Question on WinXP My Picture Slideshow Screen Saver
Hello Follow Posters!
I have a problem with my photos getting cropped off in WinXP's "My Picture Slideshow" screen saver mode. I noticed that all my images when set to the "background/wallpaper" mode on my desktop fits well even when I center or stretch the images. I made sure that all my images are at least 1200x800 in size to accomodate my 1024x768 desktop screen size.
I notice however that all my images are cropped (even if I have very large images) during the "My Picture Slideshow" screen saver mode, and have large blank spaces in the screen saver mode. The other wallpaper photos which I downloaded over the net even in 800x600 screen solution fix smugly during this screen saver mode. Please note I have already set the setting in the screen saver to "stretch all images to fit".
I believe this problem could be due on how I resize my image in photoshop. Can anybody please shed some light into this issue? I have tried increasing the size of my images, decreasing my image resolution, increasing the canvas size but so far all my efforts are in vain.
Thanks in advance.

Hi, I tried cropping but that does not work as well. Can you please give me some instructions how to change the aspect ratio?
