Turn any picture into YoWindow landscape

Big news!
Now you can turn any picture into YoWindow landscape!

Make sure have the latest build of YoWindow installed.
Download it here:
http://yowindow.com/download.shtml

A regular picture looks amazing when the sky is replaced with YoWindow living sky.
This is a picture of Rome Colosseum we have found on Flickr.

This is the same picture added to YoWindow.
We have removed the sky from the original picture to replace it with YoWindow sky.
Scroll the time to experience different light and weather conditions.
Click the picture to open it in YoWindow online.

You know what?
Now you can create a landscape like this yourself.
From your own picture, taken with your camera.
Follow our tutorial explaining how to turn a regular picture into YoWindow landscape.

There are many live-sky landscapes created for YoWindow by our friendly community.
The landscapes are made from real photos taken around the world.
Browse through our Landscape Collection.
We wish you to find the landscape of your dreams :)

try doing a search on the internet: gimp, transparent background.
However open the image and right click, then choose levels, transparency, set the alpha channel, then select with the magic wand at the sky and then edit and cut ...
try to see this video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sS2HqgVE ... re=related

I hope it can help you :)

This is such a cool feature! I was thinking about trying it, now I think I'm gonna go for it for sure! I have a lot of great ideas for backgrounds I would like to do. I even have an idea to use these images essentially as a screen saver on my lg led tv. I was thinking that I could accomplish this by running the video output to one of the aux ins, and switch to that channel when I'm not watching television. It might sound silly, but I think it would be pretty neat. Thank you very much for this very informative post!
