Visage allows you to easily and safely customize the appearance of your Mac. The preference pane's simple interface contains several tabs, each of which will help you customize a different part of your Mac. You can run screen savers as your desktop background, customize your login panel, personalize system alerts, and more! Visage keeps track of Apple's default settings for every customization, so you can easily switch back to the original settings at any time.
Desktop Effects: The first tab allows you to run screen savers in the background on your desktop while you work. Visage remembers your favorite 'desktop effects' and can automatically rotate among them at a designated time interval. Visage lets you control the CPU usage of the effects and can even start desktop effects automatically at login.
Login Background: The second tab lets you use any jpeg image as the background image of your login screen. Visage can even select a random image from your collection so that you will see a different background every time you log out!
Login Panel: The third tab allows you to customize the login panel itself. You may use your own images in place of the Apple logo and 'Mac OS X' image. As always, Visage maintains a collection of your favorite images so that you can quickly and easily change Between them. You may also display a textual banner, which is useful for organizations that wish to display a message to all users prior to login.
Personal Alerts: The fourth tab lets you personalize system alerts. You can have alerts such as the shut down confirmation say your name or any other phrase!
If you like to personalize your Mac, Visage is an essential Tool!!
