Just simple perfection!

Hey, speaking of reflections...!?... Would be very cool if it had an OPTION to show a reflection like your widget sample shot above.

Ya, that would be MUCH better.
Also, a slideshow feature (directing the viewer to search through a folder) would be ideal.

I will hold my rating until the next version.

I will work on that, now! I have completed a new version with a backside, but will update it once I get an auto-resize feautre working.

I would like to get it to auto-resize to fit the ratio of the picture, so wider or taller pictures aren't crushed.

I am working on the reflection, but I don't know how I would go about having it change to reflect the current picture. I guess I could use some javascript and css code to have it flipped over and less opaque, but I don't know how well that will work. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You can use quartz.....

Check out the Apple templates fro iMovie 06 (white and black), they have shadows underneath. Maybe you can utilize that?

Would be nice to be able to paste from clipboard. I don't know whether or not this is possible.

I love this widget. Thanx! But, to the author, do you think you can update it so the frame can be made larger. I have a picture I want to view on the dashboard that just doesn't look right in the size provided (a picture of a model). Either way, cool widget!

Could this be updated so that you could have several frames with different pictures? I have three, and whenever I restart Mac OS (happens a lot to me) I get the same picture in all three.

Do you have to pic every picture individually, or can you just set it to display a directory with all subdirectories?
