PicSaver is a photon application that will display random picture from a specified directory. To configure the application run PicSaver -cc. You can also manually set the directory and delay with the -d and -t options. PicSaver -d /pics -t 5000
You can Also use infinity's method of random screensaver with PicSaver.

The only diference is you script only needs the following two lines.</FONT></P>

On a related note, maybe some of you photon programmers can help me out. Whenever saver spawns this app, it spawns it in the background. That's why you have to have the firkey command in the script. I've tried everything I can think of to get the app to launch in from of everything. I have the focus arg set and every time an image is loaded a window tofront command is issued. I even put code in the app to emit a key stroke, but nothing short of the fireKey lines seems to bring it to front. Any ideas?
