A review of John's Background Switcher by Sven Sørensen

John's Background Switcher is a desktop enhancement utility which changes the background image on your desktop every-so-often.

The program doesn't just function as a basic wallpaper changer but also as one which can create custom backgrounds from multiple images by creating collages with different styles.

The settings of John's Background Switcher includes many customization options and can scan your computer for different images suitable for your desktop background. You may add folders or simply remove them.

One really neat feature of JBS is its integration with online photo sharing communities. For example, it can access the top 500 photos from Flickr from a variety of categories like those from the last 7 days, certain categories like landscapes and more.

John's Background Switcher also integrates with other online services such as 500px, Instagram, Facebook and others like Google Image Search.

The whole process by this program is fully automated; all the user has to do is setup some basic options. It can also handle separate backgrounds if you have a multiple monitor setup with different desktops.

Overall, John's Background Switcher is an awesome wallpaper utility which can really spice up your PC desktop.
