I want to make a screensaver using personal pictures.  I don't have any idea what code I would use to scroll through the images, one by one, using a timer.  Does anyone know how to do this??  I have searched and searched for examples using images instead of drawing lines to no avail!  Thanks!

Either email me ( mknickelbein@gsls.com ) for the code (in VB1 format) or just go to this place:  http://members.xoom.com/saverman/slideshow.html  
It offers exactly what you are trying to make.  It is what I use.  It is freeware.  Really nice program.

I have a VB4 screensaver application that runs a slide show.  It is very simple and easy to understand.  I have created a much simplified version of my program so that I could send it to Microsoft support when I was trying to get a technical problem solved. It is a small zip file that I can send as an email attachment.  You may find it useful.
