PhotoPeach review


Manufacturer: PhotoPeach

Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

PhotoPeach is an easy-to-use, web-based slideshow tool lets you share your photos and helps you discover those shared by others. Here's our PhotoPeach review.

PhotoPeach is a web-based slideshow builder that makes it easy to get started. The service directs you to upload your photos, either from your PC or laptop, or an from online service. But where rival PhotoSnack supports a whole host of online services, PhotoPeach is limited to Facebook and Picasa. That limitation would be acceptable if PhotoPeach's connection with those services worked, but I had trouble accessing any photos from Facebook: PhotoPeach bounced me to that site to log in, but never let me access my photo albums. The connection with Picasa worked flawlessly, though. See all Office software reviews.

If you're using the free version of PhotoPeach, you'll be limited to including 30 photos in your slideshow; any more and you have to subscribe to the $3-per-month Premium version. The Premium account also lets you upload your own music to accompany your slideshow, burn your slideshows to disc, and customize the transitions between photos. See all: PC Advisor software downloads.

Once your photos are uploaded, you can set the time interval for photos and the music you'd like to accompany your slideshow. If you haven't opted for a premium account, you're limited to PhotoPeach's small selection of background music or you can opt to search YouTube for a song of your liking. PhotoPeach doesn't offer any background templates; instead it keeps the focus right on your photos, which is a nice touch. It offers limited customization options, but casual users will find enough here to meet their needs.

And that's it: PhotoPeach then displays your slideshow. If you're a Premium member, you can burn it to DVD; users of the free service can share it via email or through various Web sites, such as Facebook and Twitter.

PhotoPeach is an easy-to-use service that lets you create basic slideshows. I like how its slideshows display your photos, and nothing but your photos. If you're looking for more of an animated background, consider Smilebox. And if you'd like more customization options, consider Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe or PhotoSnack. If you're looking for a no-fuss slideshow solution, PhotoPeach may fit the bill. If only it worked more seamlessly with Facebook, I could recommend it without hesitation.
