There’s the Dock. Desktop wallpaper. And a few settings here and there (transparency, screensaver, etc), but the Mac isn’t too big on being anything more than Apple wants the Mac to be. Desktop wallpaper is about it, but thankfully there are plenty of choices for images and photos to plunk down behind all the open app windows on your Mac.
Artful comes with up to 68,000 public domain art, from rococo to cubism to impressionism and more. Select which pieces of art should decorate your Mac’s Desktop wallpaper with just a few clicks. Nice, right?
You could spend days sorting through all the 68,000 works of art, but fortunately Artful provides search, sort, and filter tools; search by artist, genre, medium, style or technique to narrow down the options.
One problem you’ll notice right away about Artful’s artistic and classic selections is the size. Amazingly, artists from the past didn’t know the Mac’s screen dimensions so they simply painted their artwork on canvas of whatever size was available.
Artful has a SmartArtDisplay function with scales each work of art and makes it fit perfectly in the center of the Mac’s screen, and supplies a background that complements the art itself.
Artful as an app isn’t free but it’s worth it just for the collection of art itself.
