Multi-monitor wallpaper creator.

Multi-monitor wallpaper creator is a small windows application used to quickly create wallpapers for multiple monitors.
You can stretch images over multiple screen of different resolutions while maintaining the picture.

The program is written in C++ and has a custom written UI. It makes use of windows and Direct2D libraries.

This is a personal project I started because I have a lot of monitors and didn't found a simplistic program for my specific uses.

Auto exporting images will save them as:

Make selections of one or multiple monitors.
Apply images or solid colors to selections.
Stretch images with multiple methods.
Mask out monitor area from selection.


There are four areas in this program: Selection, Edit buttons, Function buttons and Layers.


Here you select your monitors by either clicking the rectangles with your screen position or the name of your monitor.
Monitors without a specific driver will appear as 'Generic PnP Monitor' or another default name.

The program is written in C++ and made using Visual Studio.
Windows and Direct2D libraries are used making this a windows-only application.

The user interface is custom written with the aim of it being easy and in a certain way scalable.
I wrote the user interface myself as a challenge.

Everything in the window is drawn by Direct2D.
When you export a wallpaper the image is calculated pixel by pixel and not drawn by Direct2D.
This method makes it impossible to have colors influence the border of another monitor.
