The Wallpaper effects tab
In this tab you have quick access to some of the BioniX Background Switcher's features. From here you can rotate the wallpaper, choose the wallpaper effect and enhance wallpaper (saturation, brightness and contrast), wallpaper style, tile effect, wallpaper smart size, background color or fade borders, show calendar over wallpaper and change image quality.
The Enhance tab
Flip wallpaper horizontally - this will flip the wallpaper. It is useful when the image is "concentrated" on the left side and hidden by the desktop icons, while the right side of the desktop is free of icons.
Mirror effect will mirror the first half of the wallpaper.
Auto-rotate (EXIF) - Digital cameras automatically add a special field (called EXIF) to photos. This field contains miscellaneous information about the picture such as exposure time or camera orientation (portrait/landscape). When available, BioniX Background Switcher will use the EXIF data to automatically rotate your wallpapers. 'Rotate 90°' takes precedence over 'EXIF rotate'.
Brightness effect example:
BioniX Desktop Background Switcher will use this filter every time it resizes the wallpaper. The first filters will generate acceptable quality wallpaper at a fast speed. Last filters are smoothest but slowest. We recommend using 'Mitchell' and 'B-Spline' which will generate a state-of-art quality image.
'Box' filter 'Bell' filter 'Mitchell' filter
More about filters BioniX Background Switcher uses each time it resizes a wallpaper you can find on this page.

3. Solid background color - you can choose a background color to fill desktop with it if BioniX Background Switcher cannot determine color automatically.

You can also change the calendar position on screen, vertically and horizontally.
By accessing the Wallpaper menu you can apply the selected wallpaper, set previous wallpaper, set next wallpaper, open in Windows Explorer the folder where currently selected wallpaper is located, open the selected wallpaper in external editor, rename wallpaper and move wallpaper to specific category.
