Wallcast :

This is a combination of  online service and a software. You need to register with WallCast and upload images. The uploaded images are then downloaded on your computer but instead of just changing you get a wall with images you uploaded. It creates a beautiful collage of all the photos for which you can have a different theme.

The only drawback is that it does not integrate with any online service or images on your desktop. The good thing is the wallpaper stays back even if you exit the program so you can very well take a screenshot and save it with other applications.
