Family Album In The Digital Age


Back then it was simple - you take the picture, you print it and put it in your family album. But now you have a digital camera. So do your cousins, uncles, aunts and grandpa Joe. What are you going to do with thousands of digital photos to pass them onto the future generations? Read our advice.

What you need is a digital photo album. Here are some good ones so you know what to start with.

InAlbum

InAlbum is a fun and easy to use software to turn your digital photos into a stunning photo slideshow. Start with ready to use templates or custom templates which let you mix & match background animations, buttons, photo frames and transition effects. Decorate with animated clipart, speech bubbles, sounds, MP3 music and your own voices. InAlbum gives you more output options than any other slideshow softwares. Create video CDs that are playable on TVs using standard VCD / DVD player. Build screensavers for yourself or others. Make self-contained executable slideshows. Write autorun CDs that automatically play when inserted into a PC. Print photos and make wallpaper. Share via email and host your shows online for free.

Pics Print

Pics Print is a Windows application that makes it simple to format and print high-quality photos, greeting cards, contact sheets, and family albums. Using wizards and templates, you can quickly grab images from digital cameras, scanners or disk, make color corrections and add style to them, resize and annotate them, and print them using your printer's highest quality settings. Pics Print's folder browser lets you find images fast. With an intuitive Explorer-like folder tree and high-quality thumbnails of all of the images in that folder, identifying the right picture is quick and easy. You can retrieve photos directly from any digital camera, and create a contact sheet with a single click. Using standard drag-and-drop techniques, you can move the thumbnail images to the final document, resize them, add text, and print them for friends and family. The program includes WYSIWYG printing. The print preview screen lets you move, resize, and rotate images, so you'll never waste time or ink on pages that aren't exactly what you expect. Pics Print has a built-in photo editor that lets you crop, resize, rotate, and color-correct images. Users who enjoy adding artistic effects to their photos can blur, emboss, and sharpen the images, add borders, and produce an unlimited variety of creative touches. There is even a red-eye remover that takes out the red circles that the camera's flash often adds to portraits.
