Well, after installing you have to go hunting for this program, it doesn't leave you icons or jump up and holler at you, but after I tracked it down I discovered 8 free wallpapers of the earth as viewed from space. This company seems to specialize in wallpaper, screen savers, just about anything to do with graphics. On the info page, you are told that they break them up in groups of 10 by category such as space, people, art, and so on and they sell 100 wallpapers for $7. These pictures are .jpgs and you are told that if your operating system only recognizes .bmp wallpaper, there's no problem. Just run the convenient slide show, which will run the 8 pictures over and over, [you decide how many seconds] and when you find one you like, right click, hit 'save background as', and choose save as type as .bmp. There you go, then you can save the .bmp to windows and you got a new screen saver.
