Here's the situation: you have a bunch of photos you'd like to share with family and friends, but you don't want to send them as simple email attachments. You'd like to do something creative with them, as long as it doesn't require a Master of Arts. My advice? Use Sothink Photo Album Maker.
With Sothink Photo Album Maker you can create beautiful animated photo albums with special effects, transitions and a background soundtrack of your choice. Best of all, the program is dead easy to use and just requires a few minutes – and four simple steps – to get the job done.
The interface in Sothink Photo Album Maker is divided into four main sections, each one dedicated to a different step in the process of creating the album: selecting the images, editing them and applying transition effects, selecting the theme and music for the album and finally generating the album. You can choose between the Flash source files (SWF and HTML) and a handy EXE for the technically impaired.
Sothink Photo Album Maker includes basic photo editing tools (enough to adjust brightness and contrast, crop, rotate and fix red eyes, among other tasks), a dozen themes, support for MP3 and an amazing 120+ transition effects. The only thing that didn't work too well for us were photo annotations; they look blurry and are hard to read on the image.
Sothink Photo Album Maker is probably the easiest and fastest way to create eye-catching Flash photo albums in just a few minutes.
