    Wallpaper? Swish is probably not a good
    choice. Swish lets you create animations
    and export in SWF (flashplugin) format.
    Wallpapers are usually in some image
    format such as jpeg.

    Adobe Photoshop is one of the best image
    editor/creator software out there. You
    might want to take a look.

    Wallpaper

    THere are programs that let you convert swf to scr files, to make screensavers, and other programs to convert swf to gif, avi, etc... If you have designed something you really like in swish what you can do to make a wallpaper is download a free image editing uility called irfranview. http://www.irfranview.com

    You then play your swf file in the flash player and do a screen capture and save it as a JPG or GIF, with Irfranview, and then let Irfanview set it as desktop wallpaper or save it to your computer and set the wallpaper thru your computer.

    I have done this myself! In fact, when I make a client's website and they really like their site, they want it as their desktop wallpaper, and sometimes as a screensaver, take a look at http://www.transfercare-direct.com I made both wallpaper and screensaver for their desktop without the text! and they LOVE IT!
