A small utility that splits an image into two images for use with dual monitor wallpaper setups.

Dual monitors. From the very first time that I used Turbo C to step through my code on a secondary monochrome monitor, while I watched Windows redraw my application in the main display, I have been hooked on the benifits of dual screen displays.

PicSplitter is a small application that takes a single image, and creates two images by splitting the original.


Not a lot of high tech found here. I thought that it might be nice to share this little application with the world.

Points of Interest

This version was build using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 beta 2. Based on all the negative reaction to the RTM version of VS2005, my company has adopted a "Thanks, but no thanks." attitude to VS2005. The code should be almost cut-paste compatable with VS2003 and the RTM version, however.

As a soap box aside, I wish that Microsoft had designed the My namespace with multiple monitor support. It would have been to nice to add the following lines of code...

    My.Computer.Screens(0).Background = "left.jpg"
    My.Computer.Screens(1).Background = "right.jpg"
