This is mostly a note to self, though others are welcome to comment.

Input providers to consider:

Output Providers to Consider:

  • Ability to position/resize/crop images.  Position means at least the options Windows supports: Tile/Center/Stretch/etc..., but could also mean positioning smaller images around the screen, or reducing the size of the image and placing it over the top of another image/solid color in a particular location.
  • Weather overlay on wallpaper.  For the best flexibility we would use templates which we would render and then draw on the wallpaper using anti-aliasing/transparent colors.


Completed Ideas:

  • National Geographic wallpapers/photographs. (Done in [Changeset: 65903])
  • Aura project (aura.codeplex.com) which will change the Aero color to match the wallpaper choosen. (Done in [ChangeSet:65875])
