Add some life to your desktop! Animated Desktops 2.1 is a special bundle of three of Animation Bureau's Animated Desktops. This bundle includes our popular "Sisyphus", "Butterfly Border", and "Fish Border" animated backgrounds (animated wallpaper). Our Animated Desktops are designed to be interesting, subtle, and not distracting. These are fully functional, not time limited (although there is an occasional reminder to buy the real version ;), automatically scale to fit any monitor and are resolution independent. Easy to install and uninstall.


500 MHz G3 or better, 256 Mb RAM, Mac OS X 10.2 or later

These are great, but because there is no way to change the stacking order of "desktop" items, you may find that the animated desktop covers up windows from other apps - in my case, my Adium buddy list that sits on the desktop :/

John, that's interesting...I don't run any other "desktop" type app...does the order in which they load matter? IOW, can you rearrange it in "Startup Items" to load Animated Desktops, and then Adium? (or vice versa?)


These are really well done..How nice to have some elegant, thoughtful animation keeping me company on my laptop!

Please make more soon!
