Editors' Review


Endless Slideshow Screensaver from Extreme Internet Software is a free slideshow screensaver that automatically searches for new desktop wallpaper online, downloads it, and displays it in your slideshow queue, so you always have new pictures to see. You can select categories for the program to search for, such as Nature, Animals, Cars, Girls, Men, or Cartoons. While the concept is interesting, we're not sure about the execution.

We installed Endless Slideshow Screensaver, opened its Settings dialog, and deselected all of the categories except one, Space. We clicked Preview, and the program opened and started downloading images, which it displayed shortly after the downloading began. The pictures were all high-quality astronomical images, many from NASA, and the slideshow employed a variety of different transitions and wipes to keep things interesting, though of course you can configure transition style, timing, and so on. When the downloading ceased, the screen preview ended. We set our screensaver timer for 1 minute, and, right on cue, Endless Slideshow Screensaver began its presentation. Next we clicked the program's desktop icon and reopened the Settings. We selected the Local pictures tab, which automatically indexed our picture library, though it's simple to add and remove specific folders. We clicked Preview, and the slideshow began displaying familiar images from our snapshot library. The Viewer and Slideshow tabs host familiar controls for changing how the slideshow looks and acts, while the Internet tab allows you to configure a proxy server. Online image search and retrieval are accomplished by something called Extreme Picture Finder, which seems to be a downgraded version of an image search and download tool from the same publisher.

Endless Slideshow Screensaver performs well and is based on an interesting concept, yet that concept is slightly troubling to us. In a nutshell, you can't control or even tell where the pictures are coming from, and there seem to be no filters or security options. We recommend it with reservations; those concerned about security will still find the local option to be a nice slideshow screensaver.

"Worked well for 3 months then crashed"

 |  Version: Endless Slideshow Screensaver 1.8


Allows me to use my own high quality photos as screen savers. My screen saver can promote my own personal agenda when I'm away from my desk if anybody else sees it. It is easy to pick and choose what folders it uses pictures from. This program also downloads some photos from safe sites like NASA etc that can be used as screen savers. The pictures were top quality. There is absolutely no malware installed in this program. When it was working, I really liked it and I would use it again if I knew the bugs were fixed.


One day the program crashed and no changes had been made to the computer to cause a conflict. I removed and then re-installed the program but a week later it crashed again. I attempted to send the bug report to the maker but that also failed. After uninstalling it, the popup asked for feedback as to why I removed the program but the only thing mandatory on the page was my personal information.
After it downloads a few pictures from on line, it messages that you have to upgrade to the paid version to get more photo downloads. That is stupid when I can download the same pictures on my hard drive without using the program and then use them just like I do my own pictures.


There is always a cost to doing business and nothing works for free. Most applications can cover cost on the side with advertisements just like CNET does or they allow fake download banners on their site just like CNET does or they allow downloaded spyware with the application like so many other programs have done. With a few thousand downloads/users, money is probably in short supply and customer support is just not possible. I suppose the next step is to run advertisements in the middle of the screen saver photos, but that wouldn't work because the screen saver is only on because we got called away from our desk and nobody is watching. Unfortunately, I would never pay for something like this when the basic program doesn't work well for me and I don't have time to figure out what the bug in it is. I think that the idea of personal pictures on a screen saver is great and maybe the next step should be photo presentations to accompany my lectures and not just a screen saver that lacks a commercial value.
