Sometimes having just one single desktop image is not enough. This is the right moment to use My Better Desktop.

My Better Desktop, previously known ad Desktop Takeover, enables you to display several photos on your desktop, embedding them right onto your current wallpaper. Simply select the images from any folder on your PC and drag and drop them on the program's interface.

You can then arrange and resize them as you like, though I must say the resizing tool is a bit uncomfortable to use (grabbing the image's corners feel much more natural than clicking a tiny zoom button). The final result obviously looks better when displayed over a neutral image, rather than a highly detailed wallpaper.

The images used in My Better Desktop can be either static or turned into photo slideshows, which means they rotate according to a user-defined period of time. It's a nice way to show off your best shots, don't you think? Also, whenever you grow tired of your multiple-photo desktop background, you can go back to the regular wallpaper from the program itself. Strangely enough, the wallpaper appears then as tiled.

If you ever wanted to be able to use more than one wallpaper on your desktop, you should definitely give My Better Desktop a try.
