Calif Beach Girls 4 [52 images]-Oh God, not another collection of them women that all women would like to be and all men would like to be on top of...never mind.The first 3 collections must have been a hit to bring out another sequel. [gee this is starting to remind me of Friday the 13th movies-one more time!] .The settings have all the usual settings possible, including time of image shown, transition effects, using current image as wallpaper, and much more. Something that is different is a browse image set option, [either theirís or your own] and each image is number and shown in a thumbnail. With the caption option turned on, you will find out who these pictures are. There is also a small clock, that you can either turn on or off, sitting quietly in the corner, giving you the time without getting in the way of the picture.

The image, which is a still, shows first; then graphic effect take over on top of the picture. These might be a couple of bouncing spheres, which are covered with the parts of the picture in the background, or rotating geometric shapes, or more.

The full version has 52 images, this shareware version has 10 images. All are included in the download, you just need to register to unlock the other pictures. With the browse feature, the other images are blocked out, but not so blocked out that you canít get the gist of what you will be getting.

All of the screen savers from the Image Factory come with a free bonus, itís called Screen Manager, you have the option of whether you want to load it or not, and it is a neat little program. It allows you to run, configure, or switch screen savers, you can switch wallpaper, change display settings or appearance, or access windows utilities, or desktop shortcuts right from an icon in your system tray. It can also take you directly to the Image Factory website.
