Does it have a screen saver yet?

I have an awesome collection of photos in my Pictures folder that I haven't seen for a year or more :-(

+1 Agreed. I'd love it if I had a lock screen that showed my photos, and was easily configurable as, dare I say, the Windows 7 photos screensaver (easily specify the location of the photos).

Just checked the 3.6 Live CD - there doesn't appear to be an option for a screensaver... I would say 'yet' but I suspect that it has been decided that I don't want one and if I say I do then I should be re-educated.

Why not simply disable the GNOME screen saver and use one of the currently available alternatives to display your pictures? It should be quite simple.

A screen saver in this modern day of age is something that actually saves your screen (ie turn it off). It seems that you want something like a "Photo frame" app.
