This screen saver is chuck full of sunrises, sunsets, stormy clouds, rainbows, reflections on the water-in other words all kinds of things to do with skies! The pictures are fantastic, and it comes with 37 gorgeous images. It would have been great if there was sound to it, but I have no idea what kind of sounds would go with it, which is probably why there was no sound!. 

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, 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, randomly 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 in 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!
