If you browse the interesting photos at flickr! you’ll be amazed at some of the most beautiful shots which people capture and share online. It’s amazing I must say. You could spend hours browsing through because there is an update daily. But then who has so much of free time on hand, right?
So, I searched for two little tools which could display these stunning photos at the two most obvious applications on the computer – The desktop wallpaper and the screen saver. Both just got powered with flickr photos.
Slickr – this application once installed will fetch images from flickr and rotate them in the screensaver mode. You can get photos from user, group, everyone and local – add some tags you are great to go. The first few times it takes a while for the cache to build up with new images being downloaded but after a little while you’ll have images showing instantly.
WallpaperFlickr – I hate boring desktop wallpapers, and this tool makes it even more interesting because it changes wallpapers at a specified interval. A few problems are that the software needs .Net framework installed on your machine and I found the software to be a little buggy! Also the tag specifications didn’t seem to work.
