S10 WebAlbum is a "jewel" plain and simple. The interface, versatility, feature set and support are first rate.
I've used many web album tools over the years both paid and free, and this one tops the list for me. There is an excellent range of "themes," colors, and fonts. There is a choice of two layouts and it's possible to do red-eye fix, adjust brightness, rotate images, adjust tilt and even link to one's favorite image processing software to make changes to your images if needed. There is an option of placing a "home" link so this product can be used as a "link" from your website and the "return" to the main page is as simple as clicking the "home" link. There is a built-in FTP feature to upload to your website and all changes you make are "immediately" reflected on your screen as you build your page. When the page is saved everything is already done so there is no "generate" time. What you see is what you get. Changing image size is as easy as clicking on little squares which are plainly marked. Users can run a slideshow complete with transitions (transitions for IE only, right now), press plainly marked forward, back, pause, etc. There is an "index view" of thumbnails which the user decides the size and placement of and also one has complete control over the relative and precise size of display images. The viewer can choose from the index view, slideshow or manual show.
Big thumbs up from me! Try this freeware and make a small donation if you like it and use it!!
I've never used this type of program before, so I can't honestly make any comparisons with any others, but I found it very intuitive in operation. The photo editing is limited, which should be expected, as this is not the purpose of this particular program. The added FTP interface is a plus, with three easy to follow steps for uploading, although I haven't used it yet. The options for many background textures, photo display transitions and display settings are good. An excellent program, well thought out with numerous perks. I'm not sure what more a person would want in this type of program. I'll be putting this to good use.
