Extended drag-and-drop support: You can now play media files for which you have installed third-party QuickTime components (e.g. Perian (.flv among others), Flip4Mac (.wma and .wmv)) by simply dragging them onto the DesktopCollage icon.
DesktopCollage Version 2.0 introduced these exciting new features:
Movie stickers: Spice up your desktop collage by adding your favorite movies and animations.
You can add all QuickTime compatible movies and animations, even multi-page PDFs.
DesktopCollage lets you adjust playback and volume with the help of a floating, semitransparent movie controller.
You still have full control over the layering of the stickers in your collage and DesktopCollage provides unambiguous feedback about which stickers are currently selected by displaying them inverted.
You can customize DesktopCollage with preference settings that mute or pause movies while the program is in the background.
DesktopCollage listens to Fast User Switching: The playback of movies and animations is stopped while the user is switched out.
You can choose initial settings for playback and volume for each movie sticker individually and for all newly created ones as well.
And did we mention that you can play your favorite background tunes by adding QuickTime compatible audio files to your collage?
DesktopCollage can be set to automatically shrink new stickers to fit your computer's screen. This comes in handy with all those megapixel digital snapshots...
With the new tolerance slider you can select a whole range of similar colors which you want to be transparent in the image sticker you're about to create.
Multiple monitors are supported.
DesktopCollage can be set to ignore Exposé. This gives you the ability to see what's going on in your collage by activating Exposé to hide all other programs. - It's like having a movie player with a "boss key" (provided that you have this large, laborious spreadsheet open...)
