    I'am running Win 7 & using their screen saver program, I use my own pictures, but I cant seem to control the size on the screen, does not make any difference how I size the pictures they do their own thing. They come on the screen to large in some cases. Now I use the same pictures in my Desktop and they size just like I want them to. If a picture is grainy at the lager format I reduce its size so in the Desktop they are clear, not so in the SS. Again they are the same file & I control their size in the file.. Can anything be done?

    I've used this free program to make a slideshow and screensaver :- http://www.gphotoshow.com/gpshow_free.htm#.VOGIAf_fQZg

    It can automatically resize the pictures, has some nice transitions between pictures and is quite easy to use.

    I used it on a digital photo frame I made from an old laptop, it's perfect for that.

    Hope you like it. They have a 'Pro' version you have to pay for but I think you'll find the free one is good enough, I did.

    EDIT : bear in mind that if you start with a small size and/or low resolution photo it will look poor if it's made to fit the whole screen.

    That is my problem, low res photos and I cant keep them small for some reason they want to fill the screen as they have a mind of their own so they look like ****. In my Desktop I can keep them small so they look good but the SS seems to do its own thing even though they are the same file & same size as the desktop. So this program should do the trick. Thanks
