Exporing Photos from Photos.app or other applications

Photos Export

In more recent version of OS X, the Photos.app application will allow you to drag & drop directly one or more images or movies directly into the iScreensaver Designer window. However, when doing this you end up with low-quality pictures that have been re-encoded.

Fortunately, there is an easy method - any video files that you plan to use should be re-encoded using a high-quality standards-compliant video encoder.

How to solve the problem? Just export before importing. file...

To use, simply follow these steps:

  • Open the Photos.app
  • Select one or more images or movies.
  • From the File menu, choose Export.... You will have a choice of Export Unmodified Original as well as Export.
  • If you choose Export you will have a choice of resolutions.
  • Photos:
    • Photo Kind: JPEG
    • JPEG Quality: High
    • Size: Custom, Max Width of 4096.

    • Quality: 1080p
