Editors' review

Flash slideshows are a fun way to present your photos to friends and family. As its name suggests, Photo Flash Maker Free offers to help you create your own Flash slideshows. This program's easy-to-use interface and fun themes will appeal to a variety of users.

The program opens with a helpful wizard that walks you through the process of adding photos, creating a theme, and publishing the slideshow. But the regular user interface is just as easy to figure out. Tabs divide the interface into three areas: Photo, Theme, and Publish. Under the Photo tab, we browsed for our photos using the tree menu. Our selected photos appeared in the bottom of the window, where we were able to move them around to the order we wanted, as well as flip, rotate, and add text to the individual images. The Theme tab let us select a theme from a fairly large variety of fun, colorful themes. Unfortunately, you have to upgrade to the professional version to access the Professional, 3D, and Web Album themes, but there's plenty to choose from in the free version. Once our theme was selected, we were then able to browse for and add music to our slideshow. Finally, the Publish tab let us choose our output option--Create Flash File Only, Create Gift/Presentation CD/DVD, and Create Flash Files and Upload to Go2Album--and select our output settings. And like that, our Flash slideshow was created. Should you need it, help is available through a Help link that takes you to the program's Web site. Overall, we found Photo Flash Maker Free an easy-to-use, fun program for creating Flash slideshows.

Photo Flash Maker Free installs a desktop icon without permission, and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program for all users.

    I'm very impressed with this slideshow program. It has all I need. Really no watermarks or logo.

    "Not FREE, Large Water Marks & Logos on Output, $49.95"

    March 13, 2012   |   By Bidpal

    Version: Photo Flash Maker Free 5.42

    Pros

    Has a Wizard

    Cons

    It's NOT Free, Has Large Water Marks & Large Logos on output advertising their company for everybody to see, and they want $49.95 to remove those, leaves behind files when uninstalled.

    Summary

    This program was suppose to be Free, but it is Not, very sneaky to say Free, it has Very Large Water Marks on output, and it has their companies Logos' advertising their company for everybody to see, and to Remove the Water Marks and Logos' you have to pay them $45.95, this should have been mention on their listing so you would not have downloaded the program for nothing, also it leaves behind files in the Registry, and folders, I had to do a System Restore to fully remove the program.

    "I like this software!"

    September 26, 2011   |   By nancy2010nancy

    Version: Photo Flash Maker Free 5.39

    Pros

    I think this software is really gut. Photo Flash Maker Free is very easy to use. And there is wizard dialog to help you create slideshow, within three steps i can make beautiful slideshow.

    Cons

    It's better, if there are more free templates to use. And i really want to remove the ads at the end of slideshow.

    Summary

    Generally speaking, it works really gut.

    "Faulty installation"

    September 10, 2011   |   By myfreeware99

    Version: Photo Flash Maker Free 5.39

    Pros

    Don't know as couldn't use it

    Cons

    It kept asking me to install Photo Flash Player, which I already have - went round and round doing this. No use

    Summary

    Don't bother. I found Photo Story fine (free version - but make sure you don't download all the extra Windows Live stuff).

    "A practical software, and I like it!"

    August 21, 2011   |   By AmaZENG

    Version: Photo Flash Maker Free 5.38

    Pros

    Easy to use. Even I do not understand anything about embedding slideshow into website, I just copy the code the program generates and paste it into my web editor, then the flash banner is added.

    Cons

    Only dozens of slideshow templates are provided, if you need a splendid one for a special event, you may do some more optimization on the slideshow.

    Summary

    Anyway I like this program, and as a freeware it already meets my needs to make some simple slideshow and flash banners for building my website. Thanks for the programmers' contribution, but if possible, I hope them can add some more fashion slideshow templates.

    "Impossible to know if anything is happening!"

    August 21, 2011   |   By kscottyoung2

    Version: Photo Flash Maker Free 5.38

    Pros

    Final product did upload with music...

    Cons

    but at nearly each step I was unsure what was happening and if the program was working as I wanted it to...Some photos are sideways and I didn't know how or at what step to change that. Still don't... I'm not impressed.

    Summary

    Info that lets the user know if things are happening ("uploading" message, for example), how and when can edit individual photos (rotate!)...would really help a lot.
