Paralys

Not in windows nativly, however, it can be done when using either AMD's or nVidia's desktop extension software.

Are either of those free or is there some sort of freeware that does the same thing?

Edit: I have Hydravision which I believe should do the same thing but not sure how to make it do it.

set a picture as a web item and drag it to the second monitor. right click on desktop<properties<desktop<customize desktop<web<new<then whatever picture you want

...and watch your PC grind to a halt? Active Desktop was one of Microsoft's shittyest ideas.

I belive ATI's muti-monitor software hydravision has no feature for setting two DIFFRENT wallpapers. I couldn't find anything in the documentation I have infront of me and last time I used it I remember being fustrated in not being able to do the same. I belive muti-desk is the closest your going to get useing hydravision, but i know its not what you are looking for.

Try MUBIX's solution its what I ended up doing.

I gota agree with mobix that Photoshop is the way to go for something like this. Don't get me wrong I love open_source/free software, like gimp, and it is ok, but I find it isnt as intuative or as funcitonal as Photoshop. MAybe after a few more versions it will be developed to that level.

Nah, Adobe are like drug pushers. You can sample it for "free" but when you want to start using it you have to drop some serious cash. Gimps an excellent image editor, and you can do loads with it, but at the end of the day Photoshop is the better image editor, and its reflected in the price tag.

However, CinePaint looks damn interesting.
