Wife Appreciation

Yesterday, Sept. 16, is National Wife Appreciation Day. Different from the Valentine's Day or a wedding anniversary, this occasion focuses on honoring, appreciating rather than sharing.

Why appreciate wife? There is no answer here, for you know how important she will be!

How to appreciate wife? It's really simple! My father did a whole day housework for my mom. One of my friend sent her wife a bundle of red roses. Gary made an e-card for my sister! And so on. What's your gift? NO? Well, it's never too late to send your wife a surprise!

I think it's excellent to make a flash photo album for her? How do you say? Good luck!

Give Me Just This Moment, Please, Forever
By Nicholas Gordon

Give me just this moment, please, forever.
Replicate it for me on demand.
As I flow unceasingly downriver,
Do not make me leave this day behind.
Understand my bittersweet confusion
As graduation crystallizes youth,
Tallying my treasures with precision,
Illuminating wistfully my wealth.
Out of all my moments pluck this one,
Nor let me lose its grace until I'm gone.

Create a flash banner for your website

If you admire the website of sb’s, embedded impressive swf banners, and puzzle that why they make such snazzy transitions. In fact, it’s as easy as ABC with the help of some slideshow program.

BTW, My favorite is Wondershare Flash SlideShow Builder.

Here’s the sample:


quality="high" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" swLiveConnect="true"

Step 1. Prepare several pre-made images for your slideshow banner. I’ve got 5 in this banner.

Step 2. Browse. Add the images from your local drive to the story line. Click the Add button or double click the image. Drag and drop is fine, too.

Step 3. Transition Effect. Use Basic type effect and choose Fade, then apply to all. Set the duration of each slide (the number below and on the right of the image). Of course, you could select other transition effects. But I think Fade will be more suitable for a banner transition effects.

Step 4. Theme. Do remember to choose NONE (the first one).

Step 5. Publish. Use the settings and custom slide size exactly the same with your images, my setting is 571*156. Unclick Play with control bar and if you like, click the Display the preloader when loading Flash Movie. Then publish as swf or HTML.


1. Click Edit to make optimization of your images.

2. The higher image conversion quality you choose, the larger the final result will be.

3. Preview your slideshow before publish it.

SlideShow Software Review

Perhaps you have lots of funny or memorial photos, and would like a make a flash slideshow. However, you know nothing about flash, xml, JavaScript. So what? Well, don't waste your time and effort trying to master it from now on, unless you have enough time, money and patience. Searching in GOOGLE, you will find bundles of easy-to-use, nice and inexpensive tools for non-experts, like you and me!
Yep, I say, bundles of tools. So, what to look for in slideshow software?

1. Ease of Use.

The slideshow software should be easy to master. WYSIWYG interface is most important. Do remember, we’re not experts in Flash. Our purpose is to make a slideshow as easily as possible.

2. Features.

Transition effect is something attracting users most. Therefore, a large number of transitions are necessary, which make your slideshows more attractive. And software should have existing library, which means preset photos, music, background pictures, template, clipart, etc. are included. The software should also allow users to drag and drop photos from outside source, and control the duration. It’s better if the program allows editing the photos to suit your slideshow, importing music or adding narration. Last but not least, the ability to preview before publishing.

3. Output Format.

Basically, the slideshow can be published as SWF format. Some software provides publishing as exe, html, screensaver or online album as well.

4. Support.

Good software manufacturers should at least provide tutorials or manual that guides a user how to create a slideshow step by step. FAQ is needed, too. That brings convenience on only to users, but also to the manufacturer. Of course, if possible, we also need phone, fax or online support.

Click here to have a look at the review of 4 similar software: FlashSlider, Amara Flash SlideShow Builder, SWF’n Slide, Wondershare Flash SlideShow Builder. There’s no rating for each program, for in my opinion, it’ll be 5-star software if it exactly meets your needs.

Creat a slideshow theme

I think some of you may have used Wondershare Flash SlideShow Builder. The software includes quite a lot of templates, which are nice and easy for beginner to use. But, are you interested in making your own style one?

Step 1: Use Theme Designer of the software. Start with opening Movie, then template, and ending movie last.

Step 2: Background mode. Choose the background mode – color or picture, that’s up to you! But color is a little humdrum. Usually, the opening movie should be attractive. So, in my opinion, it’s better to choose picture background mode. You can use the inside pictures (800*600), and of course, your own pictures (support bmp, jpg, jpeg file) are allowed.

Step 3: Clipart. There are eight sorts of clipart – Animal, Daily, Environment, Festival, Human, Text, Work and Other. More than 300 clipart can be chosen from. What I want to mention is that all the clipart are made with swf file. It means you could view the butterfly flying, the stars winking, etc.

Step 4: Text. Write down your presentation of the theme or the slideshow. Choose your fond font, size and color, and then drag it wherever you want. BTW, don’t forget to pick a text effect. For example, Fade, Zoom, Flying and so on.

Step 5: Template – photo frame. Select a photo frame or just let it empty. You can also drag the frame and scale it. Then set width, height, font, color, size of description text.

Step 6: Preview, Save and Export. After doing that all, you can click Preview to get a look at your artwork first. Then save it for further modification. The last step is to export it as a slideshow theme, so that it can be used again and again.

All is finished. Do you enjoy the process? Last but not least, enjoy yourself!

Create unique slideshow with funny words

Create slideshows easily and quickly just with some funny words

I downloaded several photos of some cuties. All of a sudden, I got an idea to make a flash slideshow and add some funny words. I’ve post that Slideshow on Google groups, and someone gave me a five-star rating. Follow my steps, and you can make a special one as well.

Step 1 Add photos to story line. I suggest optimizing them beforehand – it’ll look better if all the photos are in the same size in my opinion. This software supply basic editing, such as brightness, contrast, blur, sharpen, etc.

Step 2 Transition effect. There are too many transition effects for choosing, hence, I prefer the randomizing ability, and make a little change of one or two photos. It saves a lot of time.

Step 3 Add themes. Generally speaking, themes are suitable for different situation. Some of the themes are quite interesting for making a wedding slideshow or baby slideshow. If just wanting to embed the SWF file in your html page, however, you can choose No theme. Yep, there’s a creative way - that is to custom you own theme with clipart, text and photo frames.

Step 4 Write down your funny words. Begin with Edit >> Text settings.

 Photo description. Input the specific illustration to your photos. All the words are added still.

 Text list for spicing up your work. Click to in put any interesting captions. Then select your favorite animated effect, font and color to make the slideshow dramatic. The text effects include Fade, Fade and Zoom, Typewriter, Random, Explode, Target, Piano, Flying, Wink, Random color. The text can be dragged to any place you want. After this done, click to continue adding for next slide.

Step 5 Save your masterpiece as SWF, HTML, EXE, Screen saver or online album.
If what you want to write is too long, just make it in several rows, with same or different font, text effect and color as you like.

The slideshow made with no theme will be published in 4:3. Max size is 1600*1200.
