If you're looking for a program to create your own personal screensavers from photos and to add wallpaper to your desktop, with no muss, no fuss, and no knowledge of anything at all required, look into the Personal Edition of this program.

If you'd like a program to create screensavers for free distribution for your business, and know nothing at all about graphics, coordinates, animation, etc., then you MIGHT look into the Basic Edition.

If, however, you're looking for a program to create professional, animated screensavers for distribution, this is NOT the one you want. The program allows no animation, no coordinate or time-line settings -- it's a basic photo viewing program with the photos feeding in through a few special effects. You can determine the photos to be shown, add music, and create an executable file, using your own company information in the "about" screens. That's it, unfortunately -- and for the price of the Professional Edition, that's not enough. AND...the prices quoted above are good only for their "January special".

Save your money and have a look at PY Software's Animated Screensaver program - costs less, does more, more filling.
