I take it you want a free program? If so, take a look at  Flash Screensaver Creator here:

If you're willing to pay a small fee (but you can trial it first if you want), then look at the ones you can get from here:

MyScreensaver gets a fair amount of attention as being a popular "screensaver maker"

If anyone knows of a real free option Id be interested to know.

Most otf the free ones, such as the junglemetal one above are actually either trials only, or they splash unregistered over them.

Why these people think people will pay for a screensaver creator baffles me.....

Freeware Screensaver Creators:

A free screen saver. Includes twenty-two high resolution photographs of astonishingly beautiful scenes from the outdoors. When you tire of SceneSaver's included images use your own!

Use any directory on your hard drive as a slideshow screensaver (Installs as a screensaver - use the screensaver settings to select the directory and options).

Create and distribute your own slideshow screensavers (Now fully XP compatible).

Nostalgic Screensaver  
A screensaver that crossfades and zooms between pictures on your hard drive very much like a biography TV program and making you feel nostalgic! By default it will use the images in your My Pictures folder but you can use the control panel to tell it a different folder to use.

HBT AVI Screen Saver
It allows you to display your favourite AVI files as a screen saver on your PC. You will see it immediately shown within the available screensavers listbox. When you select it a default Microsoft AVI file will appear in your preview window.

Need more? Let me know.

Plusone, according to EE rules, and to be fair to everyone....unless you are contributing to the author's question, you need to open a new thread for questions of your own. Thanks for your understanding.
