Wallpaper Program

Recent versionsof SMSQ/E from about version 3.00 feature high colour and high resolution screens along with the new Window Manager. This makes them very suitable for displaying colourful and attractive background images behind your program windows.
The downside of using wallpaper on a high-colour system is the amount of memory it takes. (...)

Thanks Dilwyn for automating the wallpaper process.

Just a word about memory and compressed images.
As other programs or other OSes appear to put compressed images straight to the screen, I suspect they all need to keep a final uncompressed version in memory to work. The space demands may go unnoticed as other systems have more RAM to play with.
This is also true for compressed sprites that WMAN2 processes directly.
Compressing _pic or _scr files is feasible but it's mostly WIN space that is won.
