John's Background Switcher

Highly recommended

John's Background Switcher periodically changes the wallpaper (background image) on your computer. I have it load every ten minutes the most popular images tagged 'Nature' in flickr -- you can use any tag -- but you can also point it to a folder of photos on your own computer. It works beautifully, is a free, quick download, is easy to set up and use, and I've had no problems with it.

If you get sick of the flickr pictorial theme, you can change 'Nature' for any tag you want. Like 'Australia', 'yellow', 'frog' or 'sunset', for example. To do this, you right-click on the John's Background Switcher icon which you will find in the 'tray' or menu bar at the bottom-right of your monitor. Then click 'Settings' and make changes. You can also change the amount of time the images take to change.

Combine it with a free Wilson's Almanac screensaver (no spyware, no ads, virus free) ... heaven!
