Now that most people own a digital camera, there’s no reason to maintain traditional photo albums anymore. Online galleries are in fashion and Arles Image Web Page Creator is certainly a good option for you to take your first steps into the HTML photo album world.
The first impression you get after launching the program is that you’re right in front of a standard image viewer, with the usual interface design: directory tree-like structure on the left, picture thumbnails on the right. In fact, Arles can also be used as image viewer, even with full screen capabilities, which are pretty handy.
However, this is not its main function. Arles is primarily designed to help you build HTML galleries with your pictures, but we must say it won’t make things easy for you, at least at the beginning. The customizing options are a bit hidden and you may end up with the feeling that you don’t even know where to begin. However, after a reasonable learning curve, you start taking advantage of all the possibilities featured in Arles.
You can basically personalize every little detail of your gallery, ranging from the size in which thumbnails should be displayed to the titles showed for both pictures and album pages. This high level of customization is something that users with some knowledge of HTML will appreciate, but the good thing is that you may just leave everything as it is, a possibility that novice users will be grateful for.
Arles also features the image effects function, a great tool that has been recently implemented. It allows you to add a series of special effects to your pictures, such as text or image overlays, borders, shadows, etc. These effects can be combined with each other and saved as presets to use them again some other time. The results are really attractive.
So, if you want to show -and share- your best digital pictures, Arles Image Web Page Creator is definitely the answer to your prayers. Give it a chance: create your own HTML image gallery and you will never go back to printed photos again.
