"This is just what I was looking for in a screensaver!"

March 15, 2011  |  By Annie10M

 |  Version: ArtSaver 2.1

Pros

I don't need to import photos into iPhoto.

Cons

None found yet.

Summary

I was hoping for a screensaver that would just show photos from my computer, like in Windows. And I didn't want to have to import all my photos into iPhoto. After much searching, I found this one. It's great. It shows the name of the photo, and you can "interrupt" the screensaver and go back to the previous picture, or pause on the current one, or even go to the photo in Finder. It's even better than what I was looking for!

"Just what I was looking for in a slideshow screensaver"

January 27, 2011  |  By Vorocity

 |  Version: ArtSaver 2.1

Pros

Two key features for me:
1) it shows the file path, so you can see the date, etc
2) if a picture of interest comes up, you can use the arrow keys to move forward or backwards (fantastic!)

Cons

Can't seem to set it so you avoid black borders entirely, which would be my preference.

Summary

I was looking for this feature set for awhile. It's the best way to take good use of my growing photo collection by having it on display. (looks great on the new mac screens. It has the key features I needed, as well as the Ken Burns effect. It should be the default one that ships with Mac.

It works fine my Mac Pro running 10.6.6, and I write this on January 27, so maybe "Understarsidream" has a different issue? Or maybe the author fixed a bug in the last 25 days.

Bottom line, I'd definitely drop a few bucks for it on the App Store, but free is good too.

"Does not work with 10.6"

January 02, 2011  |  By Understarsidream

 |  Version: ArtSaver 2.1

Pros

There aren't any since it does not work.

Cons

Does not work with 10.6 at all

Summary

I loved this screensaver but sadly it doesn't work anymore. Hopefully, it will make a comeback via the upcoming app store - I'd be more than happy to purchase a working version.

"I Like This a Lot"

November 16, 2009  |  By yeidel

 |  Version: ArtSaver 2.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
It does all the things I want that the built-in saver doesn't. This version works fine on Snow Leopard (though it's not listed on the VT page). Support the author.

What's new in version 2.1
  • path names with '/' were not handled correctly
  • maybe, version 2.0 contained a bug when searching was done by hand ("Use Spotlight" box is off); this should be fixed
  • the usual installation via double-click should work now
