Are you tired of always having the same desktop background photo? Try Wally and see what it can do for you!

Wally is an automatic wallpaper changer with a very particular characteristic: it grabs images from several sources, not only selected folders and files in your local drive, but also several online sources like Flickr, Yahoo!, Panoramio and more. Also, the program gives you the possibility to save the downloaded images to your local drive.

The good thing about Wally is that it's like having endless wallpapers for your computer. The bad thing is that you can't really choose them – except for the images in your hard drive, of course.

The program does feature some configuration settings with which you can filter the images that are going to be used, but as there's no preview you don't actually know what image has been chosen until it's finally displayed on the screen. This is the kind of uncertainty that will please some users, but which some others will find extremely annoying. On the downside, Wally was a bit unstable during our tests, and tended to crash if we wanted to select the picture manually.

Wally selects photos from various sources, both online and offline, so that you can have a different desktop background every day.

Wally supports the following formats

BMP, GIF, ICO, JPEG, JPG, MNG, PBM, PGM, PNG, PPM, TIF, TIFF, XBM and XPM
