    Tried that, what annoys me is that it has transparent space at the upper and below screen. I just couldn't help wondering what those are for? I could use GIMP for much better result. Im not a coder, i really wish some coders out there could come up with something more interesting like e.g. photo View in 3D. Compiz has them? is it possible to borrow the codes from compiz and create a photo view in 3D?

    If someone does not like to install another program, he can use one of online services, for example:

    You can just upload a few pictures, choose background, choose resolution (important for the wallpaper), then place/rotate/resize your photos and save final collage as wallpaper.

    Thanks for the package. There will soon be 0.7, so if you want to make a package, that will be very cool :)
