AlbumWeb is a photo album authoring tool that lets you create beautiful HTML albums or slideshows from photos, video and voiceover narrations. To share the album with relatives and friends, the user can upload the album to FTP server, send by email as a ZIP archive, save locally to hard disk drive. Additional plug-ins enables the program to output the album to new formats and destinations, such as Picasa and Flickr.
Out of the box, the beginner can start a new project in a few minutes. Using the wizards, you can select a theme from the library of pre-made skins, set up album chapters, add photos and edit images using a wide variety of effects. For example, you can remove red eye, enhance contrast and resize the image. Changes to a photo are stored and displayed only in the album, while source files on the hard drive remain unchanged. To add more life to the album, the user can record a voiceover narration for a slideshow using the built-in audio recorder and microphone. The final step is to select the destination to output the album, which can be the local PC, network, or the Internet.
The program allows you to edit properties of an album, chapters and photos. Just select the item to edit and use the mouse and keyboard to enter name, description, keywords, rating, slideshow timing, and background music. Properties can be set for each photograph individually, or for several files all together. Unlike many Flash sites, the markup of AlbumWeb HTML gallery is search-engine friendly and can be indexed by all search engines.
AlbumWeb has the built-in theme editor for the user to create a custom theme that will adapt to the design of the existing website. You can define the layout for all pages of an HTML gallery and slideshow, set custom color for text, background, define the size of thumbnails and take care of everything else to create a gorgeous album.
