Best of Webalbums

1 Comment

There are plenty of paid offerings to choose from in this category of software, but I’ve found several free programs on CNET.com that do the job nicely. The best Web album software provides ways to host your work on the Web so all you’ll need is some creativity and your already honed photo-snapping skills.

Photozig Albums Express

Photozig Albums Express offers a step-by-step process so you can design your project from start to finish. Big button icons with descriptions make it easy to start your project and select the preferred output for your images including sending in e-mail, burning to a CD, or uploading to a Web site. The finished product is a basic layout of thumbnails that you can click to enlarge, but you’ll have no skins to choose from with this one. The Photozig Web site requires you register with an e-mail address, but you’ll be able to display your albums on the Web for free once you’re signed up. For basic albums, this is the one to choose.

Web Photo Album is another simple free album creator offering several nice (if sometimes cheesy) templates. A nice interface layout makes it easy to find the pictures you want and quickly create a simple album. It offers basic editing functions like red-eye removal and picture rotation, and you can add captions to each picture. The finished product comes out as a page of thumbnails and once you click on a picture, you’re given a close up with the ability to navigate to other shots across the top of the page. Though there are a staggering number of themes to choose from to match your pictures, your overall layout is unchangeable. Web Photo Album lets you sign up for the free Photo hosting service, or you can save to a folder to burn to CD or post to your own site.

JAlbum

JAlbum for both PC and Mac users is one of my long-time favorite free Web album programs. It doesn’t direct you through the process like Photozig, but a quick look through the menus will be enough for you to get started creating great Web albums. There are several great-looking templates and skins to choose from, with more skins available at the JAlbum Web site. An integrated FTP program makes it easy to post albums to your Web site or blog. The JAlbum site also lets you post your projects to their Web hosting service for free, but as with the others, you’ll need to register with a name and e-mail address.

With spring weather returning, you’re going to have a lot of chances to snap some great pictures. Use one of these free Web album programs to turn your pictures into a nice project that’s easy to share with anyone.

Wii gets streaming TV from BBC

1 Comment

Wii iPlayer BBC

Wii owners have reason to cheer for. The BBC’s iPlayer TV catch-up service is making its way to the Nintendo Wii today. British residents who navigate to www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer using Opera’s Internet Channel browser will be greeted by the same selection of streaming programs made available for PC users.

The BBC promises to bring a slightly updated version in the coming months that will add additional functionality, the same way Opera did with the specially designed version of its browser made just for the Wii. Best of all, it will be a standalone channel app. The BBC’s Anthony Rose hopes this will fit the needs of users who don’t want to have to load up the browser and navigate to their iPlayer bookmark, or pay for the Internet application in the first place.

This is the first time the iPlayer has made its living room debut. Previously the only way to get iPlayer programming on your TV set was by hooking up your home PC or laptop to your television. I’m glad to know this announcement as I was looking for a way to watch TV on my Wii.
