    Does this involve iPhoto in some way?

    So it's a screensaver question?

    Can you access this library from other Applications? iMovie? Pages? If so, then it's a screensaver issue rather than an iPhoto/Aperture one and I'd ask that on the Using Mac OS X forum for your version of the OS then. It's likely a bunged up cache file and someone over there should be able to point you in the direction of fixing that.

     

    If you can't, then it's an issue within this library. Post back and let us know.

    This has been daed for some time...

     

    I just upgraded to Mountain Lion, and the slide show screen saver that I created under Lion - well - they don't work any more. I used the Beach photos slidesaver that was built in as my template, and just replaced the photos in the package. This worked fine  - until I upgraded. Is there a way to get the old slide screen savers to work under Mountain Lion? I was really proud of these. It looks like they messed a bit with the screen savers! Lots of the ones I had don't work any more!

     

    Thanks!

    What slideshow theme are you trying to use.  Where is your iPhoto Library located?

    Old T - I was not trying to use a theme from the default ML new shows. Some time ago - long time - I found out that the old slide screen savers built into OSX, Beach, Cosmos, Nature, etc., had their photos stored in the package contents Resources folder. It was then easy to create my own cusom show, y simple replacing the jpegs, and a little editing on the plist. Those gave you a little more options as well in the setup.

     

    ML did away with all that, and you get Apple's choices and that's all. I did find out where the default "collections" are kept, and it appears that until someone gets a better hack, that I simply did the same thing here.... I replaced the jpegs in the National Geographic Collection with the slides from my old custom collection - actually I added - any Natl Geo shot is a good one!

     

    So while we cannot control the action any more, I still have what I want. Sort of. I suppose I could have just pointed the Ken Burns Effect to the Custom Slides folder I have and accomplished the same thing. I guess I editted the default collection on principle!

     

    Did they reallly need to mess with the Screen savers!!
