How to set daily Bing images as Desktop Wallpapers
Its true that Bing is gaining market share slowly and also, many of us likes those beautiful Bing Background Photos. Why not set them as your Wallpapers which will change automatically?
Daily Bing search engine images consist of awesome collection of photos from amazing nature photos to holiday sensitive events. If you too don’t care (like me) or really don’t have time to change desktop wallpaper then you can use this great feature in Windows 7 to grab images via RSS feed and set them as wallpapers.
How to Set Bing Images as Daily Desktop Wallpapers
- Download file Bing.theme (Right Click “Save as”)
- Double Click the downloaded Theme File.
- Select Download Attachments option so that Images are downloaded automatically when Bing RSS updates.
- Done! You can select from the available images to show and configure Picture Position.
Select the picture position according to your choice though choosing center would spoil the show completely. If you feel that the quality of images are not so great or you are not satisfied, using Fit might help you. The image duration can be set as per your wish of frequency to have a new wallpaper on your desktop.[alert-warning] Wallpaper Quality is not up to the mark.

Setting up Aero Transparency with Bing Theme
Once the theme is applied you can also play with various other features to customize it further. To increase the Aero transparency with this theme, click on Windows Color tab present at bottom on the theme window.
Now select the aero color of your choice and check on Enable transparency. One you have done so, you can reduce the color intensity to minimum to have maximum transparency on windows 7 taskbar and other menus. You can also change the aero color automatically with help of AeroWallpaperChanger. This application will change aero color depending on the color of the present desktop background.[alert-success] AeroWallpaperChanger is a great combo with this theme [/alert-success]
Is it really worthy to use Bing Theme?
Well, depends on what you want. If you desire things to be dynamic then its perfect for you. But the personal opinion says that the quality of wallpapers are really not up to the standards. On a laptop screen you can suffice using Fit positioning but it will be a blizzard on big Displays. In such circumstances you can alternatively try to Set Desktop Backgrounds to Flickr, Picasa, Facebook Album.[alert-announce] To disable the theme, just right click on desktop and go to Personalize. Once you are there change the theme to anything you like. Done [/alert-announce]
