Life Photo Maker enables users to animate their photos by adding music, weather, and water effects. Though we would have liked to see more slideshow options, the program was simple and fun to use.

The program's clean and attractive interface makes it easy to get started with your project. Choose the New option and the program will direct you. It is not a traditional image-manipulating program, and its effects would be best enjoyed onscreen. The program allows you to add water and snow effects to your photos, as well as add sound for background music and animated screensavers. Users also have the ability to use some of the built-in masks, which vary the degree of distortion that the water effects cause. Other masks are available, but require an upgrade and payment for the Pro version. Effects are added to your images by applying masks to them, or by using the Drawing Tool. Users unfamiliar with photo editing software might not understand how masks are used, but the program's Help file describes how they work. We wished that the program had a way to create a slideshow using several images to which the user could apply various effects and weather, but that did not appear to be an option.

The program installs and runs efficiently, but it will install a shortcut on your desktop. Overall, we think that the program was designed to be simple, and with a variety of effects to choose from, users of all skill levels will find have fun using the program.
