Here I choose Flash gallery Factory which has Gallery and Slideshow two modes, you can make 3D flash image gallery, animated flash slideshow, flash banner and flash album with 50 flash photo templates. In addition, in Slideshow Mode, you can custom the template according to your idea. Just few steps will lead you how to customize your own Halloween scenes slideshow.You can get the Flash gallery Factory free trial version to have a try. Step 1: Choose a mood to create Halloween scenes slideshow

Install the flash gallery software and and choose the mode between Gallery Mode and Slideshow Mode, only the templates are different,gallery mood has cool 3D .Either Gallery mode or Slideshow Mode is ok to create Halloween scene slideshow. Here I choose Slideshow Mode.


Step 2: Import cool Halloween scene pictures

The program will go to "Browse" tab by default .Click "Add photo" button to add your photos or just drag the photos to “storyboard”. Then click "Add music" to add background Halloween music. The music in MP3/WMA/WAV formats and digital photos in BMP/JPEG/JPG/PNG formats are all acceptable.


Step 3: Select template for Halloween scene picture slideshow

Go to "Template Tab" and select your favorite templates from the 60+ ready-to-use wonderful templates. Or you can custom template (Slideshow Mode only) to make your Halloween cartoon animation as well. See below thumbnail to get more information.


Step 4: Set transition effects for your Halloween scene slideshow

There are 62 transition effects and 10 motion effects for you to make your Halloween scene slideshow more animated. You just need to drag the transition effects to the middle of the two photos in storyboard. To set motion effects, you need to drag the effects on the certain photos.


Step 5: Preview and publish Halloween scene slideshow

Preview your photo slideshow by click the start button in the bottom of the right screen. If you are satisfied with your work, you can publish it in SWF, HTML or EXE formats, or you can mail the flash photo slideshow to your friends directly as a gift.
If you want to embed the web photo slideshow on web page, MySpace or Blogger, please publish it to SWF or HTML formats.


1. You can edit your photos and background music by click the "Edit photo" and "Edit music" button above storyboard on Browse tab.
2. The duration time for each photo can be revised by double click the default value under the photo in Browse or Template Tab or right click the photo by revising the "Photo Properties".
3. You can put your flash album to your blog, MySpace or websites for sharing with your friends.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
