Small program that automatically changes the desktop background using bitmap/jpeg files that are located in a particular directory (and its sub-directories, if required).

It is possible to:

- Set the interval (between 1 second and 24 hours) at which the background is to be changed.
- Minimise the program to the tray icon.
- Have the program start in the tray icon, if that was the state in which it was last closed (it thus makes sense to have a link to the program in the Startup folder).
- Have only one instance of the program running at the any given time.
- Have, like in Windows, the picture tiled, centered or stretched.
- Have the picture enlarged, if it doesn't have a 4:3 format.

Note: a couple of pictures (one bitmap and one jpeg) from Windows are attached to serve as a quick and dirty example.
