It's been a while since I've run dual monitors, but you should be able to do this from within your video card settings (set it to have both monitors appear as a single desktop, or something to that effect).

I'm at work right now, so I'm limited in the sites I can check into, but I did find this site HERE that says it supports dual monitors for the screen saver that you'll download. If it doesnt' do what you want, just uninstall it and delete the file.

If you want to use your current screen saver, then you just might have to set up like I had first mentioned. Perhaps someone else can chime in that knows about a program that will do this for you!

Soooo......I'm a bit confused here....you don't want one picture spread across two screens, you want each image to show up on each screen.....? Have you tried downloading webshots? Read the tutorials/faq's on how to add your own photos to it to allow you to view your images. I *think* this has dual monitor support (check all the options and whatnot). Also, check the options in your graphic card settings, as there might be a setting in it for dual monitors and how it's displayed. I know that when I had dual monitors, I had to stretch the desktop across both monitors to get it to work....but that was a few years ago with a different system/gfx card.

Let me know if this helps. If not, then I'll get another monitor and attach it to my comp and see what I can figure out! :thumbsup:
