Chapter 6. Sharing Photos > Creating a Screen Saver

Creating a Screen Saver

The Desktop button in iPhoto 2 does double duty, not just putting one or more photos on your Desktop, but also setting them as your screen saver.

To create a screen saver:

1.
With more than one or no photos selected, click the Desktop button.

iPhoto displays the Screen Effects dialog.

2.
Either leave the pop-up menu set to Current Selection, or choose an album from it (Figure 6.53), and then click OK to save your selection and close the dialog.

Figure 6.53. In the Screen Effects dialog, choose an album to use for your screen saver and click OK. You can also click Screen Effects Preferences to open the Screen Effects preferences pane.


iPhoto sets Mac OS X’s Picture Folder screen saver to use the selected photos or album. The next time your screen saver kicks in, you’ll see it displaying those photos.
