Waterfalls, waterfalls, and more waterfalls.27 pictures of some of the prettiest waterfalls Iíve ever seen are in this screen saver, and the relaxing sounds of falling water accompany it. To hear the sounds, you need an MPG3 player. The settings menu gives you an address where you can download one if you donít have one on your computer all ready.

The pictures are fantastic. The sound is pretty good too, with just a couple of comments. It made me chuckle when I saw a couple of the pictures with the sound, cause they didnít match. Itís a shame we couldnít have had 2 falling water waves, one relaxing and one roaring, cause while Niagara is beautiful-relaxing it ainít! The only thing I didnít care for was the fact that the sound wav ended rather abruptly. Maybe in the next upgrade, they will have it either play continuously, or fade away instead of just stopping. [on the other hand if thatís my only complaint-that ainít bad, donít you think?]

You can size the pictures from ordinal size to fit the screen, decide the length of time it will be on, enable captions and decide where to put them. You can decide how long you want between sounds, and choose between many, none or all of the transition effects.

The screen saver comes with a nifty control that lives in your system tray and enables you to do all kinds of things. You can change the default screensaver, launch any screensaver on your system, r andomly launch a new screensaver when windows starts, and temporarily turn off your screen saver.

This screensaver, unlike some that make you guess what the other images are, shows all the images i n this evaluation copy, but it is only good for 7 days, after that...all gone! Registration will get you free upgrades, notice of such, and tech help.

I really liked this screen saver, but donít be surprised if you feel like you want a vacation after watching it!
