PhotoEchoes

PhotoEchoes allows users to turn their images into a kaleidoscope-style presentation or screensaver. The program is fairly easy to use and has some nice features, making it a good choice for users who enjoy manipulating their photos.

The program's interface is basic and is organized into tabs. Users select the folder or folders that contain the photos they want to use, which can be filtered by file name. Users can optionally include music, although we couldn't get this feature to work; we navigated to the folder that contains our music, but the program didn't recognize it. Users can then customize the kaleidoscope effects that are applied to the images. The results, which can be viewed as a slideshow or set to play as the default screensaver, are like looking at each image through a shifting kaleidoscope. The program's built-in Help file is adequate.

Overall, we liked the way the program worked and thought it had a good variety of features. We especially liked that as users are watching the slideshow, they can press Enter at any time to capture the image on the screen. Thus, if you particularly like one of the effects that the program applies to an image, you can easily save it. Although we were disappointed that we couldn't get the program to play our music, it was otherwise quite enjoyable. PhotoEchoes has a 21-day trial period and puts a watermark on output created with the trial version. The program installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.
