Desktop Repainter 1.0 for macOS is frilly, but fun

By Aaron Lee

Park Bench Software’s Desktop Repainter is a frilly-but-fun app that lets you change your macOS desktop/background with customizable settings for variably changing colors.

The colors can stand alone, or transparently overlay any other background picture you choose. Black and white drawings and photos work particularly well, and are nicely augmented with a splash of color.

Features include the ability to: control when and how the colors change; transition between colors; adjust the opacity level of the color; create, store and switch between customized sets of colors; import/export color sets to share with others; and share your currently active color via Twitter, and have your color change when friends Tweet theirs. 

Desktop Painter requires macOS 10.6.6 or higher. It costs $0.99 and is available at the Mac App Store.
