Scatter creates 'windows' out of your pictures (JPG or PNG) which can be placed anywhere on the screen (they do not sit behind desktop icons). These pictures can be resized, have transparency and include a text label if desired.

You can create a desktop background using these pictures and a ‘wallpaper’ of your choice using a background image on your computer.

Note: Original pictures that you use with the app are not altered, they are copied by the app.



You can design your own wallpaper from your favourite pictures, here's an example:


Tip: For some users, disabling "Change Picture: ..." in System Preferences, Desktop & Screen Saver, needs to happen in order to change the desktop picture (when using Create desktop picture).
