I manage the web site for a small municipality. Normally I use photobucket.com to embed photo slideshows on our site but their rework has fubar'd me beyond description.
I've never worked with flash at all, period. This little utility makes creating a flash slideshow an absolute breeze! Figuring out how to make it work with my editor was much more difficult.....
This is after making only one slideshow with about 15 photos. I'll make a final decision after I make a few more, especially some larger ones. The final file size was 6 MB at 360x480. That could turn out to be a problem in the long run. It seems to load pretty quickly so we'll see.
As of this moment, though, I'm very pleased with this product and highly recommend it.
While nothing drastic, I would love to see this have a sizer for the image outputs. You can't enlarge the output which ok, you want this scaled for a lot of publishing purposes and such but the option to enlarge this would still be great.
Also, support for Firefox is minimal if at all at the time of use. Had to fire up IE and get flash installed in IE to use this.
Again, no big deal and the positives far outweigh any small issues here (rather, my opinions).
You get great effects for one. Two, the program is so easy to use, I can't see anyone having to look into it to use it at all. Just add photos to library, add effects, add music, generate as .exe, swf+html or screensaver. It tends to work flawlessly. You can even add text to images with many options involved there as well.
Again, I wish you could modify the size of the output but hey, it's free, works great, very nice for free.
This simple little program helped with adding hyperlinks and more. This program is very easy to use and many features for making your own slide shows. Can also take and make a screen saver as well as a swf file and exe publishing available as well. Had been looking for a simple and easy program like this to put a slide show with hyperlinks onto my web site. And you can not beat this one and the price is right as well, FREE thanks for the great simple program.
Very easy to install. Very clean looking. I really put the pedal to the metal in my first use attempt (5 min ago) and was really surprised. I loaded 170 images, my own mp3 of a little over 5 min). The music looped about 4 1/2 times for 170 images. WOW! About 24 images for other programs I have used. I think I could have loaded more images-will test this out later. The only problem, and really not a problem at all, is to show how long a production is. This ran a little over 20 min and it was the looping of the mp3 that helped me time it. I look forward to any updates. A great little program and it is one I will be keeping. Thanks to the programmers.
