Photo Desktop

2.4.2
22 September 2014

Create a collage of photos on your desktop.

Overview

Photo Desktop allows you to put photos on your desktop, instead of having to choose one photo to use as your wallpaper, you can now add as many little pictures to your desktop as you want.

Photo Desktop 2 adds too much to the previous version to describe, below you'll find a summary of some of the more significant changes and additions.

Multiple photosets

  • With Photo Desktop 2 you're no longer bound to a single composition, with an unlimited amount of photosets you can create different desktops for different moments.
  • Use Smart photosets to let Photo Desktop create and update Photosets for you, based on a folder you point out or on the iPhoto album of your choice.
  • Use the changer the automatically switch between different photosets. You can also use the changer to shuffle the Photosets, including Smart photosets, so your Desktop will never look the same.
iSight support
  • Photo Desktop 2 now comes with built-in iSight support. Allow you to create photos in the PhotoChooser simply as one of the many photo collections you have.
  • Use the snapshot feature to instantly create a photo using your iSight camera and add it to your desktop.
  • Also new is the Photo Desktop Spy, the Spy can automatically create snapshots and add them to your current desktop or a designated other photoset.
Core Image Quality & Animation
  • Photo Desktop 2 is built utilizing Apple's Core-Image technology. For Photo Desktop 2 this means that your resulting Desktop will have a far greater quality than before. Also this means that fun effects could be added to the Editor.
  • With a new engine powering Photo Desktop 2, a screensaver has been added to complete the Photo Desktop package. The Photo Desktop Saver makes your desktop come to live by animating the photos off your current photoset.
  • Utilizing your videocards power also enables the 'Live-updates' feature, when turned on your Desktop gets updated instantly without the delay you saw in Photo Desktop 1.
Much more customization
  • Photo Desktop 2 add many other functions to further customize your photos. The photo info panel has been extended with frame-shape, shadow, effect and additional options.
  • Existing functionality like the caption functionality has been further extended to allow for caption on the photo as well as using shadow or 3D effects.

  • The Photo Desktop preferences have also been further extended to adjust the application to your wishes.

Been using it for a while now, sometimes the program just quits without any reason or message.

Taking a star off because of this bug.

Wow, what a way cool program! Downloaded it, tried it about 5 minutes, and was immediately sold. I never used the previous version, but I have to say that new interface is simply brilliant....didn't need to use help once, just all made sense and worked great. The special effects, relying on Core Image, are really outstanding. The program is just plain *fun* to use, and within minutes I created some marvelous new desktops. (The screensaver is great eye candy, too.) For a desktop image nut like me, this is a must have...and the price is very reasonable for all the ease of use and features. Going to buy it today.

I used to love showing my friends the various pics on my Mac thanks to PD. Then late last year it went completely unusable. I missed it, but I just turned to Adobe Illustrator and made jpg desktops. Last month an update came out and I thought great that PD is being supported again. Well the short version of the disaster is that it either all 4 cpus on my quad G5 pegged, G5 crashed, PD beach balled and had to force quit or PD just suddenly quit after starting.

When I try to add a new photo all I see is a spinning beachball..... Can't use it at all. Wish it would work, could be a nice app.

I want to delete/remove the Photo Desktop application. It won't let me because it says the program is open, even after I force quit. Help.

Even after you quit the editor, Photo Desktop is still running. The only way I have found to quit it is to go to Activity Monitor, find the process called "Photo Desktop," and quit it. Then you should be able to delete/move to trash/do whatever you want with the Photo Desktop app.
