I was flipping thru some old postings on GIS blogs that I haven't read in a while. Rob Elkins, of Rise & Shout, mentioned Windows Powertoys. Had a go out it and downloaded the HTML Slide Show Wizard, Image Resizer, and a PowerToy Calculator. I've enjoyed the first two immensely but can only see myself using the conversions options in the calculator.
JAlbum is another great free program for making web albums of your photos. I've played around with different photo sharing programs before (see some examples here) but the options in JAlbum are fantastic. I especially like the BananaAlbum skin but this new SlideShow Powertoy may give it a run for its money.
Now if I could figure out a simple way to display my travel pics & stories with a web GIS mashup that didn't involve Google Maps.... hmmm.... any suggestions?
