The Nostalgic Screensaver


I recently made a screensaver for Windows which I call the Nostalgic Screenaver.

Basically it takes folder of images and displays them slowly zooming in, zooming out and panning over each image while crossfading between them. This gives the effect you often see in documentaries and biography programs where they show lots of still pictures from the past.

Check it out!

I find it very mesmerizing. I have slideshow programs including my javascript/html based program Thumbs but for some reason that zooming/panning action really makes it seem like I'm looking at something more interesting than when I just look at them sitting still.

Note: It requires Direct X 8.0 which you can download from the Windows update site and it also requires the Windows Installer which is built into most new versions of Windows but might be missing on your particular machine.
