    Is it possible to extract individual photos from a multi-photo screensaver?
    I'm running Windows95

    The short answer....a <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15> no. However, if you have a decent screen capture program, such as HyperSnap DX, you may be able to capture the individual images.

    What screen saver is it?

    Use the Print Screen key. This method has been considered a "down & dirty" way to get this job done, but it almost always works.
    When the picture or image you want in the screensaver comes on the screen, simply hit the Print Screen key (it's next to the F12 key) and the screen image will be copied to the clipboard. Then open your favorite program for editing pictures (I use PowerPoint for screen capture jobs. It seems to create a better quality image and the file size seems to be consistently smaller than if you let a photo editing program create a JPG for you.), and paste the image there and save in the format of your choice. The downside to this method is that each time you hit the Print Screen key it will shutdown the screensaver and this can become tedious if you want a lot of the pictures on a particular SS. Also, a few screensavers have copy protection schemes that can defeat this trick. But they are few and far between.
