John’s Background Switcher is an intuitive application that displays an image slideshow on your desktop, at user-defined time intervals.

The pictures come from multiple sources, whether we are talking about the local drive or the online platform. The app supports the most popular file types, such as JPG, GIF, BMP, PNG, TIF and WMF.

Once initialized, John’s Background Switcher creates an icon in the system tray area, from where you can access the configuration panel and make all the necessary adjustments.

You can create as many sets of pictures as you want and import them from the computer, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, RSS photos, Picasa and Google images, among other sources.

They can be scheduled to switch at a specific time interval (ranging between 10 seconds and 7 days), in a particular mode (e.g. fit to screen, four-picture montage, random) and on multiple monitors (e.g different pictures on each monitor).

Dozens of configuration options are available through the Settings screen. For example, you can make the app automatically run at system startup, reconfigure keyboard shortcuts, ignore photos with user-defined tags, use the largest image size available, set proxy properties, as well as export settings for further use.

John’s Background Switcher requires a moderate quantity of CPU and system memory, has a good response time and includes user documentation.

Thanks to its intuitive layout yet rich configuration settings, John’s Background Switcher should please the entire audience.
