One way to make your photo collections less boring for others is to turn them into presentations with music etc.
ExeShow is a user friendly program that takes your photos and turns them into impressive presentations in just a few minutes. There's not much to it other than selecting the photos you want to use (although it can only handle BMP, JPG or GIF formats) and ExeShow processes them and then creates an EXE file that you can send to anyone to watch. The advantage of this is that they don't need to have ExeShow or any kind of presentation software installed to view it - the EXE show comes with it's own player. You can preview the slideshow at any moment and change the way the transitions work (from top left to top right, bottom to top etc). However, while you have a lot of control over the way the transitions work, you don't actually have much choice over how the style of the transitions. In addition, it would have been nice if you could add a few special effects to your photos and presentation but there are none on offer. On the plus side, you can add a soundtrack to your presentation to make your friends really impressed with your design skills.
Very easy to use and producing impressive results, ExeShow is a useful program for anyone who needs to send their presentations without relying on third party presentation software.
