DeskPicture is a shareware desktop wallpaper application and extension for SSW 7.

From the website:

DeskPicture is a handy utility that makes it easy to display pictures on your desktop and manipulate them to your taste. Once you've placed one or more pictures on your desktop, DeskPicture provides many options for adjusting their appearance. In general, DeskPicture offers many of the same functions for moving pictures and changing their size as drawing applications, so if you've ever used that type of application, you should have no problems working with DeskPicture.

This installation also includes "DeskBlanket", an After Dark module that can be used with After Dark or any After Dark-compatible screensaver, such as DarkSide of the Mac.

A utility known as DeskHanger was integrated into this version of DeskPicture. An alias to DeskHanger can be created from the control panel, after which you can drag an image onto the alias to update the desktop image on the fly.

A version was later developed for early Mac OS X known as DeskPicture 10.

The main program installs as a Control Panel into the System Folder (actually an application that behaves like a System Control Panel) and an Extension into the Extensions Folder inside of the System Folder.

Even though the name of the first download suggests it is v 4.51, it installs v 4.5 as the page name indicates. So I have uploaded version 4.51 (dated 2000)
