Out of mild curiosity, can the standard screensaver images be combined into one screensaver? There are 3 or 4 different choices - Nat. Geo, Aerial, Cosmos, etc. - but there are only perhaps 10 images for each. All the images are nice and I'd rather have them combined into one but can't see a way to do so. Is there? Thanks.

Take the photos (I don't know their location; somebody should be able to chime in), put them all in a folder or iPhoto, and point the screensaver to that location.

If it's like previous versions of OS X, the images are stored in .SlideSaver files in /System/Library/Screen Savers. Open that directory, right-click on any of the SlideSaver files, and select "show package contents". You can then copy the images out of the screensavers to your chosen location.
