Background colour drawn from each pciture edge

Postby enterprisemedia » Fri Sep 18, 2009 6:26 am

My old wallpaper changer software (Ember - no longer produced or supported) had one lovely feature - it would assess the colour on a given corner of the image and set the rest of the background to that colour.

This has the effect of giving a nice solid colour background beyond the edges of a non-standard sized image being used as wallpaper

I'd suggest it to be a nice feature for a future upgrade

Cheers

That is a nice idea and is one I've visited in the past. Back then I couldn't figure out an algorithm to calculate the background colour that looked anything but arbitrary; even random. I'll revisit it though and see if I can come up with something that works well.

Steve,

Have a look at http://www.wallpaperchanger.de That works quite well for adding a matching background colour. I agree that some colours can look a bit arbitrary, but it's fun. If you add that option, you'll have changed your software from merely the best to perfect!

I'll take a look but there are other changes in the works that will take priority. I'll let you know if I get anything sorted out.
