I have this photo that is currently saved in Corel Wordperfect.  I want to make it a screen saver file.  How do I get it to come up in the screen saver pick box?  I converted it to a .bmp file and saved it to c:windows\system\reese.scr, but I still don't see it when I go to desktop properties, screensaver?  What am I doing wrong?

You need to use a screen saver creation tool to add pics to the screen savers. second,as far as my understanding goes, have you installed the SS properly..?
Is it not showing up in the display panel?
Or is it that when you select the SS, It doesnot run, or gives a blank screen..?

All you need to do is save is as a .bmp file in that location then open that .bmp file with paint.  Then select file, and set as wallpaper.

I believe that Raheelrambo is correct.  You need a software package to do this.  Here are a couple of links to some shareware packages that should work for you.

If you saved it as a BMP, You saved it in the wrong place. Save it in c:\windows and then you will see it. It's called a background, not a screensaver. :-) If it's just a photo, You can only use it as a background.

The whole idea of a screen saver is so that the
image doen't burn your monitor Or you will have
a permanent image on your monitor screen.
If do use an application to show the bmp as a
screen saver, make sure it moves or changes bmps.
This use to be a big problem with old monitors,
then the problem diminished, and the last I heard
it's back again. But don't take chances with monitor burn.
Monitors are expensive.
Best to use bmps as wallpaper.
