FlashSlider is a tool for creating flash slideshows/presentations with photos, transition effects and music.
Creating slideshows is a child's play with this tool at your disposal. All you have to do is set the movie size, add frames to it, browse for the pictures to be displayed in each frame, set the delay time between slides, add titles to pictures if you want to, add music (mp3 is supported), and select from many transition effects to make it interesting. You can choose to create a movie that will automatically play when loaded, or you can place buttons so that the viewer may select an action like play,stop, pause, etc.
There are more than 100 effects to select from, and you can assign one for each slide or for a group of slides. Other options worth mentioning: you can choose a preloader to be displayed, until the browser loads the movie, and you can add an URL address that will open a web page if clicked on.
The result is a SFW (Macromedia ShockWave Flash format) file, which you can publish to HTML or to Macromedia Projector.
