Dual screen previews

The next picture shows an animated screen transition, multi monitor animated transitions will be in the same style for all monitors.
The Random Photo Screensaver automatically detects panorama photos. If a panorama photo is detected to be displayed on monitor 1, it is automatically stretched over all available monitors. This works for dual/triple screen and larger configurations. Of course the configuration screen allows you to disable this feature if you prefer.
