3 Best Online Slideshow Applications

I get a lot of email about the slideshows on my portfolio site. If you'd like to add something similar to your own site, it's easier than you think (especially if your husband is a web developer)! Here are my top recommendations. Feel free to add some of your own!

1. Slideshow Pro
This is an inexpensive Flash-based player that's easy to install, highly-customizable, and relatively easy to update. Nice smooth transitions and awesome controls. My top choice!

2. SimpleViewer
You can't beat free! Especially when it works this well. If you are looking for a lightweight, easy-to-implement image slideshow app, SimpleViewer is great!

3. Polaroid Gallery
This one is really fun! A script loads images and image titles dynamically from an external XML file. Then the script processes the data and creates an interactive flash gallery in which all images are presented as Polaroid photos. Cool effect and totally free!
