- Bring your Windows desktop to life with DeskScapes 3 -
PLYMOUTH, Mich., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Stardock, the world leader in Windows desktop customization, released DeskScapes 3 today. DeskScapes is a unique program that allows users to customize their Windows desktop wallpaper with effects, animation and a variety of other options.
DeskScapes 3 adds support for Windows 7 and includes a host of effects that users can apply to their existing traditional desktop backgrounds.
"With DeskScapes 3, I can take a photo and use the included effects to turn it into a wallpaper I might actually use," said Brad Wardell, President & CEO of Stardock. "For example, I can add textures to my wallpaper or use sepia tone to make it less distracting."
DeskScapes 3 also includes a new configuration interface that lets users easily mix and match between different types of wallpaper. Natively, DeskScapes supports its own popular DREAM format which lets users use video or dynamically generated animated wallpaper. Version 3 extends this format to support what are called "Hybrid dreams" that let users mix and match static images and animation designed to provide easy to create animated wallpaper that are also practical and visually exciting.
Because DeskScapes uses the new Windows compositor in Windows 7 and has a native 64-bit version, users of Windows 7 are able to make use of animation and effects with no effect on system performance.
"What makes DeskScapes so compelling is that it uses your existing hardware acceleration to be able to deliver animated wallpaper and other effects without slowing down your system," said Wardell. "DeskScapes is the natural next stage in evolution for desktop backgrounds. A well done background does not distract but merely enhances the user experience of Windows."
DeskScapes 3 can be downloaded at Stardock's website. It costs $19.95 to register it or can be purchased as part of Stardock's Object Desktop suite of desktop enhancement utilities.
