I found a neat new toy for your Yosemite box. You have to have a 2009 or newer Mac running OS X 10.9 or newer. It’s got to have 4 GB RAM and 2 GB Hard Drive space. What is it???
A neat new Mac app called Magic Window – It loads Yosemite wallpapers that slowly change over time. You’ll see sunrises, sunsets, and clear days. It includes Half Dome, El Capitan and the other stellar shots.
It comes to us from LA based Jetson Creative. They are the world’s largest provider of virtual windows and views.
What’s the big deal? You probably have gigabytes of Yosemite photos. Their software that can do time lapse photography. Each wallpaper is made from over 1,000 individual images that are blended together and replayed slowly on the desktop. This creates the effect of the image slowly changing over time, as if you were looking out a window. The speed of playback can be adjusted from near still to quick to fit individual tastes. The goal is to provide relaxation without distracting from day-to-day work.
Their PR Dept says that it comes with::
* 18 motion wallpapers
* A screen saver that brings views to the foreground when you aren’t working
* Four color effects to enhance the views
* Variable five speed control enables speed of motion to be set
The price? $2.99 in the Mac App Store in the Entertainment category.
