Just Relaxing is a simple little utility that creates and displays various themes that consist of desktop wallpapers and associated sounds. For example, the ocean theme has pictures of beach scenes and you can add your own sounds of the beach, like kids playing in the sand or waves crashing on the beach, seagulls flying in the air, whatever you can think of to go with the theme.

The program has the option of being able to have the wallpaper change according to a set time frame (eg 5 minutes). There also is an option to have the computer play the sounds according to a different time frame (eg 20 seconds). So, for example, you could set the program up to change the wallpaper every twenty minutes and play the sounds every minute (60 seconds)..

One good feature of the program is that you can create your own themes by gathering some images and sounds and adding them to the program. This means that you could take your camera out, around where you live and get some pictures of the local scenery, or pictures of your favorite places and put them on your computer.

Registering the shareware version makes it possible to add new themes, although you can add or remove images in both versions. The sound list also becomes available when registered. Overall this is a great program.

Now where was that fishing rod?....
