Organizes your pictures into Web albums
- Very straightforward to use
- Allows scripting for advanced users
- Photos can be linked to sound
- Very limited interface
- No basic editing features
Organising photos is an increasingly difficult task with so many digital media from phones, to cameras to video camera now able to take your favourite snaps.
I've tried every program going and whilst this is not the the best looking, it's certainly simple enough for anyone to use from parents to children and brings some semblance of organisation to your photo collection. The program works very simply - just select the pictures you want, select a template and watch Album Express assemble your creations in no time. You have some pretty basic navigation tools to look through your photos. However, it's not just aimed at novices because it also allows scripting plugins for those who know how to although the instructions about how to do this are frustratingly hard to find. If you can however, it allows you to build your own templates and display styles. One extra added little touch is that you can link photos to MIDI and WAV files for an extra touch of class.
It's all here for anyone who wants a simple but functional photo viewer although it's not really a touch on Picassa.
