Re: How do I create a screen saver using my digital photos?
Since everyone so far has explained how to do this in OS X, I thought I'd add a description for OS 8.6 ... and probably 9.1 (hey, some of us can't afford to upgrade... or just like Classic Mac OS!)
Open the Apple Menu and select "Control Panels." From here, select "Appearance." From here you have a variety of ways to customize how your Mac looks, but for this task you want to click on the tab labled "Desktop."
Now there is a window with desktop preview window and a list of pre-existing patterns that can fill the desktop. Beneath this list is a button labeled "Place Picture." Click on it and select the picture you want from the pop-up menu (your digital pictures have to already be on your hard drive, of course.)
Now you can see a preview of what your picture will look like on your desktop.
Sometimes your picture isn't exactly the same size as your desktop. Below the "Place Picture" button (which will now read "Remove Picture"), there is another button. It probably reads "Position Automatically." You can leave this alone or you can click it and have your picture (a) placed in the center of the screen, (b) scaled to fit the size of your screen, (c) tiled on your screen, or (d) stretched to completely fill the screen.
Finally, click "Set Desktop" and your picture is now on your desktop. If you like the way it looks, just close the "Apperance" Control Panel window. If not, click "Remove Picture" and repeat the process with another picture.
The description may seem a bit long, but it's really quite simple and intuitive.
