Desktop Posters downloads images from flickr's extensive photo library and displays them on your desktop's background, bringing your desktop to life with interesting photos of the day, or photos related to keywords you choose. Think of it as a wallpaper changer with an endless supply of high quality images.

If you want to download random photos from you favorite flickr photo set, or group pool, you can do that too if you know the associated ids.

Desktop Posters lets you choose how often your background is updated, or you can change the background at anytime by clicking the Change Poster Now button. It also displays the url of the current displaying photo, so you can always find who took that great photo.

For those with two screens, it's possible to choose that the posters be displayed only on the main screen, on the 2nd screen only or on both screen.

The application's dock icon also shows a preview of the current poster, so you never miss out on that interesting photo!


Release Notes:

Fixed connection to Flickr service.

just what I was looking for - I was just realizing that I've been staring at the same desktop picture for too long and tried searching the new Mac App store for a way to get fresh desktop pictures automatically, and this is exactly what I was looking for. It is exactly what I want--no more, no less, and so far it works perfectly. (To the developer: I know the changing icon is a part of the program, but if you get a nice default icon it will attract more attention in the store.)

Don't waste your money - Don't waste your money. The pictures you get are nothing like the ones shown. They are the everyday person's stupid pictures of feet or a picture out thier front window. A waste, stupid, and crappy quality. Don't waste your money! Apps like this make me afraid to buy apps.
