    Help please folks,

    My iPhotos library is not available in the options list for picture screensavers.

    I have 'choose folder...' but the iPhotos library is greyed out. The only folder clickable is 'MacOS 10.15 pre-upgrade Backup'.

    I've checked in iPhotos and my photos library is the system photo library and shows up in Finder as normal.

    Why is the screensaver app not seeing it?

    I much prefer to see my own photos rather than the default libraries.
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Steve

    Had this issue in Beta 1. I think there is a permission setting you have to allow for access to wherever the pictures are saved.

    You might try this open your pictures folder then right click on Photos Library -Show Package Content and the folder that has all your photo's in in the original folder maybe compress the Photos Library unzip it I think the zip file will appear on your desktop and put that in your pictures library and see if the screensaver links to that one just an idea until someone has a better solution or fix

    Appreciate the replies guys, thanks. Sadly neither solution works. My library is greyed out in the screensaver app but appears normally via Finder. Baffled.

    maybe it could be the syncing with iCloud and the photo's app
