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
