Windows 7 different background images for dual monitor setting

I'm using Windows 7 and I've two monitors.

I'm extending the displays. When I change the desktop wallpaper, it gets applied to both the display screens. Is their a way to segregate the screens so that I can display different desktop wallpapers on each display screen??

the free version of display fusion let's you do this http://www.displayfusion.com/

I'm not sure of an easy way to do it without software though.

UltraMon also does this, but it's paid. There is NO way to do it without third-party software. –  Shinrai May 5 '11 at 16:59
    
@Shinrai Yes you can, by tiling the image. –  MBraedley May 5 '11 at 17:37
    
@MBraedley - how exactly does that get you "different desktop wallpapers on each display screen"? –  Shinrai May 5 '11 at 17:44
    
@Shinrai Take your two images and stitch them together, set that as the background, and set windows to tile the image. I've done just that a few minutes ago. –  MBraedley May 5 '11 at 17:46
    
@MBraedley - Well, sure, but you didn't give that impression when you responded. Also that can be a pain, especially if you have more than two displays, or if they're different resolutions, or if they're not aligned in a perfect left to right rectangle...and it still requires 3rd oarty software (somehow I doubt you want to use Paint for this). :) I don't think that's what the OP had in mind. –  Shinrai May 5 '11 at 17:54
