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.

The next set of pictures shows how to select one or all screens and change the clock settings.

You can change the clock settings for all screens simultaneously. You select all monitors by pressing the 0 (zero).
