If you want to create and share a photo gallery and don’t know where to start from, here’s a recommendation: the Slideroll Gallery AV application. Slideroll Gallery AV is created with this sole purpose of letting you easily create photo galleries which you can then share with anyone you want.
The first thing you’ll notice about this application is the original yet easy-to-use interface. I personally like the combination between the unique design and simplicity. The wizard-like, step-by-step approach to creating the picture galleries is also a big plus. At first you add the photos using drag-and-drop. Then you can caption or rotate them. The next step involves editing the layout and the background colors of the gallery. The last one is selecting how you want to share the newly-created gallery: either by publishing it online, by uploading it to an FTP server or by exporting it to an SWF Flash file. I appreciate the possibility of exporting the gallery to an SWF file, as this kind of file can be easily transferred, carried around and opened on almost any computer.
I’d say that the main advantage of Slideroll Gallery AV is its simplicity. For those that don’t need any intricate settings or special features, Slideroll Gallery AV is a great choice.
