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.

    "Very poor support for pro registered users"

    July 24, 2012   |   By Huffnpuf

    Version: Endless Slideshow Screensaver 1.5.1.1

    Pros

    The program works fine for jpg files only.

    Cons

    The program does not read raw files. The developer has been promising to fix this issue for almost a year and still no fix. The lack of updates and support makes me feel like I wasted my money upgrading to the pro version.

    "Developed a Glitch!"

    July 03, 2012   |   By JPittam

    Version: Endless Slideshow Screensaver 1.5.1.1

    Pros

    Worked wonderfully for months.

    Cons

    Stopped performing flawlessly (had to rig the settings by eliminating the stop on mouse move). Wrote email to ask for help. Days later, still no response. I know it is free, but if they give an email address for help, you'd expect them to answer. Certainly won't be upgrading to the Pro version!

    Summary

    Could be a fluke with me, but it has become unreliable. Will be looking for a replacement.

    "Uninstaller contains malware, 4 STAR Alert"

    April 24, 2011   |   By mitchiner

    Version: Endless Slideshow Screensaver 1.5.1.1

    Pros

    There are no pros!

    Cons

    1.Incompatibility with multiple monitors installations; 2.Unable to successfully and completely uninstall this software. It still reappears in drop down listing of screensavers; 3.Built-In uninstaller contains a 4-STAR malware.

    Summary

    User BEWARE! If it doesn't work in your installation, the vendor has made it nearly impossible to remove from the system. It is embedded in over 100 locations throughout the operating system, including the registry!

    "Exactly what I was searching for..."

    February 08, 2009   |   By SalviaWillow

    Version: Endless Slideshow Screensaver 1.1.1.0

    Pros

    -just add the root folder and that's it, every folder under the root folder is scanned too
    - cool slideshow effects
    -works as Screensaver AND Slideshow
    -every picture can be used for Desktop Wallpaper

    Cons

    maybe for some of you:
    -you can choose just one chategory for downloading new pictures...otherwise you have to chose "all categories"

    Summary

    It was a screensaver & slideshow exactly like I was searching for. It's FREE. Pictures fitting perfectly to full screen. 5 stars!
