Is there any way I can show multiple photos on my desktop for wallpaper.

I don't think it's built in to XP (I don't have Vista) but you can combine them into a single image in the form of a collage as a workaround.

Yes - open each of the photos you want to use, size them so that they fit along-side and/or above each other in whatever layout you require on your desktop. When your desktop is fully covered with photos, simply take a Screenshot using FastStone Capture. The screenshot will then appear in your My Pictures and you can choose to use it as Wallpaper.

Technotiger Sorry I don't quite understand your method. Which program do I have to use.

You could stitch photos in a photo editing program then save as a new file to use as wallpaper

If you don't have a phot editing program you can try Picasa from the ubiquitous Google. here's a link to guide you through a collage using the program click here

Oh and you might need to save picture as a .bmp file for wallpaer depending on your version of Windoze

Open a new Word document in landscape. Create a table with 1 row 2 columns.
Put your cursor in the left cell you have created & then insert the first photograph. Adjust the photo size with your mouse and the shift key. Now put your cursor in the right cell and do the same with the other photograph.
