How to use a GIF as your screensaver
Default screensavers are notoriously boring, which is why I was dying to find a way to change that by creating my own custom gif and setting it as my screensaver! Here's what my screensaver is currently set to and here's how I did it:
- Unzip the file you've downloaded
- Double click the file named 'AnimatedGif.saver' and it should launch 'System Preferences' for you.
- Click on 'Screen Saver Options' to launch the options menu, then click on 'Select File or Directory' to open your gif. From that menu you can also customize how your want your gif to look.
And that's it! What a cool little plugin to help you customize your screensaver to any gif you love! I'm really enjoying the extra reminders every day to take the time to Breathe In ... Breathe Out!
