Screen Saver Picture Slideshows

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the name of some software for displaying photo slideshows on your screen saver? I used to have Desktop Webshots, but a coworker said he had something that read directly from a file on his computer, versus having to upload to the computer.

Anyone have any recommendations?

I'm pretty sure you can do that with Vista.

I'm pretty sure in the screen saver settings of XP you can. I'm using Vista right now so can't verify. If you go to microsoft.com/support and type in your question you should get your answer.

For XP, go the the control panel and open the Display. Select the tab in the Display Properties for the screen saver. From the screen saver pull-down menu, select My Picture Slideshow. Once My Picture Slideshow has been selected, you set the folder and view options by clicking settings.

    • Switched up my pick at the last second in bucket A and put Wheeler in there. Great ledge fisherman and sounds like this dude puts in more time on the water then any other angler out there.   A. Wheeler B. Evers C. Tharp D. Herren E. Omori   Sounds like the bite has been super tough. Will be interesting to see how it goes. 
    • They are drumming like crazy now. In fact, I even hear them at night. My wife said when she was a teenager growing up in rural Wisconsin, she always thought that drumming sound was the nearby powerstation.    
    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
