    Do you like to customize your desktop with wallpaper? Why stop there? With Windowspaper XP, you can put wallpaper in the back of any window

    Gloria,

    I'm not sure why you would only get a .jpg file? You can also right click on the "Download" button found on this page: http://www.sodabush.com/products/win.../downloads.php and choose, "Save Target as". You should then see your download manager open and the file is: "wpxp101.exe".

    Here's a direct link to the file: http://www.sodabush.com/products/win...p/wpxp100b.php

    I also sent the company an e-mail yesterday, to which I have not received a reply. They just fixed the problem. I know because I went there this morning and clicked on the download button and the download file appeared. I haven't installed it yet but it seems just the kind of thing I'm partial to. I do love attractive things, that's why I almost had a fit when I couldn't see my IncrediMail web page. Which I fixed, by the way, with help from one of the posters here. I removed the program from the Hosts file. Now I'm a happy camper once again.

    Thanks for all your help, you've been most helpful and I really appreciate it.

    Re: Windowpaper XP

    Viking you are correct. I've bought and used Webshots for a long time. My wallpaper couldn't be more beautiful. I'd hate to reveal the size of my wallpaper files. I'm not very technically inclimed. but if it's attractive, than the program's mine. I decorate my home the same way I decorate my computer. Now if I can find some place to get a spectrum of colors ...........

    Hi Duchess,
    <hr>I'd hate to reveal the size of my wallpaper files.<hr>
    You probably know this, but there's very likely to be an option somewhere to optimize your files' size (in my old version 1.3.0.3181 there is one in the Photo Manager: Collections | Compress All). This optimization I believe will only take place if you have modified something, e.g. deleted a photo from your collection.

    Diego,
    I think that they left that function out in the latest version 2.0.0.4324. I also have the latest version and compression is nowhere to be seen.

    Diego & Bob,

    I will write and ask why it was left out and if it can be reinstated. Will post back here with their reply.

    Re: Windowpaper XP

    Duchess,
    That would be good to have back in place. It's probably in the "Premium" ( paid ) version now. Have you noticed how it has drifted from 5 free pics, then 3, now only 2?

    Re: Windowpaper XP

    I just received a reply from Webshots . The message reads: The Webshots Desktop 2.0 saves photos differently, so there is no longer a need to compress them to save space. If you want to free up some space you can clear your webshot cache.

    Open the Webshots Desktop software by double clicking the icon on the desktop.
    1. Click the "Options" button.
    2. Click the "Advanced " tab.
    3. Click the "Clear Cache" Button.

    That was a very fast response, but that's a perk from buying the program., I get VIP Support and go to the head of the line.
