    Question Mac screen saver changes back to default
    In the past 6 months each time I add photos to the library my screen saver changes from my photo library back to the default .
    How can I stop that happening?

    Is your photo library in the place it is supposed to be (Users/[youraccountname]/Pictures)?

    Hi chas, I click on 'Source' then 'Photo Library' then select a folder or 'Photos'.
    It then works fine until I next add more photos to the library or do edits.

    Have you run permissions on this drive lately? Using Disk Utility or OnyX?

    Yes Chas, I did it yesterday using Disk Utility, all seemed well, but no change.
    It is working fine atm, but as soon as I load more photos is will drop back to the National Geographic set of images
