    Since Vista doesn't support any Active Desktop-like features (like XP), it's currently not possible to display separate images on all your screens...you end up having to look at the same image on all your displays.



    I've written an app called Vistas that allows you to to define images for each display or you can select 1 image and panoramic it (stretch it across all displays).



    Once you have a desktop defined, Vistas allows you to save it to a profile (*.vistas) so you can setup other desktops to save to profiles for easier loading later.



    Full details, source, and binaries can be found here: http://www.shrum.net/code/vistas



    Here are a couple of my desktops using Vistas:

    Great addition for multimonitor users. There is also program called UltraMon, which allows to use different backgrounds on each monitor, it also does alot more including taskbar on secondary monitor, etc.
