Post Screensavers

Hi,

Does anyone know of a good freeware screensaver program that I can use with my Win 2000 OS?? I would like to use my own custom pictures for the screensavers. The program I have now shows my pictures really crappy. The resolution seems to be really poor.

Thanks,

greenda4

Are the images being "upsized" to full screen? If so, that will cause the pictures to look somewhat pixelated (blocky). Probably not the fault of your screensaver.

Thanks for replying. Yes they are being upsized to full screen, but on another computer using the 'My pictures' Screensaver option in Win XP, the photos look great on a 17" monitor. The only difference with this computer is that it has Win 2000 and it does not have a 'My Pictures' option for screensavers, so I downloaded a program from the web and it shows the pictures crappy.

Thanks,

ahh..

I thought you were using a screensaver that was built into Windows.


How about this?

Free, works with Win2k, and has good user reviews.

You might take a look at www.webshots.com. Very good program that you can customize to display your own photos (I am currently running pics from our Trip to Yosemite this summer) and control the cycle time, etc. Other advantage is you can download free pics from the site.
