What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While DeskScapes is currently feature complete to the dev team and could ship today after some more bug fixing, we really look forward to finding out what the community thinks the program is missing. We want to integrate feedback for any missing features the community demands.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“One month.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Please refer to the “About this Software” to see what features are included in DeskScapes. The version available in Early Access includes the full feature set.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It is currently in Beta 2, but we are still fixing bugs and implementing community feedback. All of the features listed in the "About this Software" section are fully implemented; please refer to that for more details.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, we are providing special pricing during the Early Access phase of DeskScapes.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will actively seek feedback and answer questions on the forums. This will help us identify and eliminate bugs, plus add features that the community has requested in order to deliver the best product possible.”

About This Software

Create your own backgrounds using personal images or videos or choose a pre-existing background from the massive cloud-integrated library and bring your desktop to life. You can use the background as-is or apply dozens of special effects to make something truly unique just for you.

  • Browse thousands of user-created backgrounds right from within the app
  • Explore dozens of different customization options including drawing tools, brushes, logos, particle effects, and much more using the powerful design tool
  • Create your own animated backgrounds with pictures and video
  • Customize your backgrounds with tons of special effects (color filters, textures, blurs, and over 120 effects to mix and match)
  • Share your creations easily thanks to seamless cloud integration
  • Select/run different backgrounds for each monitor
  • Add backgrounds of your choice to a playlist and cycle through them on your desktop as often as you like
  • Display your system resources or add a clock directly on your desktop background

DeskScapes has gone through rigorous testing to make sure it doesn't drain your system's resources. You can add some style to your PC with your favorite animated backgrounds and not have to worry about the lag.

DeskScapes uses its own established cloud-integrated library, WinCustomize. The in-app feature offers an easy-to-use browsing and navigation experience so you can find the animated or static background you want. Similar to the Steam Workshop, WinCustomize contains all community submitted artwork.

DreamMaker Pro is designed to make it easy to make your own animated backgrounds. You can start with an image of your own or select one that comes with the app. When you're done customizing, DeskScapes will convert the file into a Dream, which will allow your PC to play the animation as a background. Add animated objects like clouds or lightning bolts, use brushes to apply overall effects like darkening at custom intervals, apply text while utilizing a variety of fonts, and so much more.
