Free Photo Slide Show is a tool that creates photo presentations. This application has a classic design and a well-ordered interface. You can handle the program quite easily, since all the controls are displayed in the main window at close reach. The first step is to select the folder that contains the desired images. It supports almost all the popular image formats, such as GIF, JPG, BMP, ICO, PNG, TIFF, and so on. You can visualize every photo and you can also rotate it however you like. The Options menu allows you to modify the sequence of images, the transition effects, or the way the slides change. It displays a small preview where you can test 100 available effects and choose the one you like.
The 'Appearance' function gives you the possibility to change the scale of the images, to set the arranging mode and to select the background’s color or image. After you choose your preferences, you can set the application to start the slideshow. A quite annoying fact is that this program lacks the ability to delete an image from the presentation. If you accidentally misplace a photo in the selected folder, you can’t remove the picture from the slideshow.
In conclusion, this is a simple and good-working tool. It works fast and it sticks to the basic options of a slideshow. However, I think that some more editing options would have improved this application a lot. Another drawback is that you can't save the newly created slideshow so that you could use it later. This is not the best program of its kind, but considering the fact that it’s free, I think it’s worth a shot.
