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
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.
