This application makes creating an attractive Web photo gallery a very simple affair. Designing a photo album takes only minutes, as the app's attractive interface walks you through the entire process. First, you choose from one of the bundled templates, which range from holiday-theme designs to more standard ones that can be used for any subject matter. After adding your images, you can enter descriptive text and perform basic edits, such as rotation, color-level adjustment, and red-eye removal. FirmTools Album Creator Basic allows you to tweak its templates to your liking, letting you change the background color, switch the font style and size, specify the size of the thumbnails, and apply drop shadows. Generating a Web gallery is a matter of performing a few simple mouse clicks, and you'll then get the option to preview your page before generating HTML pages on your local machine. You can then choose to upload them to your site via FTP. Although the trial version won't let you create very large galleries, this program still makes a quality pick for folks looking for a fast way to share their photos.
