AnvSoft Photo Flash Maker Professional is an application with a pretty self-explanatory name - it allows you to create albums and slideshows in Flash, so you can publish them on your websites.

The tool is wrapped in a clean and intuitive interface. Thanks to the Explorer-based layout, you can easily locate and import pictures into the album.

So, you can add transitions (e.g. random, wipe, vertical window blind) and insert dynamic text (e.g. set color, angle, distance, blur level).

Furthermore, you can rotate, flip and crop images, insert art clip and art effects (e.g. contour, wave, depth dim), as well as edit their properties (e.g. image title and link, transition effect and duration).

Additionally, you can apply a theme (e.g. Merry Christmas, Easter, Vacation, Travel) and configure Flash options (e.g. album title, size, frame rate, auto replay, show control buttons).

Once you are satisfied with the results, you can create the output file (Flash file only, gift/presentation CD/DVD, Flash files and upload them to Go2Album) and change options when it comes to the output folder and Flash embed method, along with the Flash and HTML file name.

The program requires a moderate-to-high amount of system resources to complete a job in reasonable time. It is very responsive and includes a help file. We have not come across any problems during our tests; AnvSoft Photo Flash Maker Professional did not freeze, crash or pop up errors. On the downside, you cannot set the tool to turn off the computer or to open the output directory when the task is done.
