When I first installed Album Art For The Rest Of Us I loved it. However it has changed (possibly after OS upgrade). Originally album covers from My iTunes library displayed at a uniform size and at regular intervals one would flip over and change to a new image.
Now they display at various sizes and overlap. They are also semi transparent so some of the underlying image/s show through. They keep on building up until it is all a sloppy looking mish mash. I preferred the old display and wish there was a way to revert to that.
I am using an Intel Power Mac with OS 10.5.8.

Loading iTunes will keep me from using this. Nothing against iTunes but it just shouldn't be necessary and to have it open is very klunky.

Wow, I wish I had found this before 'upgrading' to Tiger!
It is actually different from the Tiger version:
This one is a nice randomized collage of translucent album covers. No options (yet).
Mac OS 10.4's saver loads a bunch of art first, then tiles them all onscreen and flips them one at a time, each flip changes that tile to a new cover art. You get to pick how many rows there are, and a delay.

I like that this one works in Tiger as well, and loads faster! Plus, you get some wierd effects when an artist shows up on/through a different album cover...

However, I expected more from all album art savers, something in 3D (openGL?) with cubes or towers or flying art... but that is something to wish for in the future. So far, so good.
