The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.5
Whenever you get tired of your Desktop's appearance, the first thing that comes through your mind is to look for a new wallpaper. But if you want to take it to the next level, I recommend you to try DeskScapes, an amazing application that lets you display stunning wallpaper animations on your Desktop.

Unlike the Personalize menu (Desktop background settings on Windows 7), this program gives you access to plenty of configurations, from wallpaper positioning and applying effects to background color adjusting and icon transparency setting.
I personally liked that DeskScapes not only brought me a large list of themes, but also let me select personal creations and, using the advanced settings, I could easily position my background image to fit my screen. In addition to this, dozens of impressing visual effects will help you get the professional-looking wallpapers you need.

My only concern is that, if you are using a laptop, opting for an animated wallpaper might increase the average battery consume.

I honestly believe that DeskScapes is a great choice when it comes to personalizing your Desktop because of its numerous themes and very reasonable price.


  • User-friendly interface.
  • Comes with many background settings and effects.
  • You get access to various background templates.
  • Comes with a built-in search tool.


  • After installation, the taskbar disappeared (I had to restart my PC to fix the issue).
