Zebras! (the screen saver)

(Eventually) a screen saver that obtains images from Flickr.

(Right now) a screen saver that shows a single image downloaded from the internet.

This is a work in progress.

Basic Feature Ideas

  • Display images from Flickr

    • that match a tag or tags
    • that are found in a search
    • that are owned by a user
    • combinations (at least user + tag(s))
  • Configurable image switch time

  • Control speed

  • Cross fade one to the next

  • Gracefully handle lack of internet connection (stick on current image if we have one; built-in no internet image otherwise)

Other Feature Ideas

  • Optional border around images (a la instagram)

  • Ken Burns effect

  • Images don't move in a straight line

  • Image size control

  • Cache images to handle absence of internet connection

What's With The Name?

My daughter likes Zebras. She thinks my computer's primary purpose is to show her pictures of Zebras on Flickr. I wanted a screen saver that would show pictures from Flickr.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
