There are many ways to create photo albums, but Flash is probably the one that produces the most visually appealing results. If not, check out Fortop Album Creator and see what it can do for you.
This simple application enables you to generate stunning Flash photo albums in a quick, easy way. The program includes a wide selection of templates ready to be used and supports background music as well. All you need to do is select a template, choose the photos and music for your album and let Fortop do the job.
The albums can be generated as HTML documents or SWF files, which include images, sound, transition effects, EXIF data and even a slideshow. Luckily enough the program is quite easy to use: otherwise you'd find yourself in trouble, because the Help section needs serious improvement.
