Windows 7: Dual View Wallpaper

Dual View Wallpaper

I know that it can be set, either in the Nvidia Control Panel, or OS settings, but I have been scouring through them without finding it. I had this set perfectly before, but when I went to change the wallpaper on my secondary monitor, I lost the background for the primary one.

I downloaded the background that I want again, and saved it to a convenient location, alongside of the wallpaper for the secondary monitor, but the only way that I have found to use them is by setting them in UltraMon.

The problem with that, is now the primary's wallpaper displays blurry, which is not the nature of the wallpaper that I use. How should I set this up?

Also ZBar will not only give you a 2nd taskbar, but can set wallpaper in a few methods. A Guy

I just use Ultramon since it works great for me and is very easy to set different wallpapers for each screen.
Been using it for over 10 years now.

Do you have any idea why UltraMon might cause the wallpaper on the prmary monitor to be blurry, when the second monitor isn't?

only idea is if both monitors are a different resolution and the image on the primary is a small image being scaled up.
Example, monitor 1 is 1280x720, wallpaper image is 1280x720
monitor 2 is 1920x1080, wallpaper is 1280x720.
If the image is smaller than my example, then scaling it to 1920x1080 would make the image even blurrier or more pixelated.
Also, images with higher dpi settings can scale better, can be blown up more and not blur as much.

I don't know what resolutions you are using or the pixel size of the images you are using, but that is what comes to mind when reading your problem.
