Make custom desktop wallpapers
Play around with 2D and 3D wallpaper to create something unique for your PC. Make something from scratch or choose from a large selection of options on this application, and customize them.
Build a wide variety of desktop backgrounds
Tired of the same, boring wallpaper on your PC? You can find a new one or create your own with Wallpaper Engine.
Everyone has their preferences when it comes to wallpaper on their PC or laptop, and finding something you love isn’t always easy. This application allows you to build whatever background you want, or alter an existing one.
It may seem a bit tricky at first which may turn off some people, but an easy to understand tutorial is available to walk you through the steps. There is also the ability for people who have multiple screen setups to stretch a background across two monitors. However, some people have experienced image quality issues when stretching the background across two screens.
This program has a rich content creator community where a wide variety of backgrounds are available for download and customization. Once installed, the backgrounds can be further customized by changing shading and colors on the image. The major drawback to the library of projects you can choose from is that 95% of them seem to be anime related.
Instead of a standard 2D wallpaper, you also choose to have a 3D effect or a video. The video option is common for gamers who wish to display something they’ve done in-game and worth mentioning.
Where can you run this program?
Wallpaper Engine is installable on computers running a minimum of Windows 7.
Is there a better alternative?
No. This application is one of the top choices when it comes to choosing a program to design or edit backgrounds for your PC. Alternative software like Wally and Plane9 are options you can explore if you don’t enjoy Wallpaper Engine.
While a lot of the programs on your PC can’t be changed, it is great to know you can control your background visuals.
Should you download it?
Yes. If you are someone who enjoys graphic design, then this software is a great way for you to create custom work for your PC’s desktop.
