    In the Screen Saver Preference, when I select an iPhoto album to be the screen saver (not the desktop picture), Sreensaver does not display the correct album/pictures.

    Some thing is corrupted here. I tried trashing some preferences (.plist) put it did not help.

    I still have iPhoto 2.0

    On OS 10.4.8

    Thanks for any help.

    The fact you're using a much older version of iPhoto might be the problem.

    As a possible workaround, if you can find the appropriate iPhoto folder within your Pictures folder (where that roll is stored), you can use the "Pictures Folder" screen saver and point it there, bypassing the iPhoto screen saver.

    Likewise, you could copy (from iPhoto) the pictures you care about into a separate folder, then point the "Pictures Folder" saver to that.

    There might be a way to get things to work otherwise, but I suspect that iPhoto 2.0 is the problem.
