The installation of SoThink SWF Easy is easy and intuitive, you can place the program files where you want them. There is a small thing that SoThink products do that I appreciate, they don't assume that you want Desktop and Quick Launch icons they ask. Plus SoThink products allow you the ability to put their products under the Start Menu Programs that you prefer.

When you first start SoThink SWF Easy you are informed it is a 30 day evaluation product. More than fair.

When you first start SoThink SWF Easy you are given a Wizard type Window with these choices, Blank Document, Album, Banner, and Navigation Buttons. You are given the option of disabling this window at startup.

First off the Album, in the first window you are given two choices of albums flip, or normal, I tried out flip. First I selected my photos, next my page size, my covers (front and back) and background. Then Create. I was then told: After this wizard finishes, please use "File->Publish" menu to publish the album. Does that sound easy enough to you to create a professional looking Flash Album? Golly I sure hope it does because I'm sure impressed.

Next the Banner Wizard. First select from a number of templates. Then in the next window you are given the option of customizing the banner elements or generate the banner now and edit the elements yourself later. I picked the first option. The next window lets you select the Background and Size Settings. After that a series of windows to edit the text. Then the url to link to and the Target settings. That was it after in pushed the Create, I got this in about 10 seconds: After this wizard finishes, please use "File->Publish" menu to publish the banner. When I did that I was given three choices: Export Flash movie (*.swf), Insert Flash movie (*.swf) to HTML file, View or copy HTML code. So in the making of the banner, cool templates, easy to customize, great export options.

Then I tried out the navigation buttons option. You are first given the choice a whole bunch of really neat buttons to base yours on. I created three buttons with of course different text and leading to three different urls in about 30 seconds. When I was done I was told that my next step was to do File/Publish. When I did that I was given three choices: Export Flash movie (*.swf), Insert Flash movie (*.swf) to HTML file, View or copy HTML code. Just like in the other two great button templates easy to use professional results.

In conclusion SoThink SWF Easy really lives up to it's name, it is really easy to use. Plus it gives you professional results, The price is right. I heartily recommend it.
