    Haha, all the text on the phone in the video is German, all the text to the left is in English. Might as well have made it in German :)

    Hey, please give the ability to name the file before or during, saving the created file. Also can the ability to have horizontal and/or multiple gradients added? multiple overlays? :)

    Ohhhh, what about even a slider that could change from 0 (vertical gradient) to 90 (horizontal) and everything in between.

    OK, put "save as" on the list. But the list is long. xD

    Working right now on extended gradient functions!

    Multiple overlays are not coming anytime soon, sorry. I just dont have enough time to investigate that deep enough. But this is a logical next step, so Ill keep an eye on this idea. ;-)

    Workaround: Create an overlayed picture and save it to gallery, then choose it as overlay. I know this is pretty inconvenient, so there will be an option to save pictures inside the app for faster selection. Keeping multiple layers editable is currently not realizeable for me. :-/

    This is my current backround; relative clean like an accent color but still have the parallax effect.
    I've made first the the cyan overlayed background (pic 1). Then started a second background with blue solid as base and pic1 as overlay.

    Working right now on this xD Only vertical / horizontal was never an option! Gradient angle needs to be adjustable. ;-)

    Hm... slider seems to be a better idea then buttons (left / right). Have to think about it.

    Just a idea.
    Dont know if its possible in the WP ecosystem, but...........
    Is it possible to let the background change on preset times, just like the windows desktop o.s.?
    So that automaticly change the pic in lets say every hour or so

    As I read in some threads, there is no API to do this.

    Finally Update 1.2.0.0 is ready to download...

    Whats new?
    • Extended Gradient Options (Stage 1)
    • Daily Bing Image downloader (Stage 1)
    • App is not free anymore. Trial version is fully working except of saving. (affects only new downloads)


    Extended gradient Options:
    • Three additional colors
    • Rotation (relative angle)


    Well, yes, no slider to change the rotation value. This is due to the small amount of space and 360 levels of value. I tested the slider for a few days and it was just terrible to use. It works much better with two buttons (fixed steps @ 15). For smaller changes just change the number in the TextBox.

    Next is the daily bing image downloader, also stage 1, so only the US picture will be downloaded. More options on request!

    Lets create some new backrounds ;-)

    Hey guys, today i want to show you how to change the color of an existing background image from your gallery.

    changecolor1.jpg

    1. Start Background Designer and go to "Editor-Mode" (left button in AppBar)
    2. While in "Editor-Mode" go to "Overlays"
    3. Choose your Picture from Gallery (you can adjust the Position and resize it by tapping the 2 gearing wheels located on middle right)
    4. (Just showing the Overlay-Settings)
    5. Adjust Effect-Level and BlendMode (e.g. Hardlight)
    6. Change back to "Bases" and choose your favorite color
    7. Works also with gradients
    8. Go back to "Preview-Mode" with Windows Phone Back-Key and save it to your gallery by tapping the right button in the AppBar *done*


    Pretty simple, isn't it?
