I think your photos would have to be in widescreen in the first place.

In XP, I use Google Photos Screensaver set to "collage" and it uses the whole screen. I haven't tried it in Win7 yet. Let me know if you try it.

Or, you could use DisplayFusion Version Comparison | Binary Fortress Software - even the free version supports Wallpaper rotation *and* it supports 5 sizing modes.

Have you tried Windows Live Photo? It comes with a built in photo screensaver thats much better than the built in one.

Just as an update: I installed Google Photo Screensaver today. Last week it wouldn't install because it didn't recognize Win7. This week they must have fixed it because it installed without a hitch.

Another tip is PhotoSlideShow (FlekDev PhotoSlideShow). I use it 24/7 with all my pictures. Great piece of SW!

I liked the default photo screensaver settings for XP better.
I'd really like to find some way to emulate the photo screen saver that I had on XP. The default one on windows 7 is a little embarrassing in it's simplicity. What can I do about it?

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...
