My Pictures 3D is a 3D screensaver that offers virtual tours through different environments such as castles, exhibitions and a space station showing pictures that you have selected on the walls. This means that you can create a very unique screensaver by adding pictures of the last holiday, anniversary or family meeting for instance which are then shown while you are moving through the halls of the selected virtual location.
Installation and configuration is a matter of seconds. Just download My Pictures 3D and install it on your computer. Open the configuration afterwards, select a virtual tour and add pictures from your hard drive to it. Additional tours can be downloaded and installed from the developers homepage, all free of charge of course.
Among the tours are Christmas, Cathedral, Pyramid or Art galleries that you can download and load into the program if you do not like the default tours the program ships with.
Users can add mp3 sounds as well to make the experience even more realistic. Several other options include picture quality settings and walker speed and height.
I suggest you test the settings after selecting the virtual tour and adding pictures by right-clicking your desktop, selecting Properties and clicking on the Scree Saver tab in the menu. Click on the preview button in that menu and don't move the mouse afterwards. The virtual tour should start and you can check if everything looks like it should.
Please note that the last version of the application has been released years ago. While that does not make the program incompatible right away with newer versions of Windows, it at least means that it is likely that it won't receive any new updates.
You can still download and install the picture gallery screensaver and all galleries from the developer website.
