The idea from the base is really nice; there's a lot of themes and customization is possible. Easy to understand and use. But they are the only good points!
As it was said precedently, Flash Factory Deluxe is way too expensive for a software full of issues :
- Impossible to use attached letters fonts; working with them is possible, but when you produce the file, letters are cutted.
- Issue with the "keep aspect ratio" when customizing templates;
- Impossible to resize pictures holders; possibility is there, but results in pixelised photos;
- Preloading animations are automatically stopped when using no intro;
And a lot more issues.
Dont try to get some help from the company, they reply kindly but always says no change will be done and they cannot do nothing to fix these numerous problems.
I bought it for my company, and it cost me 2 years of continuously work as the final result is never acceptable to be sold.
A complete waiste of time and money!! BEWARE!! Dont buy and search the web for a best software! Company isnt working on this software for years and never fixes issues! Only one update in 2 years and ALL issues are still there. Disrespectfull for clients! AVOID!
It's not a bad product when it works but beware that you will not be able to upload to your server if it's using SSL like mine does. I have to publish locally and then upload *ALL* of the files, both xml files as well as over 600 images every time I wish to make an update to a clients photo gallery. I've asked for SSL to be added and they said they'll see. That was a year ago and still no SSL so I have to do it the old fashioned way.
It broke today. It now will no longer start up, it throws an application error, something about reading memory and Flash.ocx etc. I now have to make changes to clients galleries completely manually, which means uploading both an image and a thumbnail and then hand editing the xml files to make the new images show up in the clients galleries. I'm still waiting for a response from Wondershare on this issue, but I doubt that I'll get anything usefull and will now have to spend literally hundreds of hours converting all clients galleries to a competiting product assuming I can find a good one.
$59.99 is very high for a product that simply writes out xml files and makes a thumbnail image out of the images you provide. Look elsewhere.
