Automatically Download Celebrity Wallpapers From

Do you like to keep pictures of hot babes on your desktop? Who doesn’t? Well, you just need to head over to website Skins[dot]be (could be NSFW) and drool over thousands of wallpapers of beautiful women. As much as you would like to spend maximum amount of time on that site, you do have important work to do, don’t you? The presentation to complete, the sales report to prepare and the blog post to write. So what you should do is get your hands on Downloader.

This is a free and open source program that automatically downloads random wallpapers from and applies it as your desktop background, and refreshes it at a time interval of your choice. If you don’t like the current wallpaper, you can open the program and load another wallpaper, or just click on the random wallpaper button until you get one you like. Alternatively, you can right click on the program icon on the system tray and access the ‘next wallpaper’ option from a menu.

At the time of this writing, had over 27,000 wallpapers across 870+ celebrities and models. Downloader downloads the images to /My Pictures/ Downloader directory on your computer, but it only uses it as a temporary cache. It does not keep the wallpapers it downloads; the new wallpaper overwrites the previous one. So you cannot use it to build up a collection of wallpapers. A workaround to this problem is to use a backup software that supports file versioning.

The free Windows utility, Copy changed files , fits the bill perfectly. Get this program to monitor the directory mentioned in the previous paragraph and it will automatically backup the images whenever it detects files being changed. Make sure you append the current date to the copied file, so that every image is saved with a unique file name. Yadis Backup is another program that you can use.
