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,

Henk Mul

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,

Hey Keith!
I didn't know if you want me to create a new post about this. I am having the same issue.
I have it set as Fit Best and maintain Aspect Ratio (clip edges).
All the checkboxes disabled.
Some photos have black bars on the screensaver, but when using that same photo and same settings as a wallpaper it does not have blackbars.
Any suggestions?

Here is one of the other photos. This one is longer in width than some of the others, but it is doing the same thing.
Some of the other photos I have are highly NSFW

Hello,

Thanks for sending that over, it looks like it's working on my end. Could you send me over a debug log? Here are the steps:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Thanks!

Here is the Log File. I have also attached 2 images.
1 of the Screensaver in action. On the left you will see it have black borders.
1 of the Homescreen and the image is displayed correctly.
Some info about my screen. Resolution is 2560*1440.
Time should be around 8:13am CST

Hello,

Thanks for sending that over. Could you also send me over a backup of your settings? You can grab them in the DisplayFusion Settings > Options, using the "Export Settings" button.

Thanks!

Hello,

Thanks for sending that over. We we're able to reproduce the issue on our end, but enabling "Scale smaller images to fit the screen" seemed to fix it up. If you enable that setting, does the issue persist?

Thanks!

Yup that seemed to resolve the issue! Didn't even think to turn that on because I assumed it would work like the wallpaper settings to just stretch it and clip the edges given that's the name of the setting.
