Add images to an existing system screen saver
Authored by: cra on May 27, '12 01:10:17PM

Would it somehow be possible to "add" an entire folder, preferably on my NAS? I would love to be able to have the system screensaver flipping through all our family photos. That way they would be seen a lot more. I had a similar setup on our (dare I say it) Windows machine a few years back, and we all really enjoyed the randomness of thousand of photos dating hours or years back in time.

Any way to achieve this on the Mac?

In System Preferences/Desktop & Screen Saver, when you're selecting your screen saver, click on the small + sign underneath the list of available Screen Savers, and one of the options is "Add Folder of Pictures". Easy as that. :-)
Enjoy your family pics while your Mac is idle!

PS: This is under 10.7. In 10.5 you have the option to "Choose Folder" directly in the list of available Screen Savers. I don't have access to a 10.6 machine right now, but I fugure it will be similar to either one.
