    Well, I have quite some gif files around that I extracted from a video (600 frames).

    I'd like to turn those into a windows screensaver (.scr ?).

    Is there any way to do this without that bloatware programs that float around ?


    + is there a file size limit to screensavers ?

    Isn't there a slideshow screensaver? I'm pretty sure you can choose what pics to add to it, order of showing and how long a pic will be there until a new one appears.

    I could have sworn Windows lets you use a picture folder as a slideshow screensaver... any reason you NEED it as a .scr file other than portability..?

    yes, you are right, however the screensaver windows has build in changes the slides too slow...

    I don't need it in scr period. It is fine anyway as long as the slides change quick enough.
