Eyes’ Thanks

Staring at a computer screen for hours is not good for your eyes, so Eyes’ Thanks protect them: the app displays a full-screen image on your desktop at regular intervals, along with an optional message, reminding you to take a break.

Download for Windows (portable)

See Github Releases Page.

Background images

While some cool backgrounds can be generated on-the-fly, you can provide a more extensive gallery stored locally. One of the images in the user-defined folder will be displayed in full-screen mode for the configured duration, but you can cancel the break if you just can’t afford to interrupt your current activity.

Multiple monitors system

It supports multiple monitors system, making it possible to display wide pictures across all your monitors.

Works with any monitor setup

If you sometimes switch between two displays with different aspect ratios (or even between two workplace with different sets of displays), you can set up an alternative pictures folder that the program should use whenever aspect ratios changed.

For example, if sometimes you disconnect your FullHD notebook from your FullHD monitor, put wide (3860×1080) pictures to “pictures folder” and FullHD (1920×1080) pictures to “alternative pictures folder”. So, a laptop is connected to a monitor — the app uses wide pictures folder, a laptop isn’t connected anywhere — the app uses FullHD pictures folder.

Hi, can I use this software commercially ?
Answer to Manfred: No, this software is distrubuted under GPL3, that mean it is copylefted, but you could donate.

Замечательная программа!!! Просто, элегантно, полезно для глаз. Перебрал с дюжину помидорных таймеров и подобных программ — эта лучшая.
