Microsoft HTML Slideshow Wizard
Microsoft HTML Slideshow Wizard is a simple tool that allows you to create a slideshow which can be viewed in an HTML page.
The user interface of the program consists of a wizard in which you can add individual images and folders containing the pictures by using the file browser or the "drag and drop" method.
In the next step, you can input a slideshow and author name, select the output destination, as well as picture size (you can keep the current picture size or choose a predefined one).
You can also select the slideshow type (simple or advanced, and optionally enable full screen mode) and set Microsoft HTML Slideshow Wizard to resize only the pictures that are larger than the dimension you have selected.
Once the wizard completes the task, you can view your newly created slideshow in an HTML image. Now you can use the code found in those files to upload images and share them with your friends.
When you open the slideshow, you are first informed that it has been created with a Microsoft product, after which you can view images in a simplistic manner. If you have selected "advanced slideshow type" in the wizard, you can either view a simple image slideshow or a film strip, but you can also preview thumbnails.
The program consumes a moderate amount of system resources and is simple to use, even by beginners. However, we are a bit disappointed, since we expected Microsoft HTML Slideshow Wizard to allow you to directly publish your slideshow online (at least on social network websites).
There isn't even a user documentation to guide you in this direction so, mainly power users could handle this part of the process. Otherwise, Microsoft HTML Slideshow Wizard is a simple software for putting together a slideshow.
