FLASH-Album creates amazing digital photographic 3D albums that
you can leaf through just as if you were leafing through a real book. Amazingly
you can create an album in under a minute and publish it to the web or local
hard drive it really is that easy. The user can completely personalize the
covers, and the pages with a choice of different covers, backgrounds,
decorations, frames and animated clip-art. The frame decorations and both static
and animated clipart can be resized and rotated with in the program and text
boxes can be placed on the pages too. You can import JPG background images for
covers and page backgrounds and drop SWF files. There is of course an Image
preview (zoom option) and you can opt to print only the images or print the
whole page with image, text and background. There is also an option to set the
compression quality. Multi images can be placed on pages and page turning can be
set to auto (speed adjustable) or manual.
Included in the program is free web space to publish your albums through one
click though the more experienced can upload to their own sites outside of the
program. The user can also send the url of the album by email from within the
program. There are extra graphics packs available for those who can't be
bothered producing their own.
I found this a joy to use and the results are very impressive and would easily
be improved by someone with a more artistic eye than I have. The program does
require Macromedia Flash Player 6, which is freely available and costs nothing.
This is well worth a look.
