This 'bloated' program was made with Hollywood, and was designed to be a clone
of a screen blanker that is put out by Google.

What it does:

"Collage Blanker" uses the pictures that you have saved in the
"ScreenBlankerPictures" drawer (or another drawer of your choice) and displays
them randomly in a collage. Pictures that are masked with the pure blue color
can be displayed correctly if you simply add "mask" to the end of the file name
(just before the extension). Pictures that use alpha-channel blending can be
displayed correctly if you simply add "alpha" to the end of the file name (just
before the extension). Check the "ScreenBlankerPictures" directory for examples.

This program can be activated by double-clicking its icon, and it is terminated
by a mouse movement or a key press. Use the "CollageBlanker_FitScreen" only if
your screen resolution is not either 1280x1024 or 1024x768.

If you want to use "Collage Blanker" as an actual screen blanker, you need to
use it together with Alex Carmona's excellent "Commander" multi-purpose screen
blanker module (available on OS4 Depot).

Check out the "Preferences" file to set the various options.

*Version 1.7 (5/19/07):
Added a version that will fit itself to your current screen's resolution (this
will accommodate wide screens).

*Version 1.6 (3/30/07):
Added a filter so that non-picture files (such as icons) in the picture drawer
will not interfere with CollageBlanker
Added the option of recursive directory scanning, so that the pictures in
subdirectories can also be used by CollageBlanker

*Version 1.5 :
Added a couple more options in Preferences (including being able to choose to
use a different picture drawer, the ability to have shadows on or off, the
choice of a solid color or a pattern for the picture boarders)

*Version 1.1:
Fixed a problem with the 1024x768 version

*Version 1.0:
First attempt

*********** If you like this program and would like to drop me some e-mail or
PayPal encouragement (or if you have any suggestions to make this program
better) my e-mail address is: revbloedel()yahoo.com.***********
