View Full Version : Creating screensavers

Can anyone out there give me some tips on creating your own
screensavers? Do you have to have special software for this like I've heard some people say, etc? In case there's some software already on my computer that you can use to do this with, I'll let you know that I have Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Publisher, and Printmaster. What I wanted to do was to make one using pictures of my daughters (and from other pictures). Even as far as using pictures to create a screensaver-I'd imagine I'd have to scan it first or something? I'd appreciate any help anyone can give. I still don't know a lot about the creative things you can do with a computer since I use mine mostly for the internet, Word, Excel, etc. I have learned some things, though. A ways back 9 Ball Girl helped me figure out about getting a picture (the tigger pictures) onto a post. Thanks 9 Ball Girl-you were a lot of help and I think I've got that down pretty good now.

its pretty easy to create your own screen saver, I used this one with a Pool theme I created and borrowed. very cool its freeware so you do not need to pay for it, but you may need to register it...

Picture and Sound Show installs like any other screensaver that can be accessed by right clicking on your desktop, clicking on properties and then selecting the "Screensaver" tab. You then select the "Picture and Sound Show" screensaver from the drop down. Then click on the "Settings" button to open up the program options. Now you can control what pictures are included in the screensaver, how fast and how often they are transitioned, what sounds are used, the background color, how you exit the screensaver and a lot more.

Good luck /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
