    I'm looking for a screensaver that I can give a keyword and then it will displays photos from that keyword randomly. Anyone know of something like this?

    Picasa will do it, kind of

    I can see how it could show a randomized playlist with a set interval between each image in full screen, but how would you type in a keyword and match images to that keyword? I don't know how any program would do that unless the image format you saved allowed metadata to be saved with it, to specify keyword matches.

    you can search for parts of the filename, or if the images have tags/metadata on them, you could search for the tags, and in about 3 seconds add all of those pictures to the screensaver album

    then in the settings, set it to display the screensaver album only

    not ideal.. but if the images DON'T have tags.. you can manually select in picasa easier than anything else, and it's not bad for free
