Flash Slideshow Effects
More than 100 transition and pan/zoom effects are available to use. This is the main reason why I choose this program. The other several programs I used don't have this much effects like this program. After set all effects for each images, right click on one photo on the Story Board to set the "Duration Setting". Set "Picture Duration" as 4.5 sec and "Transition Duration" as 2 sec, then check the option "Apply all settings to all pictures".
Decorate Your Flash Christmas E-card
"Decorate" your photo with texts. Poems and words are always great additions to express your feelings or send wishes. Here various stylish fonts are available for you to choose in the software.
Click "New Text" to add texts, select font, size, color, text effect, etc. for your photos. Here I select Font "Eras Light", Size "22", Color "Light Orange", Effect "Fade".
3 Publish Flash Christmas E-card
Modify some "Publish Settings" to make the flash greeting E-card the best. Click "Publish Settings", first change the Slideshow Size as the same as your photos' size then other settings like play control, you can just leave them if you don't need to change. After done these, click "Create SWF Movie" to publish your flash greeting E-card.
OK. Now make your own Christmas flash greeting cards or Christmas video greeting Ecard and email to everyone you care about.
