Each image in this screensaver shows several shots of the particular president, with at least one of them being a miniature. It also shows a view of the coin, if that president made it onto a coin, and shows his signature. And it tells you what number president he was, what years he was in office, when and where he was born, and when and where he died.

I also noticed if there was something "odd" about his death it is also mentioned. For instance Zachary Taylor died eating cherries and milk at a July 4th celebration and was only the second president to die in office.

You can change the size of the image to fit the screen or leave it original size, set how long the image will be on the screen, enable caption, choose the location for the captions, and pick a font. You can also chose any, some or none of the 23 transitional effects, and you can enable the always dither to standard palette button. The demo version can be used for 7 days and has 10 images, registering the program gives you 32 more pictures.
