Editors' reviewThis pleasant program lets you visit the crown jewels of America's national parks without ever leaving your desk. National Parks Screensaver boasts a variety of images shot in scenic locations around the country, from the Grand Canyon at dusk to the bizarre rock formations of Arches National Park in winter. While image quality was mostly good, we did notice a few artifacts in certain images. The calming, acoustic guitar-based soundtrack adds a nice ambience, but you can always disable it if you feel otherwise. The application also lets you determine the location and appearance of its helpful captions, choose from a number of transition effects, and set the interval between images. Considering all those pluses and the fact that it's adware free, we can recommend this screensaver to all nature lovers.
National Park Screen Saver features higher-resolution photographs of spectacular National Park landscapes. Fifteen wonderful pictures are accompanied by an acoustically based digital soundtrack, and all images are captioned with user-controlled placement and type size. The excellent screensaver engine provides options for adjusting the delay between picture changes, showing pictures full-screen or at original size, muting the audio, using up to 23 transition effects, and also takes advantage of Microsoft Plus support. Tray- and desktop-based screensaver controls (which work with any Windows screensaver) are bundled as a bonus.
