Maybe it is just my impression, but screensavers seem to have lost much of their popularity in recent years. We have already discussed that screensavers do not really save the screen from burn-ins anymore, and that they are more an aesthetic choice nowadays.
The new program released as part of Donation Coder's Nany 2012 event is a screensaver creation software for the Windows operating system. It offers to create screensavers for distribution that have the same functionality as screensavers created with Multi Photo Quotes.
You configure the screensaver in four configuration steps after program start. The first requires you to enter basic information about the screensaver. This includes the author and ID name, label and optional information like the screen saver web page url or pre- and post-installation messages.
You are then asked to add image files from the local computer via drag and drop. These images are then displayed in rotation when the screensaver is activated on the system.
You may then enter text quotes that are displayed alongside the selected images. Quotes can be added directly in the program window. This step in the creation process is optional.
Credits can be added in the final step of the configuration phase. These credits are shown in the ScreenSaver configuration dialog.
A click on build screensaver now creates the new screensaver file and saves it into a My Documents folder on the system.
The screensaver is saved as an executable file, ideal for distribution. You can use the program to create screensavers for your own computer, or for distribution to family members, colleagues and even software repositories that accept screensavers.
Multi Photo Quotes Builder is compatible with all recent 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the Microsoft Windows operating system (from XP on).
