DeskScapes 11 Brings Animated Background Creation, Cloud
Wallpaper Library Integration
Stardock’s popular desktop background management application gets major update
The beta for Object Desktop users is available now

Stardock announced DeskScapes 11 today. DeskScapes adds a host of desktop background features to Windows, including animated wallpapers, advanced background customization, and much more. DeskScapes 11 adds a powerful design tool for creating animated wallpapers, as well as integration with the cloud for sharing and applying both animated and standard user-made wallpapers.

“The new version of DeskScapes is compelling both for animated and standard wallpapers,” said Brad Wardell, CEO of Stardock. “For fans of animated wallpapers, we include DreamMaker Pro, which is both powerful and easy to use for creating or enhancing desktop backgrounds.  We also added seamless integration to cloud-based services for finding desktop backgrounds.”

DeskScapes 11 is designed to extend the Windows built-in desktop background manager to support features such as adding custom directories for backgrounds, fast searching, timed playlists, playing videos as backgrounds, online cloud integration, similar background search, additional scaling and sizing options, advanced multi-monitor customization, colorization, wallpaper filters, scheduling and more.

“Our goal with DeskScapes 11 is to be the ultimate desktop manager while providing the tools to create the ultimate backgrounds,” said Wardell.

The included DreamMaker Pro tool is designed to make it easy to create animated backgrounds. It includes dozens of different effects, drawing tools, brushes, logos, particle effects, and much more.

DeskScapes 11 enters beta on Stardock’s desktop enhancement suite, Object Desktop, starting today. It will be available as a stand-alone download later this Spring. Check out the preview guide here.
