Kizoa - Digital Story Telling
Kizoa is another website for creating Digital stories out of photos. The main difference so far is that it also offers the ability to edit those photos as well with more features than I have seen from the other web-based applications. You can add transitions, flash animations, text, effects, and frames to the pictures when adding them to the slide-show making them more appealing to the viewer.
You can sort your photos into albums and give photos tags helping you keep them organized. You can share it with others and create private groups that people can join. Kizoa is completely free. Uploading 100 photos was rather simple. I was blocked by the firewall at my school, but doing it from home was easy. The user interface was also very easy to use as well. With the free account you get 1024 MB of storage, so if you plan on using high quality images, you probably want to pay for an account.
When finished you can burn the slide-show to a DVD, convert slide-show into video, and download and play the slide-show offline. Impressive software. Feels like they took the best of some of the others and combined them into one.
