Photolightning is easy and quick to use, but it takes time to get acquainted with the 1-2-3 process. If you have a large number of photos, you probably have a specific naming process that you follow, making sorting extremely important for creating either photo albums or slideshows. The sort feature was difficult to find but it was very easy once I figured it out.

In step one, the removal of redeye, cropping, and the ability to rotate or adjust an individual photo all worked as stated. In step two, you can rename a photo ... or add a caption which works great to enhance slideshows. In step three, sending multiple photos by email is a snap, but the photo album was disappointing. I'd like the ability to create a photo album without having to purchase another program first. The slideshow creates EXE files which also allows you to go back or forward to view the photos.

This slideshow feature is wonderful and gets my vote for my family photo slideshows.
