The guys over at Airtight Interactive have avaiable TOTALLY FOR FREE an awesome Flash slideshow for download and use for both personal and commerical use called SimpleViewer. Very simple in design and easy to use, with detailed instructions for both manual and application based customization, this is the best I’ve seen online, especially for free!
Here at the ‘day job,’ I’ve had to put together a slide show of a ton of pictures from a recent event and do not have the patience or time to put together one myself. So after searching online for 2 hours for a free slideshow template or service, I found SimpleViewer and I am very, VERY pleased!
PS: Airtight Interactive has serveral other FREE viewers for photos you can download. They also have a great collection of fun and some demo type flash projects. Definately good for some insipiration or tips.
