Aleo Flash Slideshow Gallery Maker provides
easy tools for making slideshows.
The program's interface is a breeze to manage, due in
part to a Wizard that walks you through every step of
the process. We never needed to consult the Help file,
because the onscreen directions are so strong. You can
coordinate the speed and effects of your slideshow by
clicking a handful of options on the first screen. From
there, you choose either photos, videos, or both to include
in the show, and arrange them to your liking. You can
save your slideshow as a simple Flash file or as a Flash
Gallery, which produces HTML, SWF, and XML files. The
Flash Gallery accommodates users with greater expertise,
but we can't see most people making much use of it. Regardless,
our slideshow turned out well, with a professional look,
and was ready to embed on a Web site. The program's best
feature is its capability to add background music with
a single button, which spices up your slideshows substantially.
We were pleased with the ease and results of this program
and felt it was a strong choice for beginners and experts
and easy to use

Pros: powerful, easy to use
Cons: none, happy with it.
Summary: I tested a bunch of flash slide show maker
software, and this one is the best. It's so powerful,
i made a slide show header banner, a photo gallery, a
video gallery and a news roller banner for my website,
and all with just $39. And the pan zoom maker function
is also very helpful to make professional slide show.
product, great support

Pros: It's easy to use, allows a lot of control and once
you get the hang of it, makes a tedious, fiddly job easy
to do in a snap. Most of all, the support was prompt,
helpful and human, not just a redirection to hopeless
Cons: Not everything is completely intuitive so it takes
a little while figure out what each bit does.
Summary: I have now bought three of Aleo's products
and before that spent a lot of time trawling the net and
trying out test versions of various products. This is
by far the best I found and at a very reasonable price.
What really made me a fan though, was the fact that when
I couldn't work out how to do something, they answered
my query quickly and kept in contact until it was sorted
out. In my experience this is a rare and wonderful thing.
I highly recommend the software and company.
