Photo Slideshow Maker Free Version

CNET 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.

    "Not as good as Free Slideshow Maker"

    November 29, 2013  |   By jaksen_wang

    Version: Photo Slideshow Maker Free Version 5.57

    Pros

    Bring my photos to life

    Cons

    Support importing and editing videos? NO!!! So i've found another free slideshow maker that can help me turn digital photos and video clips into flash slideshow,thumbnail gallery,flash album and flash presentation.
    Just let more guys know this app. CHEERS!
