Softpedia Editor's Review for InAlbum
Create and share your photo album with videos, animatios, sounds, and music
Written by Elena Opris on March 22nd, 2012
InAlbum is an application that allows you to create, design and share a photo album.
Once you initialize the program with the simplistic and easy-to-use interface, you can start a new project which can be a show, print (e.g. sticker, greeting card), e-card or collage.
So, you can get started by giving a name to your project and by assigning it to a folder location (choose a preset or create your own one).
But you can also start a template from scratch or select a sample from a vast list.
After you select your images by using the Explorer-based layout, you can add a caption, adjust the brightness and contrast levels, as well as apply various effects (e.g. blur, sharpen, old film, posterize, oil painting).
Now you can select a template, decorate the show by inserting various elements (e.g. clip art, speech bubble, sound, voice recording), configure settings (e.g. set photo transition delay, choose a thumbnail), and others.
Once you are satisfied with the results, you can send the project via email, publish it on Facebook, make it available online, create an HTML file, screen saver, wallpaper, executable or interactive CD/DVD, and more.
The application uses a very high amount of system resources and includes a comprehensive help file with snapshots. No errors have popped up during our tests. However, InAlbum generally has a very slow response time (you may even think the application has frozen). Otherwise, we strongly recommend it to all user levels.
