Editors' Review

Virtual Album Maker Standard is a virtual photo album maker that allows users to easily create attractive electronic photo albums. Although it's not the most sophisticated program we've ever seen, its ease of use makes it a good choice for this type of task.

The program's interface is particularly intuitive, walking users through each step of the album creation process. There are several templates to choose from, including calendars and collage-style albums. Users then customize the album cover and background, choose music (the program comes with a handful of MIDI files, or users can use their own songs), select the photos they want to include, and then choose how they want to save the album. Album makers that are this automated typically do not offer a whole lot in the way of customization, and Virtual Album Maker Standard is no exception, but it does offer multiple backgrounds and the ability to upload others. We also found it helpful that the program includes some very rudimentary photo-editing options, including brightness control and a cropping feature. The program has a poorly written online Help file, but it's really not necessary; we didn't find anything that we had questions about.

Virtual Album Maker Standard has a 20-day trial period, and the trial version disables some features and puts a watermark on its output. The program installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users, particularly beginners.

"Excellent"

May 05, 2008  |  By TheoMK

 |  Version: Virtual Album Maker Standard 1.35.2590

Pros

I was always interested for a an album giving the impression of a real album with fliping pages. I tried many of them, but I must say that Virtual Album Maker Standard is by far the best.

Cons

Try it and you will know what I mean.

"Excellent album"

April 04, 2008  |  By Theo K

 |  Version: Virtual Album Maker Standard 1.34.2587

Pros

I believe, Virtual Album Maker Standard is the best album someone could find. It gives an authentic sense of turning the pages of a real album.

Also the price of it is good. This is the reason why I bought it.

Cons

Words are words: You better try it.

"Problematic album"

December 03, 2006  |  By Elina*

 |  Version: Virtual Album Maker Standard 1.32

Pros

Though interesting in appearance, finaly this album is no good, as the photos we attach loose a very significant amound of details and clarity.

Also, this program does not accept any PDF files, so that the user could attach comments, notes or memorandums.

I wonder whow other reviewers arrived to write positive opinions about it.

Cons

I do not recommend it.

"I am sure, this is the top album"

September 19, 2006  |  By Strimon

 |  Version: Virtual Album Maker Standard 1.32

Pros

I installed it as a trial first and I could not find any weakness. With Virtual Album Maker everything works, and the user can do anything. I can send my album to my friends: The program creats only a file, and the people I send it they only have to click on it, and my photos are there as a real album, with very convincing graphics and flipping pages as a real book. Very realistic!

The program is very simple to use it. So, I bought it.

Cons

Now, I am very happy with the choice I made. More and more I like it. I dare to say it is perfect. Give it a try...

"An amazing album"

September 19, 2006  |  By Mirabilis

 |  Version: Virtual Album Maker Standard 1.32

Pros

I was searching all around the web for a good quality album and found that this is a rather difficult thing. All of them had something good and something I wouldn't like. Some were small, some other not realy giving the impression of a real book. Some other ones not easy to use and most of them would require the installation of a separate viewer...

All these up to the moment I found Virtual Album Maker. With this all problems stoped: This album is giving the best impression of turning the pages of a REAL book. It is so real! It is big, so that the pictures in it are not small. The quality of them is perfect (when our photos are perfect, of course...).

An other great advantage is that Virtual Album Maker creats an exe file, containing our photos and the viewer doesn't need any special program installed to his/her PC. Just a bouble click on the file produced by this program, and the album is presented fully. Amazing thing!

Cons

The virtues of this program do not stop here: You can draw your own front cover and back cover, you can choose the texture of paper within the pages. You can also choose the background texture and also you can add and your music to go with the opening of the album.

In two words: Virtual Album Maker does everything you might like and ask from a very advanced photo album.

Try it.

"Sense of a real book - album"

September 17, 2006  |  By Theo K

 |  Version: Virtual Album Maker Standard 1.32

Pros

This book or album (take it and use it as you like it for photos or text) is by far the best software in its field. This is not a fast and rough expression. Try it, and you will find out by yourselfs the confirmation of what I say:

* It presents the most realistic sense of a book or album, with turning pages.

* It gives you the possibility to customize the appearance of the front page (but not and the back page).

* It gives a choice of a virtual texture for the appearance of the pages.

* The most important of all is that with "Virtual Album Maker Standard 1.32" you creat a stand-alone EXE file, Which you can send by e-mail or distribute copies of it, and the receiver can by clicking on the EXE file see and read the pages of the book - album, without the need of any kind of "viewer".

Cons

In two words, this an exceptional piece of software in a very good price. The only need for further developement is the possibility for a better representation of text within the pages of the program. But, as I am informed by the developer, this improvement is something that already the developement team is working to improve.

However, anyone who searches for a very good photo album, will find "Virtual Album Maker Standard 1.32" far better than any other album could be found around.

Thumbs up for "Virtual Album Maker Standard 1.32".
