Porta review

FREE

Manufacturer: Mikkel Stegmann

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

If you'd like to create photo albums on the web, you won't find a simpler way to do it than using Porta.

If you'd like to create photo albums on the web, you won't find a simpler way to do it than using Porta.

With a click or two, you'll be able to create completely formatted HTML-based albums, ready for the web. To make the album live, upload its entire folder on your hard disk to your website. Porta is all it takes. It doesn't even require money.

To create an album, run Porta, select the folder with the photos you want to put on the web, and Porta creates the album.

The program integrates with Windows Explorer; you can instead right-click a folder, and then select Porta to launch and create the album. You can also edit your album by choosing thumbnail sizes, image sizes, adding skins, and more. And you can add captions as well. If you prefer photo albums on CD, you can copy them to a CD.

If you use a web-based photo sharing service, such as Flickr, Shutterfly, or others, you won't have a need for Porta. But if you have your own website, and want to put photo albums on it, this freebie is a great bet.
