The wallpapers and Dreams (animated wallpaper) galleries have categories so you can view certain types of wallpapers that you are looking for. These categories haven't been updated in a long time, and it was certainly due for a refresh for a more modern and updated gallery. Some gallery categories were not ever really used or relevant, so we removed some and added quite a few to each section for an expanded range of wallpaper choices. With the added integration of some WinCustomize galleries ...

One of my favorite things about using animated wallpapers with DeskScapes is the relaxing scenes I can have right on my Windows desktop.

The best thing is we have a ton of those types of animated wallpapers here on WinCus...
