Description

Loads several random images, and displays them as if lying in a random pile. The pile is periodically reshuffled, with new images coming in and old ones being thrown out.

This program requires a good video card capable of supporting large textures.

To specify the directory that images are loaded from, run xscreensaver-settings(1) and click on the "Advanced" tab.
