Overlap Wallpaper displays a photo on the desktop wallpaper so that one can have for example the photo of a loved one on different wallpaper image. The overlapped photo can be sized, positioned on desktop as required, and made semi-transparent.

PNG image photos with transparent colors are supported. Photos can be reloaded after a set time, allowing for example the use of another program to overwrite previous image file and auto-display it.

With the settings below this acts like a wallpaper changer, though you will lose desktop icons while running in this way.
[Settings]
photo file name=carina.jpg
photo width=1,280
photo height=-1
photo transparency=255
photo position x=0
photo position y=0

Couldn't the author just name it correctly?
Its just a desktop picture gadget, a poor one.

Hi Ganamyde,

OW has few different features than widget, so a different name.
It works in Xp which do not have widget support, and also Win8. You are welcome to read features and feedback at the website (https://sites.google.com/site/overlapwallpaper/home) for more information. I will request you to use OW along with widget to get first hand experience.

Thanks donald for tips.

Regards,

Anand

Spews v1.0.6 Updated

Spews (Skwire's Process Excluding Wallpaper Switcher) is designed to automatically switch your wallpapers on a configurable schedule. You can add image folders, choose wallpaper options, and check/uncheck the images paths as needed; only checked paths will be scanned for images.

The program will automatically suspend wallpaper switching if it detects any process names you configure in the Exclusions section. This can be beneficial, for instance, when running games that will be disrupted if the wallpaper is changed.

@Skwire,
You can easily clean up your temp left over, here is what I use...

The word "Stealth" came into use recently in reference to the "stealth" airplanes the United States government started to use back in the 80's. As for these "stealth" airplanes they are in fact not invisible, what they show is a very small imprint in hopes to fool a radar operator into thinking that what they see is nothing to worry about. I suppose the fact of the matter is that there is no magic way to keep anything totally invisible on a computer. I for one can live with this free software calling itself "stealth" cuz that's what it looks like to me... Just sayin :) Thank you to the person for their hard work in bring me this free "stealth" software that does what it says.

Would this work on Windows 8 to replace all those tiles on the home screen? That would be a good solution!
