Content

 

In this tab you have quick access to some of the BioniX Wallpaper Changer'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

In this tab you can flip the wallpaper, rotate it and mirror the first half of the wallpaper. You can also set the wallpaper effect and the image quality.

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.

Rotate 90° left/right will rotate the the wallpaper 90° left/right.

 

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 Wallpaper Changer will use the EXIF data to automatically rotate your wallpapers. 'Rotate 90°' takes precedence over 'EXIF rotate'.

 

You can enhance the wallpaper and adjust the Saturation (S), Contrast (C) and Brightness (B).

Wallpaper image quality

BioniX Desktop Wallpaper Changer 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.

The Background tab  

 

In this tab you can apply different effects on your wallpapers.

1. Fade borders to black - Apply a smooth transition to wallpaper borders. For the best results set the desktop color to black. This effect is smoother for higher values but it also requires more time to compute. The default value is 25.


2. Auto determine image's border color and fit desktop with it - Auto determine the background color when the wallpaper is smaller than your desktop. Can be applied ONLY if the wallpaper touches the edges of the screen.

  • Coverage shows how many pixels on wallpaper border need to have the same color in order to use that color as background color. The higher value, the higher the chance to find the right color but the lower the chance that the color can be determined. Default value is 4%. To disable it its value must be 100%.
  • Color tolerance: Increase this value if the background color is not determined correctly. However, this also decreases the chance to find any color at all. Its default value is 8.

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