    I have a bunch of pics I want to use to create a slideshow screen saver. How can I do it? Do I need a special program?

    Thanks!

    What OS are your running? XP has an option to pull images from your "My Pictures" folder to use in the screen saver.

    Cameron, I have Windows XP. Where would I find this option?

    You could also use Webshots. You can set the cycle to change pictures every second up to 120 seconds and you can use it to change your wallpaper every 15 minutes. You can download it here .

    As for using XP, right click on the desktop, go into Properties, and in the screensaver drop down box, choose My Pictures Slideshow. Use the settings to control how often you want the picture to cycle.

    Todd, just right click on your desktop, click properties, then Screen Savers tab. From the drop down box, choose My Pictures Screensaver, and use the settings to choose the folder and other things regarding the screen saver.

    Windows 98 or before doesnt come with a slideshow screensaver. Windows ( ME ) Millenium does. That is what I use.

    But if you go to www.download.com there is a few free slideshow screensavers that you can use.
