Are photo slideshows getting a bit dull? With Sysygy Gallery Creator, you can show off your pictures in a 3D gallery.
This freeware program is hampered by being a little complex, but a bit of patience will result in some nice results. The program folder has four .EXE files, though you should only need two. First open the gallery creator, where you have to import your pictures. This is not hard, and you can import them in batches. Then the gallery has to be saved, and you can exit the creator. Next open the SysGame file, where you can select your picture set, and choose one of three 3D galleries to show your pictures.
There are some odd features of Sysygy Gallery Creator, not least the default setting of having CPU visitors joining you are you walk around your gallery. These visitors look like video game characters, and will even comment on your photos. There is also a soundtrack, and all of this stuff can be turned off or changed in the game options. You can import your own music playlist if you like, which is a nice touch.
Sysygy Gallery Creator is not the most user friendly program, but it's not too complex either. It would be improved if the gallery creator was available in the gallery viewer, but this is not the end of the world. The other negative aspect is that the number of pictures for each gallery is fixed - if you display less than possible, your gallery will have empty white frames in it. Placement of pictures in the gallery is random, which is a shame.
Despite its complications, Sysygy Gallery Creator it a cool little toy that puts a different spin on viewing your pictures.
