Windows 7: Landscape Wallpaper Experiment

Landscape Wallpaper Experiment

I know landscapes are not necessarily a big topic for wallpapers here, but since that is what I'm into, this is my experiment:

I don't like super-intrusive images as wallpaper, because they're, well, intrusive to my mental workings while I'm on the PC. Many landscapes because they are meant to impress tend to be overbearing after a bit (to my feeble brain at least ). What to do?

If you increase the brightness to make it lighter, it throws off the contrast ratios and mucks up the image. So what I did here is I tinkered with the opacity / transparency to give the overall image less presence without mucking up the overall integrity. I have created several sets, each set has two copies of each image, a light weight (file name ends in L) and a medium weight (ends in M).

If anybody wants to check them out please do and let me know what works and what doesn't, even if nothing works, as they have reduced impact but the idea is to have something that won't drive you bonkers after looking at it in and out all day. Think "pastel images" ...

If you have some nice time-lapse sets it certainly would be a nice idea.

Setting Portrait or Landscape
Hello: In printing screens, it is often necessary to set the printing orientation to either Portrait or Landscape. However, drilling down in menus until you get to where you can set this is boring and time-consuming. Is there any way to do this quickly (button/macro or the like) for Win 7? ...

Screen rotation toggle landscape to portrait
I often work on projects in portrait mode. I do this either through the nVidia control panel or Windows 7 Control Panel. Is there an easier way to toggle between landscape and portrait orientation? Can this be done with a batch file or keystroke macro? Thanks.
