ChronoWall 1.52 Portable by Evan

ChronoWall is a professional application that was created to manage your desktop wallpapers.

One of the key features is the ability to specify which wallpapers to use based on the time of day and time of year. Beyond that, ChronoWall provides many unique ways to view your photos on your desktop.

Image Effects:
· The underlying linear effect layering system allows you to change the way an image looks based on the time elapsed. Imagine being able to look at a green meadow and have it red-shift as the sun nears closer to sunset. Or if you want something more out-of-this-world, you can colorize an image throughout the entire spectrum as time elapses. There are several effects that can be applied to an image.

· Another feature of ChronoWall is the ability to have photo collages overlayed on top of your background. Collages can be displayed in several different styles, and the images used in them can come from several different sources. You can have your friends from Facebook on your desktop cheering you up as you work on a project, or have a Flickr search of a beach vacation giving you motivation.

Online Search and Social Media integration:
· In addition to supporting single image files and folders on your computer, you can obtain images from Flickr, Google, Yahoo, Bing, media RSS feeds and Facebook. The integrated search feature gives you the ability to specify an online image search as your background. In addition, you can choose specific images from each search with the built-in search results navigation. The same feature set is also available for RSS media feeds.

· For each image source, you can specify exactly how and when you want to look at them. For instance, you can look at a search of beaches from Flickr during a Summer day and images from NASA at night. You can also mix several image sources together. When image sources are mixed together, you can specify how often you want to see each of them. Each image source can be displayed as the background or as a collage, giving you endless possibilities.

What's new:
· There were a few users that were experiencing crashes in the last 1.51 release. This latest release addresses all of those issues. In addition, when an image was set to span multiple monitors and it was either too wide (or too tall in the case of vertical monitors), it wouldn't span them correctly - this has been addressed in this latest release.
