Desktop Movepaper was designed as a replacement for your regular desktop wallpaper, with the purpose of displaying images and animations in full screen while providing access to the task bar.
It is also able to use images from URLs or to create a slideshows made up out of web search results for a specified keyword. It can be used on an average computer and addresses all audiences on account on its ease of use and simplicity.
Also, it does not require installation; simply double-click the executable and wait for it to load – note that it might take a while. At first, the application displays a white background, hinting you to move the mouse to the upper left corner of the screen to reveal the menus.
From here, you will be able to add a new image from your hard drive (in PNG, JPG and GIF format) or from a web URL, in which case you will be required to specify the address. Other options allow you to clear the current image, to save it locally (in BMP format) or to share it on Facebook.
Also, you can opt to stretch the image or to generate a slideshow using pictures from the Internet. The latter option will search various web portals, such as Google Images, Reddit, Flickr, Imgur, Tumblr and Deviant Art for images that match a user-defined keyword.
The fetched pictures are displayed at a preset delay that can range from 10 to 60 seconds. Please note that this feature requires an Internet connection.
It is important to mention that during the slideshow, the task bar will remain visible at all times, providing access to the Start Menu and pinned applications.
Overall, the application behaves decently, although the support for input image formats could be richer. It would also be great if it could create slideshows from multiple local images instead of displaying just one.
