Windows 7: Live Photo Gallery Screensaver. Quality bad!

Live Photo Gallery Screensaver. Quality bad!

Some of my photos are displayed in a sort of low resolution!

I have downloaded and installed Windows Live Photo Gallery and use its screen-saver in Pan and zoom with medium speed. Many photos are excellently displayed but some are displayed in a very coarse resolution. These photos are displayed normally in other applications.

One for example is 4,15 MB width 10066 pixs and height 2619 pixs ( a panorama). I have tried to re-sample to a smaler size but the problem remains.

Using the Google screensaver they display normally, but I like the pan effect in Live Photo Gallery better.

Any ideas?

It's possibly caused by the pictures being of different sizes and some of them are being stretched to fit your screen more than others. The more the images have to be stretched to fit, the more distortion there will be.

I have also found the Live photo gallery screen saver never lets the display turn off on a new build I did for a family member. As soon as I switched screen savers, it worked fine. Looks like there are some bugs with it.
