National Geographic Photo of the Day Downloader

Previously, I wrote about PictureThrill, a program that downloads pictures everyday from National Geographic and several other sites such as APOD, Bing, EPOD etc. The difference between PictureThrill and National Geographic Photo of the Day Wallpaper Changer is that aside from downloading the picture of the day for the current day, this free program can download pictures published on days gone by.

National Geographic publishes one new picture everyday as “Photo of the day”. After 24 hours the picture is taken down and sent to the archive and replaced by a new one. The archive goes all the way back to January 1, 2009.


National Geographic Photo of the Day Wallpaper Changer allows you to download each and every photo available on the archive. Simply set the start and end date, and click on the “Start” button. You can stop the download at any time. Additional pictures published during subsequent days can be added to your local archive by clicking the “Add to archive button”. Daily archive can be enabled to archive daily image automatically.

The program also functions as a wallpaper changer, as obvious from the name.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.

If you have changed the default Facebook profile picture and uploaded your own, it’s fine. But if not, then why not replace that boring picture of the guy with a wisp of hair sticking out of his head with something different and funny?
