iScreensaver
iScreensaver has been updated to version 6.8.3.1351




iScreensaver version 6.8.3 fixes an issue that could cause screensaver installers to crash silently on macOS non-English language systems (such as Korean). It also has improved error reporting, and has been tested with the latest versions of Windows 11 and macOS 12.1 Monterey. Any authors distributing screensavers to non-English macOS users should update and rebuild as soon as possible, and other authors are encouraged to update and rebuild when convenient.



Release Notes
We are pleased to announce the release of iScreensaver version 6 which supports macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) through 11 (Big Sur) and Windows 7 through 10. Read about Version 6

How to load/use Meta data from Photos after exporting image.

Hopefully I'm just missing something as I'm still playing/learning.

The reason I'm doing the export is to get the image displayed full screen instead of letterbox.

My images are 4032x3024, type heic. That size doesn't letterbox nicely for me so by cropping to 16x9 format, 4032x2268, I get full screen on my iMac Pro and LG 5k.

I crop the image in Photos to 16x9 as it gives me some control of the resulting image.

I then export the image since taking it direct from Photos only gives the un-cropped original.

I assume since file types no longer match (heic->jpeg), metadata load like location, etc. is lost?

I'm guessing a resize app that would maintain heic type/extension would possibly work for me but I haven't found one yet.

Too bad I can't use the edited version from Photos.app. Maybe some day?

    Oh, no need to do any of those extra steps. Just use the full images as before by dragging and dropping (or copy/paste) from Photos.app into iScreensaver.

    Then, iInside iScreensaver, you can change the Media Stretch and Effect settings to whatever you want (Crop, Letterbox, random motion on or off, as well as other presets and custom effects).

    Thank you. I'll have another go at that.

    Edit: Thanks again for the extra shove to try again inside iscreensaver. Think I found the right spot(s) this time :)
