*** Warning: this is a Widget, not a regular application and cannot be started as such - please read explanation at the end if in doubt.

Theme designers: make your screen designs dynamic! Add and arrange MC-Photo widgets, assign actions to them, set captions, set photo filters to blend photos into your theme look and feel, configure photo source for each widget to reflect it's purpose and select change interval. You can have fully functional theme that never looks the same but is always beautiful and understandable!

Photos can be displayed as:
■ Classic - one photo in a frame
■ Collage - several photos arranged in a collage

Photos can be selected by:
■ 500px categories
■ 500px user, user following, user favorites
■ 500px author name
■ Tags (500px)
■ Current weather at your location (500px)
■ Color (500px)
■ Flickr (latest interesting photos)
■ DeviantART
■ WikiArt
■ Panoramio (around you)
■ Instagram (popular or around you)
■ Local albums

Photos can be changed at a user selected interval.

Use Actions to start chosen application when you tap the widget. (Tap in the vertical middle to show Widget Options)

Use Caption to describe widget contents or selected action.

Use colored frames and photo filters to blend photos into you current home screen look and feel.

You can also save and load complete widget settings (bear in mind those are just internal settings, widget size and position is managed by launcher application).

Widget is not a regular android application and cannot be found in Application Drawer with other applications. Depending on your Launcher and Android version there are usually two options to add widget to a home screen:
1) App drawer -> Widgets Tab -> MC-Photo Widget AxB -> Drag it to home screen -> Configure options
2) Long click on home screen -> Widgets -> MC-Photo Widget AxB -> Configure options

If your launcher doesn't support widget re-sizing select one of the sizes (AxB cells in home screen grid) for best fit to your design.

Some new versions can invalidate your current widgets. We will keep such changes at minimum but when it happens you may need to remove and add widgets again.

    GS4 user here. One of the best pic framing apps here. Brilliant multiple randomized frame options. Gives almost a parallax feel to some odd my pics. Keep it up, phase don't guys are on to something special!

    Best photo widget application. But there is one effect that less is transparent photo. Let the photos as blend with the background.

    This widget was just what I was looking for: a photo widget that could display an entire album at once. It worked fine when I set everything in for the first time, but then, when I changed the screen orientation, the widget crashed with no way to fix it! Then I tried to display the album as individual images, but that didn't work as it picks any image from the album each time. Disappointing.

    Foreground: 569 KB Background: 4.11 GB In a span of 12 days (Sept 1-13) CHECK YOUR DATA USAGE HISTORY IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IT. I want to know what you uploaded, because it definitely didn't download anything.

    Great decoration, wonderful and has many cool features. Not a good ui however. It would be nice if it could display time, weather, or location info within the widget. The preview for some filters appears to be broken unfortunately.

    Moved my photo album via file manager, now the widget uses flickr no matter what I do (even moving the folder back, uninstalling/reinstalling, rebooting, renaming, etc doesn't help.) Won't display photos from other folders either! Would love to see a fix as this is an otherwise great app.
