iPhoto gridSaver takes the concept of the iTunes Artwork screensaver, applies it to iPhoto. Yep, that's right - there was no equivalent screensaver for iPhoto...until now!

Crashed as soon as I tried to use it. 10.6.2

I'm sorry that happened. This usually occurs because your iPhoto library is not located in the default location (~/Pictures)...

The code I use to browse iPhotos comes almost entirely from Apple. I'm a hobbyist developer so it will be a little bit before I can solve this one. If you use the default iPhoto location though, it should work.

If you are using the default iPhoto location, please email me some details about your crash.

Works really nicely on my MacBook pro core 2 duo w/Leopard 10.5.7, although it does cause System Preferences to crash once in a while, even though a copy of iPhoto library is in my ~/Pictures folder.
I've got many hundreds of incredible Sound Spectrum "G-Force" screenshots that I've saved and iPhotogridsaver presents them really effectively.
The images in the grid can be set to change at intervals of 1-5 seconds and the number of
rows of images set from 2-8.
Makes for some very satisfying eye candy.

Well, the crashes are occurring regularly now, usually within a minute after actuating gridSaver, every time.
Maybe I oughta deduct one of my stars....I was bit too generous. So it's four stars after all;
the full five stars comes after the crashing issue is resolved.
Too bad, 'cause gridSaver is really a sweet little confection otherwise.

Your iPhoto Library must be in ~/Pictures

In the future this will likely be rectified. Also you must be on OS 10.5 and on an Intel mac.

Activating the screensaver causes my System Preferences to crash. I'd send my iPhoto gridSaver crash log to the developer, but there's no contact info on his website.

It's my System Preferences crash log that I'd send over to him. When it crashed, I got a message on my screen stating that iPhotp gridSaver was the culprit.

First, thank you for downloading this and giving it a shot.

I am a hobbyist developer so I may not actually be able to help you, but I will try.

I don't list my email address on the site, but it can be found in the Read Me file. If you send me your crash log info I'll be happy to take a look.

Just an FYI to anyone who downloads this and has trouble--this software assumes that the location of your iPhoto library is in iPhoto's standard place... ~/Pictures/

The people who have had problems with this application are those that have moved their iPhoto Libraries elsewhere.
