    Enlarge Screensaver

    I have my slideshow screensaver set up fine. However, the photos are small and does not full up my 20inch screen. Is it possible to make the photos larger?

    You can take individual images and, using GIMP, Paint (resize), etc., increase each image size. If these are already low rez images, they will appear blurry.

    XP has a setting that allows you to 'stretch' your screensaver to fit the entire screen. I am very surprised to see that this option has apparently been eliminated in Vista, (although I can't image why). I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager which is a GREAT photo editor -- and I just 'resize' the photos to fit the screen. You can use one of their choices of screen size, or customize your own. Trial and error, pretty much, but it works.

    PS, lemur is right, if the photos are too small, it won't work well because they'll appear blurry.

    Thanks for the replies. Re: how to enlarge screensaver on vista. lemur is right if the pictures are small they will come out blurry. Vista should have a must easier system, my old XP was way easier
