Hallmark's Smilebox provides an easy and
quick way to get a slideshow together and
emailed. Their templates range from the very simple,
classic and clean, to the all out "scrapbook" look.
There are single page "postcards" and multi-page
"books". Thankfully, Hallmark has the styles
grouped and sorted nicely, so finding a simple
slideshow with minimal graphics is fairly easy.
A choice of 3 music tracks is provided for each
Smilebox for free in the "basic" package, but you can opt
for the "premium" package, which allows unlimited
music choices, bigger viewing size and no
advertisements on the page.
The "basic" package is 100% free, if you
don't mind the smaller size, the ads, and
limited music clip choices.
The slideshows below are the "basic" version
and can be emailed, forwarded or blogged now, or
at any time in the future.
If you look carefully past
Hallmark's family oriented, busy graphics, you'll
find the simple, clean designs for
more serious photography slideshows.
