If you tire of Mona Lisa, you can use your own .jpg, .gif, or .bmp images instead. Just put the files into a folder on your hard drive and point the screen saver to it by going to Settings and clicking "Folder To Load Images From," then selecting the folder and clicking OK. The Settings menu also lets you display the image name, tweak the density of the images, and more.

The program is easy to install; just click the executable. Its author, Robert Bennett of Useless Creations, has designed a program to run all of his screen savers. Selecting UC3D Screen Saver System v1 in the Display Properties Screen Saver list gives you access to Da Vinci Encoded, plus any other Useless Creations screen savers you may have.

Da Vinci Encoded is free for 14 days. Paying the $5 registration fee removes the scrolling nag text and the Useless Creations logo that appears in the bottom right corner of the screen.
