Review

Wally is a dependable application that will help you keep your desktop fresh by constantly changing your background image. The great thing about this program is the fact that it doesn't only use the photos that you have on your computer and that you probably already know, but it can also go online and find pictures that will match the topic query that you insert.

With Wally you will be able to get pictures using popular engines like deviantART, Flickr, Yahoo, Photobucket, Picasa, Google etc or from remote FTP servers. Furthermore, this convenient tool will ensure that you will always be able to quickly find any picture that was previously set as a wallpaper by checking the history that it saves.

Wally allows you to customize the time interval between two automatic wallpaper changes, to determine the position of the images on your screen, to use and configure a proxy server, to select the engines that it should use when searching for your photos and to make many other program behavior settings. Moreover, the application is capable of downloading and displaying the EXIF information along with the pictures that it gets.

All in all, Wally is a tool that will ensure that you will never get bored with the images on your desktop. It uses a wide array of engines to search for the pictures that you want, sets them as wallpapers and automatically changes them.
