in windows XP i used to use ACTIVE DESKTOP (a standard windows feature) to have multiple pictures on my desktop. I'm not talking about having scrolling or constantly changing/cycling/rotating pictures. NO SIR !
IMMA talkin 'bout having a picture in the top right, and a picture in the bottom right, and another one around here, and another one over there.
I Basically used to have a COLLAGE of pictures on my desktop background, and active dekstop allowed me to move them around constantly, changing their orientation and position AT MY WHIMMM.

but now i have win7 and this new "gadgets" skullduggery CONFUSES AND ENRAGES ME. Also it defies my will and i can't figure out howto do collages again.

what do?

(if you suggest i just make my own collage jpg in photoshup, I MAY JUST BITE YOU)

Active Desktop was retarded, and so were the vast majority of people who turned it on. How many times have I had to fix that god damn "active desktop recovery" message on someones PC so they could see a picture of themselves with a bunch of drunk off their asses college students laughing at some retarded unfunny thing while half sitting and half falling off a fucking ugly couch.

Do you think that just because it was several arranged pictures of you sitting drunk off your ass on an ugly couch it becomes art? Razz

Not to mention how ridiculously full of security holes it was. Anyone thought IE6 had no security? Active Desktop was much worse.

Roid,
As for something to do what you're after ... Ya got three choices.
1. Take some time to learn something new like the finer points of the Win7 Desktop Themes. It's you best hope without adding 3rd party software. (hey I get you don't wanna have to learn more stuff, but you did in order to get how to work Active Desktop, now ya gotta learn again. Tuff it up, dude.)

2. Use a 3rd party software. Free will most likely have ads. You'd have to buy to avoid that. Oh, and lose more responsiveness at the same time. Sorry, I don't have any suggestions. I prefer not to add stuff that will suck the life out of processor performance.

3. Do without. Most everyone else does, and they don't have to lose any performance.

My apologies for replying without giving much in the way of suggestions.

If you don't already have Photoshop, try out Paint.net (assuming you're on Windoze). It's free and VERY good.
