Windows 7: Possible to make Desktop Wallpaper like Live Photo Gallery Slideshows?

Possible to make Desktop Wallpaper like Live Photo Gallery Slideshows?

if anyone has used live photo gallery (part of live essentials), they have a pretty cool slideshow tool that uses certain styles to slideshow your pics. Such as "Travel" which makes multiple pics in an album look on one page.

i wanted my desktop to look like that instead of one full screen picture at a time.

is this possible..? perhaps a 3rd party program does this?

There are a couple ways that you can go about doing this. You can splice pictures together in an image editor (give me an example of what you want and pictures, I'll do it for you), then set it to slideshow mode. Or if one is available you can use a Stardock Deskscape plugin that gathers your pictures from a certain folder. I think Nimi's visuals also has a trick or two like this but I've never been able to get that program to function completely. - Your Edge In Software
