DEVONtechnologies releases version 4.0 of Christian Grunenbergis famous tool PhotoStickies.
PhotoStickies displays one or more photos located on local drives or on the Web as frameless windows on the desktop, shows Webcam pictures, acts as a fast image viewer, and records and replays slideshows.
Also, PhotoStickies can be used as a comfortable wallpaper utility.
In contrast to already existing programmes, all windows are borderless and may float above all or behind all windows, right on the desktop. As PhotoStickies supports (and even calculates) alpha channels and transparency, images donit have to be opaque rectangles but may have any possible shapes.
Also, PhotoStickies can make its windows transparent for mouse clicks.
Additional features include realtime filtering of images, Webcams and slideshows (blur, sharpen, contrast, brightness and more) to improve display quality, a special webcam mode to save bandwidth for other tasks or monitoring lots of Webcams at the same time, reverting to saved states on startup, favorites and zooming, rotating, tiling and flipping of images.
PhotoStickies can be run as a menu extra, is highly multi-threaded, supports multiple screens, drag-and-drop, contextual menues, the dock menu and process and inspector panels.
