For quickly creating your own screensavers from photos and music, Ace ScreenSaver is a decent bet. Its no-nonsense interface is a snap to use. First, you select individual images (or whole image folders) and audio tracks in MP3 format. Next, you set the order for the images and the soundtracks. Ace ScreenSaver offers a good selection of transition effects you can preview in real time. You can save your finished screensaver in the program's internal format or as a self-installing executable. However, if you plan on selling your screensaver, note you can't add any shareware restrictions. Ace ScreenSaver is best suited to home users who want to turn their favorite snapshots into a Desktop memento.
