Top community discussions about Backdrop

Backdrop is a simple utility to fill your screen with a solid color or picture. This is useful for taking screenshots without having to clean up your desktop or as a dark background for other purposes.

What's New

Version 2.4:
  • Setting to choose whether Backdrop appears in all Spaces or not.
  • Fixed (hopefully) a crash bug when finishing a Fullscreen Color Cycle
  • Fixed an issue where starting and stopping Fullscreen Color Cycles quickly could leave the Backdrop window in a bad state (covering everything until you quit the app).


OS X 10.6 or later
