Flash Slideshow Software

Most of my weekend I was spent laboriously cating and consolidating my digital photo collection over the last 8 years. You would think that my nack for organization would have payed off in this area, but you’d be wrong. ;) It took combing through 4 old hard drives, multiple Ghost images, an Iomega Peerless Drive, and a Terapin Mine to consolidate my photos since 2000. I now have close to all of my 3,000 photos and videos accounted for.
I love software like Picasa for managing my photo collections and albums. However, I’m looking for something that can be easily viewed over the web. My thought was to use some simple flash-based photo/slideshow viewer to embed directly into the wiki. I’ve been collecting links for some flash-based slideshow applications and figured I’d give them a whirl. Here are the major ones that I’m aware of:
Flash slideshow maker - A wonderful photo slideshow maker which include 75+ slideshow templates and 220+ transition & Pan/Zoom effects. Enable you to add flash slideshow on website.
SlideShowPro - This application stuck me as quite impressive. The interface is visually appealing, Very nice! I decided to experiment with this one and see if it suits my needs.
WorldMap/TripperMap - This blew me away when I first saw it. Slideshows with Map integration. TripperMap supports FlickR right now, but support for other images sources is being developed.
