Dual Monitor Screensaver issue

Simple. Download DisplayFusion Software from DisplayFusion: Multi-Monitor Taskbar, Multi-Monitor Screen Savers, HotKeys, Multi-Monitor Wallpaper, Windows Logon Changer and more... and good luck. This software helped me to configured two monitors sharing with only one screensaver or running different screensavers on each monitor. I hope this post will help a lot people.

I just downloaded "gPhotoshow" and it seems to work pretty well with Dual monitor screensavers on laptops.

When I used DisplayFusion, you can only set ONE monitor screensaver that ran with "photos" screensaver drop-down list. If you tried to set both monitors with "Photos", DisplayFusion will tell you it'll not function properly and only one screen would work when you actually try previewing it.

However, with DisplayFusion, you can set one monitor to "Photos" and then others to other screensavers (3D Text, Bubbles, Ribbons.etc) and that will work fine as well. Or, there's also an option to temporarily "shutdown" the monitor while the screensaver is on.

So, depending on what you need, there's something for everyone within these 2 programs.

Screensaver
Is there any website that you can download free screensavers from? I checked a few random sites from the Wallpaper sticky thread, but didn't see any? I don't really have anything in mind, just something that may catch my eye. Matt

Dual monitors and photo screensaver
I have a dual monitor setup. In XP the photo screensaver would display pictures on both monitors, alternating between them. On Win7, most of the image is on my left monitor (which is my secondary, extended display). Some of the image shows on the main (larger) monitor. I would like the images to...
