Feature request-add Smart Crop to background image

Post by explor202 » 14 Oct 2022, 17:16

I really like this screensaver, especially how it can use the displayed image as a background too. However I find it stretches and distorts many of the images too much, which to me is very distracting. I would love to see an option added to specify which image to apply Smart Crop to so it would eliminate the background image distortion.

This one looks pretty easy to implement. Adding it to the to-do list. Thank you for the suggestion!

OK, it is done in the new release, which is already available for download:

And I must admit, the "smart-cropped" background looks way better, than stretched. Thank you for pointing it out.

Another huge feature in this release - the ability to configure and run custom command lines with currently shown picture(s):
