Turn your images into a polished PDF presentation with PDFrizator
When you need to share a set of images then you could turn them into a video with something like Freemake Video Converter: it’s quick, simple and easy to use.
The finished results can be a little basic, though, so if you’re looking for something more professional then it may be a better idea to build your very own PDF presentation. And PDFrizator is the perfect tool to get the job done.
The process starts by importing your images, and there are plenty of options here. PDFrizator can open common image types (GIF, PNG, JPG) and some less usual formats (CBR, CBZ), acquire scanned and other pictures via TWAIN, and conveniently it can even grab an image from the clipboard.
You don’t have the right picture? Click the Resources tab and you’re able to search Google Images, Bing Images, Picasa, Flickr and TwitPic, right from within the program. Handy filters help you trim down the results according to their size, colour, layout, file format and more (depending on the image source), and you can add them to your presentation in a click or two.
It’s just as easy to add an audio soundtrack, either from a local file or by searching SoundCloud.
You can then set the number of seconds you’d like each image to be on screen (or just leave this set to “-1″, which means the user will have to click to move to the next picture).
If cutting from one picture to another seems a little too dull then there are 16 transition effects to apply – fades, pushes, dissolves and more.
And when you’re done, creating the finished presentation is as easy as clicking File > Convert to PDF.
As you’d expect for a program labelled version 0.6, there are lots of issues here. The interface isn’t always as intuitive as we’d like; there’s no Help file; and it would really help if you were able to properly annotate and edit an image.
Even now, though, PDFrizator is a very capable free slideshow and presentation builder, and if you’d like an easy way to share images with others then the program could be an excellent choice.
