Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer

My digital imaging students have learned how to use Photoshop during this semester and are putting together a presentation using a free product from Microsoft called Photostory.

Here's some information about Photostory.

Photo Story 3 includes features that enable you to create a slideshow with your digital pictures, edit your pictures, create your story with original music, add narration, and share them with your family and friends.

Create a photo story. You can create a photo story that includes motion, narration, and music. Photo Story 3 includes dramatic pan and zoom effects, picture rotation, and cropping tools to customize your photos. You can also compose an original soundtrack from directly within Photo Story 3, narrate your story and add special effects, transitions, and much more.

Edit and save your photo story. The new smart touch-up features make it easy to instantly remove red eye, and correct the lighting in your pictures. There are also several different options for saving a story and its associated project so that you can edit the story later or share it immediately.

Import pictures. If you have a collection of pictures on an MSN Group Web site, you can import these pictures into your photo stories.

You can add special effects to the presentation and add voice or music as well.

There are several ways to save and playback as well. For my class, I was able to burn a dvd and then give it to my student to playback on their home television. There's a save to a pocket pc for playback or even a smartphone.

All in all, it's worth taking a look at if you have a group of images that you want to present.
