at the time interval of your choosing.


You can specify which pictures to choose from:

  • Individual pictures on your computer
  • Folders containing pictures on your computer such as ‘My Pictures’
  • Flickr photo sharing – selecting pictures by person, tags, sets or just plain random.
  • Phanfare web albums – keep up to date with your friends and family
  • Smugmug photo galleries – yours, your friends, anybody’s!
  • Picasa Web Albums – choose from specific albums or any search text
  • Yahoo! image search

This freeware will work on Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista (both 32 and 64-bit version).
