By Barbara Obermeier, Ted Padova

If you have two or more photos you want to use, you can use Elements 15 to create a screen saver in Windows or OS X. Follow these steps in Windows 10:

  1. Copy the photos you want to see in your screen saver to a new folder.
  2. Right-click anywhere on the desktop and select Personalize.
  3. Click Screen Saver Settings in the bottom right of the Personalization window.
  4. In the Screen Saver Settings window, select Photos in the drop-down menu.
  5. Click Settings.
  6. Click Browse and navigate to the folder you created in Step 1 and select the photo.
  7. Select a slide show speed from the drop-down menu.

    Optionally, check Shuffle to randomize the photo order.

  8. Click Save.
  9. Click the Preview button to test your screen saver.
  10. Click the arrows to specify the amount of time before your screen saver displays.
  11. Click OK.

Mac users can create custom screen savers even more easily:

  1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu.
  2. Click Desktop & Screen Saver and then click the Screen Saver tab.
  3. To choose one of your photos, click the plus sign, and navigate to and select your folder. Click Choose and click the photo you want.
  4. Specify the options for your screen saver.

    For example, have it display after a selected amount of time.

  5. Click the Close button in the top-left corner.
