Desktop background question

Hi all.
Just bought a new PC. Windows 7. 64bit.
Finally sorted out all my old program probs with updates etc (thanks Bill)
I have a folder full of images that I have set as a theme for my desktop background, but I would like to have these images fade from one to the other. Is this possible in windows 7. 64bit?

If not, is there any way I can set a WMVor other video comprised of these images with all the fades in place to play on it?

Hello Deziarkus, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you do not have the Windows 7 Starter and Basic edition installed, then you should be able to setup a Desktop Slideshow for this with those pictures in one folder.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks. Already got a slideshow going, but I wanted the images to fade from one to the other instead of just flicking over.

I'm not sure if that's possible for fading to the next one without some 3rd party program.

I thought that might be the case. Looks like the hunt is on then.
