    I just installed the latest OS Update for my iMac, and now my screen saver has vanished.
    I have over 300 photos from my last vacation, they're still on my computer, and easily accessed in iPhoto, and I created a new folder for them. But in the screen saver options, that photos folder isn't available.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    :(

    The option of using iPhoto as a source for the Screensaver disappeared in 10.9 I believe. Try dragging those photos to a folder in Finder and see if you can use them then.

    It works fine for me on 10.10.3. I went into System Preferences->Desktop&Screen Saver, selected screen saver then changed the Source pull down to Photo Library and it lets me selects any of my Aperture (and iPhoto) libraries. You can also select a folder there. For iPhoto it lets you select both Albums and Events.

    Not for me. iPhoto doesn't appear in the Source option and if I navigate to my Pictures Folder, the iPhoto Library is greyed out.
