Editors' Review

+
This program makes creating slide shows and screensavers a breeze, though you'll trade configurability for that ease of use. PhotoJam's interface is basically a step-by-step wizard that walks you through the entire creation process, though we didn't appreciate that the program hijacks your entire screen and can't be resized to windowed mode. Making a slide show is a three-step process. You simply add a folder of images, choose from a variety of preset music, then select a display style. We wished for the ability to add our own MP3s as a sound track, but the trial version disables this feature, along with the publishing tool. We would also have liked to choose our own transitions and set our own image-interval times, but PhotoJam limits you to the effects and display times found in its templates. You can share your slide shows via e-mail but if you want to make a screensaver, you'll need to download additional components from the Web. PhotoJam is best for those seeking a hassle-free, paint-by-the-numbers solution; those seeking a high level of control should look elsewhere.

"Basic slide show building program with several drawbacks"

March 01, 2005  |  By PicMan

 |  Version: PhotoJam 3.0

Pros

Some nice "style" effects (e.g., falling snowflakes). Background music can be played.

Cons

I didn't like the way it took over the entire screen. There appeared to be no automatic picture ordering. Even though "full screen" display is used, the pictures only take up half of this area. Limited picture navigation in "controls" mode, no navigation in slide show mode. I was unable to get a picture's caption to display along with the picture. Can't select your own background music in the evaluation version. No foreground music.

"Lots of transitions but unpredictable during show"

August 21, 2004  |  By JJLL

 |  Version: PhotoJam 3.0

Summary

The flash-based transitions are great and impressive. However, there's no way to control the random factors in any transition and can't save or export in any standard formats (MPEG, AVI, SWF, etc.)

Summary

I had PhotoJam 2 and I enjoyed it. It was nice and easy. This version is too complicated with items that I can't be bothered with.

"Confusing!"

December 05, 2002

 |  Version: PhotoJam 3.0

Summary

I was unpleasantly surprised after downloading the trial version of PhotoJam 3. I had great expectations given how much I loved using PhotoJam 2. But they really screwed up this version, making it truly complicated, unnecessarily so, to use. Try SimpleStar's PhotoShow 2 instead. Same set of features but way, way easier to use.
