Although not powerful enough for professional use, this free screensaver-creation tool makes a nice pick for most other folks. Picture and Sound Show's interface is accessible only via the screensaver panel in your PC's Display menu, which may confuse some users, but seems convenient enough to us. Clicking the Settings tab lets you choose your own photos and music files, set the image interval, determine the order of the slides, and apply a number of different transition effects. If you want to additionally customize your show, you can change the background color, reposition the images, and add captions. That's all fine and well if you're just making a screensaver for personal use, but you can't save your creations as SCR or EXE files for widespread distribution. Still, we recommend this application to home users looking for an easy and totally free way to dress up their desktop.

Developer's Description

The Picture and Sound Show is a 32-bit screensaver for Windows that enables you to create your own slide shows from pictures and sounds on your computer. Each slide show has many customization options that control picture and sound order, picture position, transition effects, picture captions, and background patterns. There is no limit to the number of different slide shows that can be created, and the screensaver can automatically switch between slide shows at fixed intervals, or when the screensaver has been run a certain number of times. The Picture and Sound Show also can create customized screensavers for you to either use on your computer or to send to family or friends. Version 3.1d includes unspecified updates.
