Funtastic Photos - convert your original photos into the work of art with a good number of distinct effects. If you are creating a photo album of some sort, this program will help you change your average photos into interesting and exciting "effect"-ive art.
The installed program takes nearly 80 megabytes of your hard drive space. The design is pretty generic and quite intuitive, therefore, the program is extremely easy to use. There are some pre-set custom effects available with a click of a mouse (sometimes two). Some effects are useless, but I guess for some super-duper creative people, even useless can mean something cool and outstanding. Out of offered 30 effects, I only found 5 that I'd use.
Advanced user can always check out the "Advanced Options" tab. This will allow the users to combine effects for one slide, as well as, fix exposure settings or adjust brightness and so on.
I could not find an option to make photo collages, unlike the website was advertising. I am sure I have to download some additional program or module to do so (or maybe buy the program). My pictures of San Diego and Freedom Arch in Saint Louis were already awesome, but this program made them less generic and more unique. This program is barely a bargain - even though it is extremely easy to use (ideal for grandmas!), there isn't enough cool stuff that would make you spend 35 dollars. I am sure there are better alternatives out there on the market.
