Get A Slickr Screensaver

We have all wished we could have been a part of the renaissance time period. You know the one, the cultural rebirth from the fourteenth through the middle of the seventeenth centuries. They were a time of scientific revolution and artistic transformation. Well, I can’t give you a time machine but I can show you a way to experience your own photography renaissance, from your personal computer, with Slickr.

What is Slickr? Well by now everybody has heard of Flickr. Just in case you haven’t, Flickr is a digital photo sharing Web site and Web services suite. Slickr takes those photos from Flickr and displays them as a screensaver for your computer.

From the options, you can set Slickr to show you photos from a specific user, a group, a local folder, or everyone. You can also put in a few tags to specify what type of photos you want to see. You can also set the photo size when the screensaver is enabled along with a few other tweaking features.

If you are a fan of Flickr or a photography lover, then this screensaver is a must have. With having a handful of tags and this screensaver installed, you are opening your eyes to an entire world of photography that you may or may not have experienced before. Think of it as a renaissance (minus all the old and smelly people) for your digital lifestyle.

  1. I REALLY like this software…

    However, I’m wondering if there’s any way to get it to display pictures from both a local folder, AND from online…

    I’m trying to build a photo frame, and want to be able to drop a memory stick in and have it use those photos, but also want it to be able to grab pictures from a flickr account (when there’s wireless available)…. I DON’T want to have to change any settings to have it get pictures from one place or another (because it’s going to be a frame, where people never have to touch the computer at all…)

    I’d like it to be displaying a mix of the pictures that are local, and the ones that are online… But if there’s no memory stick in, only the ones online… and if there’s no wireless, then only the ones on the memory stick…

    Any suggestions???

    I thought about using google’s photo screensaver, but it doesn’t work in windows 2000…. And Picasa displays an annoying google logo regularly…

  2. Funnily enough I wrote a blog post yesterday about how Lady Gaga’s strategy is the same as I coach on the Social Newtorking coaching Club – and what a great example she is to us all and to the youth of today.
