If you are like me, then you don’t want to waste time when it comes to creating a decent slideshow screen saver for your PC. Sure there are some pricey applications out there that you can buy for displaying your favorite pictures in a slideshow as your screen saver. Did you know there are a few ways that you can do this for FREE?

One application that I use for free is Google Photos Screensaver which is included in the Picasa program. If you install the free Picasa application, then you will have an option to setup a Google Photos Screensaver. After it is installed, you can either select your own photos from Picasa, an online Web Album, photos from public sits or your own personal photos located on your computer. The best part of this screen saver app is that it has dual monitor support meaning it will display a different image on each monitor simultaneously. Visual effects can also be changed including Pan, Zoom, Wipe, Collage, Push and others. This is by far one of the better screen saver options that you can find for free and customize to your likings.

Flickr also has a nice screen saver option for free. The tool is called Flickr.NET Screensaver. If you download the small application, then you will be able to configure it similar to Picasa’s Google Photos Screensaver.

There are other ways of customizing a slideshow screen saver but have proven to be much more difficult. One of those ways is using Flash via the app InstantStorm. Picasa and Flickr provide modern options that are fully compatible with all versions of Windows including Windows 7.
