After what seems like an age I’ve finally ‘finished’ updating the Flickr Screensaver.
Update: Download latest version.
Most of the work is in the background – involving rewriting the Flickr.Net API library to incorporate caching. Improved error handling also means it is less prone to crash.
Some things I’ve done based on comments and feedback:
- Add ability to use a users favorites as the picture source.
- Randomly moved the Flickr logo around the screen to stop monitor burn
- Change the minimum time between image changes to 30 seconds
- Cacheing of picture data and api calls
I urge everyone to update!
(p.s. If anyone has multiple monitors and would like to help me get it working properly then let me know, as I don’t have two monitors to test on…)
I expect to add more ‘image manipulation’ options, such as resizing, tiling, random positioning, maybe even transitions in time for version 4.
Download latest version above.
As always, comments welcome.
Update: For those wondering who this Brian chap is – its randomseattle, except he’s changed his screenname!
