 Excellent simple to use photo gallery maker using supplied themes (Pro users get all 56 for free) which are a mixture of Flash and HTML. Each theme has its own settings such as thumbnails size, distance between thumbnails, color of background with the possibility to add background files (music and images) etc. that all will help you to customize the web gallery and give it an optimum appearance. You can also create your own themes and share them on the users gallery.

You can import photos directly from your digital camera (your camera needs to have TWAIN support). The program also automatically reads EXIF information from photos. You can add it as image comment or image title. EXIF format support enables lossless rotation and image color correction and speeds up program operation time.

Included is a built-in PhotoEnhancer tool where you can eliminate red-eye, perform colour correction, rotate, crop and flip your photos. The program supports its own album projects which enables you to make corrections to previously composed albums (add/remove photos, substitute template, change comments etc) and AlbumCreator has built-in FTP support that allows to upload and manage your photo albums.

All in all a very easy to use and highly customisable piece of software which is well worth the money.
