 History
The initial idea for this widget belong to a good friend, Viorel Catusanu, who wanted to have a photo of his daughter, Alexandra, on his desktop, but did not want to fill the whole screen with her face using a wallpaper... So, I opened up the Notepad text editor, took a few looks in the Yahoo! Widgets Manual, and
in a few hours version 1.0 beta was in the hands of my friend!... Two versions later, I uploaded the widget in the official Yahoo! Widgets Gallery. The rest is history...

Now, your childs and love ones can smile to you from the corner of your desktop, reminding you that love is all around! Or, you can use a photo of your favorite pet, car, landscape, artwork, superstar, or what ever you want, even webcams feeds from the internet, to lighten up your day!
Rotate it, zoom it and move it across screen as you please. Change the border model and color to match your wallpaper or your mood. Use fastening devices like pins, magnets and tapes to further customize it's appearance. You can also apply color effects and overlay textures to enhance the look of the image as you desire...
And, above all, keep in mind that the beauty of this widget is comming from YOUR picture!... Enjoy!
 Version 1.0 beta private release - November 09, 2006 
+ browse for photo;
+ rotation (minim -15, maxim 15);
+ zoom (minim 50%, maxim 100% - see note* below)
+ border color and width;
+ antialias (enhanced edges if rotation is not 0);

*note: Large pictures are scaled down before compiling zoom preference. "Large" means a picture with a width or height bigger than half of the screen width or height. 100% refers to the size after this scaling. Pictures with smaller dimensions are not scaled down, so 100% is the original size in this case...
