Photo Screensaver Size Mode Not Working

Hi there,

Since a few versions (I cannot remember when it started) the "Size Mode" setting for the Photo Screensaver is not doing anything.

When setting it to "Fit width and maintain Aspect Ratio" the images will not fully fill the screen resulting to a photo with black edges left and right.

In fact non of the modes seem to work. Even setting it to "Stretch" or "Center" will not do anything.

I'm currently using DisplayFusion 9.6.2.b1 on Windows 10 18363

Is the "Scale smaller images to fit the screen" option enabled? If so, does disabling that make any difference?

Hi Keith,

thanks for your reply.

The setting of "Scale smaller images to fit the screen" does not change the behaviour in either way. It even seems it does not scale at all.

No matter which size mode I choose, images will never be scaled to fit the displays width nor height.

Hope this helps.

With regards

Could you send me one of the image files that doesn't scale, and also a screenshot of the current settings for the DisplayFusion Photos Screen Saver?

Thanks!

Hi Keith,

here are my settings and ascreenshot of the screensaver in action on my three screen setup.

As said before: no difference when setting "Scale smaller images to fit the screen". Nor does setting any size mode scale the images in width.

With regards,

Thanks! If you disable the "Show images in a random position" option, then set the size mode to either "Stretch" or one of the "Clip Edges" options, does that work?

Hi Keith,

that seems to fix the scaling issue!

I might have misinterpreted that option as "showing a random image".
Although I might have used that setting in older versions as well.
I'm not sure though.

But for now this fixes my issue. Thanks!

With regards,
