Ever Wanted a “Silckr” Screensaver? February 27, 2007

Posted by Brian L. Belen in Odds and Ends, Technology.

PC users, rejoice! Now there is a screensaver for you like a Mac’s, which can display your photos without making them look like a Powerpoint presentation.

Cellar Door Software’s Slickr is a PC screensaver that displays photos with the fading, zooming and panning effects that have made the Mac equivalent the envy of Windows-based users for years. As the name implies, the software probably works best with a Flickr account and an active internet connection, but it also displays photos stored locally on one’s hard drive in much the same fashion.

As a Mac user myself, I don’t know whether Windows Vista has this functionality already built-in, but it should be of interest to those of you who don’t plan to upgrade anytime soon. Best to download it now while it’s still free. Just remember: Macs had it first!
