With CoolCollage you can create amazing compositions of your photos and use them as a screen saver, desktop wallpaper (that changes automatically) or anything else like albums, prints etc.

 

Here is a quick start to get things going:

 

1st Step: Select folders with pictures

 

From the "Picture Folders" tab (click using mouse to select), using the add/remove buttons at the top-right, add folders with your pictures. Note that all sub folders are included automatically.

 

The folder list on the top shows folders used to select picture for the screen saver and desktop wallpaper. The bottom list shows folders used for collage generation.

From the "Wallpaper Settings" tab you can choose to have the desktop wallpaper change on computer startup, or on a specific time every day, or have it change every x minutes (like every 60 minutes). Set these options here.
